Forest of The Soul/Restless In Flight/Bindrune Recordings/2011 CD Review

Forest Of The Soul are a band from West Virginia that is a side project of Nechochwen that plays a mixture of neo-folk and countyr music with a progressive rock edge and this is a review of their 2011 album "Restless In Flight" which was released by Bindrune Recordings.

Drums are mostly slow to midpaced drumming with no fast playing and at times they sound tribal, while the synths are a very dark sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful tone that adds to the darkness of the music, in addition there is a harmonica being used on one song.

Rhythm guitars are all accoustic guitar riffs that combine neo-folk, country music and progressive rock mixed in with some finger picking that gives the music a classical feel while the lead guitars have a bluesy and progressive rock feel to them with some slide guitar playing being thrown in at times.

Vocals are all clean singing vocals with some black metal style whispers being used on the last song, while the lyrics cover dark and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very dark and professional sound to it.

In my opinion Forest Of The Souul are a very good neo-folk/country/progressive rock and if you are looking for aband that mixes these styles in a more dark direction, you should check ou this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Restless And Flight" "Green Heroes" "Sweet And Low Down" and "Forest Of The SOul". RECEMMONDED BUY.
