5.0 out of 5 stars Not just another orchestra/metal album!!! June 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I first listened to this album I said its ok. The death vocals scared the s@$t out of me but I liked it. The second was still ok. The third was good. The fourth time was even better and from that point on my feelings each time I listened to it was more and more of amazement about this masterpiece.
This isn't another metal album that combines operatic chores and symphonic orchestra just to impress the listener. Each organ that is played by the band's members (there are no session musicians here) has a meaning with the whole result being a solid and surprising album.
To me this is far more superior that "Theli" from Therion (even though they are quite different) who first began this wave of orchestra/ metal.
It's more of a classical music with metal characteristics than the other way around. This means that the more you listen to it the more you like it. If the music tires you because of the changes the first times that you listen to it know that it is just for the beggining. For example, to me the classical music sounds very tiring and difficult. Haggard manages to have all the aspects of classical music but without boring the listener.
There are great operatic chores, death metal vocals, heavy guitars, but mostly about 15 traditional organs that give Haggard their own identity and sets them appart from the rest of the bands that follow this music pattern.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth buying Oct. 14 2000
By Süleyman Okan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Haggard have been around for many years, but only with this album they could meet fame. Their orchestral sound has gained a touch of metal in The Seer. But in many places the metal sound feels like an instrument to give voice to the anger that is expressed in the album. It is so subtle most of the time that you can expect the same sound from a symphony orchestra. So Haggard has not changed in the essence of their music. Do you want a proof? My mother listens to it.

The album, overall, is one of the best I have listened to in these past two years. Their folk, as well as Baroque, not to mention metal, melodies, touching upon many classical works such as Peter and the Wolf, arranged and collaged in such a beautiful way, enhanced with the use of three languages, create a genre rarely explored before. Even though the repetition of certain beats and tunes create a sense of 'cut and paste' after some time, there is no denying the immense effort that went into this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Music Ever Nov. 7 2004
By Mikail Goykhman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I just got my hands on this album I was expecting something more in the genre of Therion, Nightwish, and perhaps other Symphonic Metal bands. However, this band is completely differnt from the above, not that Therion is bad, they're awesome as well. However, Haggard has much more depth to it. The music never has a simple repeating beat, there are intricate transitions and parts for all of the 16 members of the band. Even the vocals are amazing, which range from operatic female vocals to the black/death grunts of the male vocalist, however the this is no death metal. The male vocals are perfectly in place and as someone added in a previous review, the vocals add to the angry/sad tone of the music in certain places. Seriously though, I am not a fan of death metal and only occasionaly listen to black metal (Check out Tvangeste, awesome band that utilizes a whole orchestra as well, however the vocals are more toward black metal), but this music is awesome. It's more toward the classical genre, however a fan of Symphonic Metal will love this as will anyone who has an appreciation for good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique March 19 2001
By DaRkSoL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I finally got my hands on this CD at (of all places) a Theatre of Tragedy gig and was glad to discover that it lives up to all the praise I'd heard about it. Though other bands mix classical elements with heavier music, I think Haggard is in a league all of it's own with this album.
I guess the difference is that Haggard actually uses the 14 piece orchestra as an integral part of their compositions rather than an atmospheric touch, lending the whole concept a more flowing, natural sound. And rather than drawing their influences from more recent classical music, they manage to incorporate lavish baroque sounds and choral work for a very full, rich sound. To top it off, the clean vocals and lyrics are very high quality, making this album cerebral beyond it's dazzling musicianship.
For all these reasons, the album gets a tad complex and is a bit difficult to listen to the first couple of times. After that it just grows on you in a big, big way. Perhaps the only caveat is that there are sometimes a few amateurish time changes, but I guess they can be attributed to inexperience. I expect their new album to be absolutely awesome, if this one is any indication. Another triumph for european metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of man's brightest chapters, it has just begun... Feb. 17 2000
By Miki and Marina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard CD "And thou shalt trust...the seer" I was blown away. I could not even imagine the appearance of such an impressive music in the mixture of Classics, Folk and some elements of melodic Death metal. The idea of using 16 talented musicians in one band is great, so all orchestral moments sound clear. While listening to the above album, I've really made a journey through the time: there were medieval melodies performed by piano and keyboards, incredible viola, violoncello, violin playing, and also modern guitar sound. The performance of both female soprano vocals and male death vocals (although at sometimes male vocals sound clear) appends to the atmospheric mood but is not boring as it commonly sounds into gothic/doom/death albums. Choir support is professional, and I also love their singing in the English and Latin languages. Music is very melodic and eminent, pretentious too; it is hard to describe by words - you just have to listen to it and never be disappointed. So, at the end, all I want to say is that I've own this CD for more than 2 years and it is still my favorite of all times, I still listen to it a lot and always open something new. Haggard became immortal straight away after their first disk was released.
