August 25th, 2013, I opened this new website for Sword Chant.
The forum for Sword Chant was born by November 2007  and I manage everything Sword Chant since that time...
A long time I wonder how many page views could be for this new website after one year but today, I have the answer:
31,000 page views!
Dear Jonne Järvelä & Korpiklaani: if you can see this post,  Yes, this website is still flourishing! :-)
