Sturmpercht/Schattenlieder/Percht/2010 CD Review

Sturmpercht are a band that are one of the originators of Alpine Folk that has also had one of thier previous albums reviewed in this zine and this is a review of their 2010 album "Schattenlieder" which was released by Percht.

Drums are mostly slow beats,while the accordians bring out the feel of the forests, as for the flutes they have a very medievel sounding feel to them.

Accoustic guitars are mostly slow to midpaced folk music guitar riffs, while the lyrics are mostly clean singing vocals with some whispers being used at times along with spoken word passages.

Lyrics are written in german and ther are about heathen legends, strange fairies, and pagan rites, as for the production it has a very powerful sound to it that gives all of the musical instruments a good sound.

In my opinion this is another good album fro Sturmpercht and fans of this band as well as Neo_Folk wont be dissapointed. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Stechapfeinacht" "Salamanderschnaps" "Der Tranekrug" and "Die Teufelsgeiger". RECEMMONDED BUY.
