Truly in league with their own.
One of the scarce examples of origininal neofolk out there.
These austrian ensemble adds a variety of non common elemments to the conservative regime that neofolk has turned into. Humour, momentous,authentic folk instruments and inspiration, lots of ambient and sense of nature and last of all interesting lyricism.
They seem to be very expert in the use of traditional folk instruments from the alpine regions as well as the themes and concepts used. Happy accordions with strange percussions as well as trouvador-esque chants with lots of accent and grace conform the more uncommon pieces, there's interludes with ambient passages enterely performed with organic instruments and off course you'll find more common neo-folk pieces in where guitar has a predominant role. There's some martial beat present in some tunes, but it express more about heart pounding than militar erections.
Their experimental sets inspire a lot of naturalness (organic sounds that place yourself in the midst of alpine woods and mountain peaks with the world above your feet) mysticism and paganism are present too.
"Des blutes schwere schuld" is the more solemn and somehow "germanic" tune in the whole album, trascendental and proud, the drum intrusion gives a special feel that enhances the more natural and personal aspect of it.
From amongst the vast crowd of clones that plague the scene, this is truly a band that deserves a special place and attention as they are able to escape the cliché that has turned neo-folk into a joke.
