Defile Des Ames/Lust 'n' Stone/Ahnstern/2008 CD Review

Defile Des Ames are a band from Greece that plays a style that i would describe as being dark Avant-Garde Folk and this is a review of their 2008 album "Lust 'n' Stone" which was released by Ahnstern.

Drums are mostly slow to midpaced beats with some percussion being used at times and some fast drumming, while the folk instruments such as the clarinet and flute give the music a heavy folk music feel.

Accoustic guitars are mostly full chords and fingerpicking that give the music a medievel feel, while the vocals are a mixture of spoken word passages and clean singing vocals with some aggression being used at times that has a slight black metal feel to it, as for the noise effects when they are used they bring an avant garde feel to the music.

Lyrics cover violence, rage, murder, purity, winds, mushrooms and the philosophies of Anton Levay, while the production has a very dark and medievel feel to it.

In my opinion Defile Deas Ames are a very good neo-folk band that should appeal to all fans of this genre. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Carnal Desire" "Mushrooms" "Liar" and "Under The Spell". RECEMMONDED BUY.
