Klammhiem/Hiemarts/Heimatfolk/2009 CD Review

Klammhiem are a neo-folk band from Austria that mixes elements of Austropop in their music and this is a review of their 2009 album "Heimwarts" which was released by Heimatfolk.

percussions when they are used are very soft and slow beats, while the accordian has a very heavy European folk music feel, as for the bass it is only used as a back drop.

Accoustic guitars utilize alot of full chords, fingerpicking and soft play to get a medievel feel with the last song having an electric guitar solo, while the vocals are all clean singing female and male vocals.

Lyrics are written in the ancient Styrian dialect and are aboutthe longing for Hiemet, the mythical homeland of german romantics, and the writings of Paula Grogger, as for the music it has a very professional feel and you can hear all of the instruemnts that are present on this recording.

In my opinion Klammheim are a very good esoteric neo-folk band that should appeal to all fans of this genre. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Irrlicht" "Namenlos" "Scharweisse Welt" and "wandel zur Ruh". RECOMMENDED BUY.
