Jahrtal is a musician from Austria that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that combines drone, psychedelic and neo folk together and this is a review of their 2009 album "Reprisen & Instrumentalstuecke" which was released by Merlin's Nose.
Sound effects and synths bring elements of dark ambient and drone to the recording as well as mixing in some heavy distortion, while the flutes and other folk instruments bring the psychedelic, ethnic, and neo folk elements to the album.
Acoustic guitars use finger picking and full chords to bring in more folk music elements and there is no use of vocals or song writing present on this recording except briefly on one song and they are all clean singing neo folk vocals, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful and dark sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this album with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Jahrtl and if you are a fan of drone, psychedelic and neo folk, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Reprise II" "Reprise VII" "Im Jahrtal" and "Reprise XI". RECOMMENDED BUY.
