27/05/2014, Filip VAN MUYLEM

After reviewing the Folk compilation (see link underneath) I got contacted by a Russian band presenting their newest cd and I must say I was surprised in the most positive way! Thanks a lot!

This band used a big hurdy-gurdy (Russian medieval version), drums, war horn (medieval Russian instrument for armies), bouzouki, gusli, gudok, fluets, vargans (jaw harp), Russian bagpipe... A lot of nice instruments to create their sound! The repertoire of Vedan Kolod includes original songs based on Old Russian language, authentic and folklore songs of the Siberian people, myths and legends of Western Russia

The first track 'Witch (folk lyrics, music by T. Naryshkina)' sounds like a mix between Medieval Babes and Daemonia Nymphe and that is just great! The traditional instruments give it a great sound. I'm also very keen on the different voices. The voices are done in a different way as in Dead Can Dance, but it's absolutely done in a very good way!
'Harvest (folk lyrics, music by T. Naryshkina)' starts with a nice flute and some acoustic guitar. The female voices are lovely mixed. It's also already very clear that this record is presenting the kind of music you can listen too for like forever. Simply mesmerizing!
'Wheel (folk lyrics, music by V. Naryshkin)' is made from the same wood and as good! 'Woe (lyrics by T. Naryshkina, music by V. and T. Naryshkin)' has a nice throat singer in it and reminds me of a nice concert at the Dour festival ages ago (a special project presented by C-drik) 'Arrow (folk lyrics, music by V. Naryshkin)' in this one we get high and low vocal tones, as if they want to show off how good they are and succeed brilliantly! Simply enchanting my day! 'Shrovetide (folk lyrics, music by V. and T. Naryshkin)' has a nice tribal sound! 'In our street (folk lyrics, music by T. Naryshkina)' is driven by something that sounds like a violin or a violoncello. 'Wreath (lyrics and music by T. and V. Naryshkin)' sounds like an Indian mantra, all because of the nice percussions and vocals. The flute gives it a more campfire feeling. A bit more and I start to see dancing Indians around a fire!
'At the Kupala's feast (lyrics by T. Naryshkina, music by V. Naryshkin)' is driven by different female voices and a nice Russian bagpipe! 'Grey Bird (lyrics and music by V. Naryshkin)'presents us a great mix of female and male voices! A great track! Where is the repeat function?!

This one was more than worth it!

I hope you also check out the Folk compilation!
