Saffron Wood - «Platonica filosofia della temperanza»
Saffron Wood - «Platonica filosofia della temperanza»
CD 2006, Hic Sunt Leones
12.00 €URO
A land hidden from controlled pleasures of rationality among soul, it is the first CD by Lorenzo Scopelliti, the single musical expression of Saffron Wood, rich in enthusiasm and love, embodied between discovery and long harmonies. An important page rich in unconscious characters and sonorous pigments put together. In an original evocative hemisphere a thinking walk between the Greek Skopelos and the mediterranean Sicily. The Friscalettu flutes, the impulsive tibetan trumpet and his bells. The vibrating harmonious dances of the sicilian Maranzannu and the Vietnamese Danmoi, the evocative sonority of the Indian Dilruba and the Egyptian Rebab, the shy puffs of the Shakuhachi and the indian Bansuri, the cymbals, the ceramic and glass percussions, are in this way translated and transformed in "Platonic Philosophy" expressing the possible prophecy among soul, ground and the acoustic steps of a special peace.... where we often like to find ourselves.

CD 2007, Prikosnovenie
13.00 €URO
Here is a new beautiful album of the virtuoso violonist Ivo Sedlacek. This time the musician built his album around tones of a rare instrument: The Monochord. It's a kind of table with a resonance box with 20 strings, it looks like the Japanese 'Koto'.

This Garden of Silence is so peaceful. Pure and acurate sounds seems to be purified as crystal. This album is ideal for meditation, relaxation and harmonize with yourself. Music will lead your imagination to foggy japanese valleys, near a peaceful temple hidden in a forest. A Chef d'oeuvre.

Sieben - «High Broad Field»
Sieben - «High Broad Field»
Digipak CD+DVD, Trisol
20.00 €URO
The new studio album from Matt Howden charts a journey. A knight wakes from his burial mound after a thousand years of sleep. He journeys, seeking his purpose - along the way asking The Hills, The Moor, a tricky Devil, a selfish-child God, The Lamb, and the Earth itself. SIEBEN's new album is a pagent, a modern Medieval-Mystery Cycle play, steeped in atmosphere, laden with rich language, a world of Howden's own making. The violin loops, builds and soars, gently surrounding and enveloping the listener, pulling them into his world, caressing them along the way. The album evolves and unfolds beautifully, journeying to the centre of this mystery, resolving on the final song with a grand finale. Twelve wonderfully-crafted simple earthy songs.

Along with the CD, this double-digipak comes with a DVD film of High Broad Field! Conceived and directed by Portuguese film director Joao Paulo Simoes, the film is a visual feast, gently rolling across the landscapes of Howden's native North of England, evoking the same spine-tingling sensation as SIEBEN's ethereal and earthy music.



Sieben - «Desire Rites»
Sieben - «Desire Rites»
Digipak CD 2007, Trisol
16.00 €URO
For a long time the British Neo-Classic and Gothic Folk band SIEBEN and their singer and virtuoso Matt Howden have provided the world with an impressive sound: catchy and stirring tunes, ritual trance loops and an emotional voice. These characteristics have turned the last two releases Ogham and High Broad Field into highly praised and adored albums. As the title may suggest, this new style Desire Rites, deals with more personal and immediate topics. The 'rites of desire ask for more cutting sounds, precise rhythms and more direct lyrics. While SIEBEN's earlier works focussed dreamy, remote harmonies and fantasies, we are now confronted with stronger beats, a pulse of emotions which are even more hypnotic and driving than before. In the context of this deeply personal universe which reflects drastic personal changes in the life of Matt Howden, he demonstrates that he is a universal genius: He completed the album alone - without the help of guest musicians. Those who have had the chance to experience Matt Howden live will find the raw energy and passion he unleashes on stage in this very album. He simply takes his violin and uses his artistic intuition to create this unique powerful sound of his.

Desire Rites comes presented in a precious digipak and presents the lyrics in an atmospheric 28-pages booklet which visualizes the topics. It is designed by Howden's favourite designer Paul Jackson, whose artwork has already graced the most recent releases of Neo-folk legend CURRENT 93.

Many Hands Should Throw Stones is the eagerly awaited follow up to Sleeping Pictures' debut Nether Edge, which was described by critics as “A rare alchemy of melancholy and bitterness”.

Sol Invictus (United Kingdom) - «Sol Veritas Lux»
Sol Invictus - «Sol Veritas Lux»
Digipak CD 2006, Tursa
14.00 €URO
Even in this modern world, it seems every few years, some new resurgence of "folk music" rises out of nowhere and finds a welcoming following.

The latest wave commonly labeled as freak-, psych-, or wyrd-folk has given us such stars as Devendra Banhart, Akron/Family, and Six Organs of Admittance. From the English folk revival of the 60's, to this "New Weird America" movement now in full swing, the quality each of these moments has in common is looking respectfully to the past, while contributing a new twist appropriate to the times.

Just about two decades ago now, another curious folk music movement began to emerge. A strain of English "industrial" groups were looking for ways to impart new meaning into their bleak and frightening noise, and a new and highly creative, "post-industrial" folk music came to life, heavily charged with mystical and philosophical themes. "Neofolk" as it would come to be known is largely defined by early releases by Tony Wakeford's Sol Invictus, alongside fellow pioneer projects Current 93 and Death in June.

2006 now sees the reissue of one of the best and most important releases of neofolk, "Sol Veritas Lux" by Sol Invictus.

"Sol Veritas Lux" – which combines the debut "Against the Modern World" LP (1987) along with the live "In the Jaws of the Serpent" LP (1988) – is likely to rank as one of the most raw listening experiences you can ever find. Playing this album is like calling an arctic blast from Old Pagan Europe. It's cold and it's mean and it offers no apologies. Whatever you think, you are not ready to hear this album.

Over the following years Sol Invictus would smooth out the rough edges and produce many beautiful albums, but there are many who would argue "Sol Veritas Lux" shows Wakeford and company at their most potent and compelling. It has always stood as one of the best selling Sol Invictus releases.

The 2006 edition of "Sol Veritas Lux" celebrates nearly 20 years of Sol Invictus, presented in a luxurious package with new liner notes, and freshly remastered by Denis Blackham to bring out even more of its primitive glory. It offers three newly rerecorded bonus tracks showing a current interpretation on the same material.

The most remarkable achievement of Sol Invictus and the neofolk scene would have to be its enduring appeal. New releases and new concerts are received by a loyal cult following year after year. Watching the trends in the music world, it may even turn out the peak is yet to come for Tony Wakeford and friends.

Digipak CD 2004, Over the Rainbow a division of Scarecrow Records
13.00 €URO
Recorded at John Rivers ' legendary Woodbine-Studio, where such well-known acts like Dead Can Dance had been produced, the German-based Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of Shadows have created with their new concept-album another milestone of the Gothic/Avant-garde. Endowed with a perfect sense for drama and effect, the music of SOPOR AETERNUS is blending the classical genre with the attitude of the contemporary retro-ism of the 80's underground-culture, combining complex string- and orchestral arrangements with the weird peculiarity of the very own stylistic device; being deadly serious, while at the same time having a twinkle in the eye.

Inspired by Butoh and Kabuki , they are fusing Chinese fiddles and Wagnerian trombones with Death Rock drums and highly complicated bass or percussion rhythms, combining slavish dulcimers, tubas and recorders with the omnipresent death-knells, in order to build the beautifully scaring background for a unique voice, that is sometimes croaking with the malicious falsetto of a dying animal, sometimes reciting suicide-mantras with the sonorous baritone of an old man, only to turn into the screaming lament of a living corpse, bearing witness to the horrible atrocities of nightly visitors.

With Es reiten die Toten so schnell – or: The Vampyre sucking at his own Vein Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of Shadows have produced a most powerful and genre-bending classic that should quickly make its arrival into everybody's record-collection!

Competently they are sailing round the shoals of electronic pop-music of the last 30 years, while they are juggling with a astonishing multitude of fresh (though undeniably dark) melodies that it really makes it a pure joy to listen to. Produced by John A. Rivers (DEAD CAN DANCE, Clan Of Xymox).

Swans - «Cop/Young God/Greed/Holy Money»
Swans - «Cop/Young God/Greed/Holy Money»
2xCDs 2005, Some Bizarre
20.00 €URO
Originally released as three separate LPs: COP, GREED, and HOLY MONEY plus the EP YOUNG GOD. Swans play some of the most brutal songs that can still be called music. This two-disc set collects the band's third, fourth, and fifth albums, along with an early EP. Clearly influenced by Throbbing Gristle and Test Department, Swans take the basic template of industrial music, remove the last vestiges of punk rock--along with any semblance of humor--and create something so punishing, so monumentally "heavy," that it seems as though they really have to wrench out every sound.
