Over the years Neo-folk has taken upon itself the imprint of various cultures encounter through its journeying. We present to youthe Lament, to communicateour own experience of sorrow and beauty, death and ruin on this ravaged land, coated withnordic tradition,to tell of the melancholy of oriental instruments,of its power to set one free.
Three absolutely massive, epic tracks that blend elements of black metal, melodeath, and traditional Chinese folk music. Think Dimmu Borgir meets Panopticon meets Chthonic meets Strapping Young Lad.
The metal tracks are punctuated by quiet, atmospheric pieces mostly executed with folk instruments. There's a little more of this kind of thing than I usually like in a metal album, but they're extremely well-done and they set the tone for the harsher music perfectly. Justin
