Jannerwin/Abendlauten/Heimatolk/2009 CD Review

Jannerwein are a band from Austria that mixes old school folk music with neo-folk and alpine folk with martial rhythms and this is a review of their 2009 album "Abendlauten" which was released by Heimatolk.

There are alot of alpine instruments being used such as harmonica, bells, marchial-grums, flutes, lyra and violins that give the music a classic folk music feel with some electronic elements being used at times.

Accoustic guitars use alot of full chords and fingerpicking to bring an ancient musical sound with some solos being used at times, while the vocals are all clean singing, while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Swiss and English and are about sad topics with some Gnostic Christian rituals and mysteries from the Alps, while the production has a very dark and ancient feel.

In my opion Jannerwein are a very good neo-folk band that should appeal to all fans of this genre. Recemmonded tracks include "The Grass Is Always Browner" "Den Berg Empor" "Wehmut" and "Abendgebet". RECEMMONDED BUY.
