Kreiviskai are a band from Tyver that plays a mixture of neo-folk and ethno ambient and this is a review of their 2014 album "Zemmis Suapnai" which was released by Casus Belli Musica.
A very dark and atmospheric ambient sound starts off the album along with some acoustic guitars that bring in elements of folk music which leads up to spoken word parts being added onto the recording as well as some traditional Slavic folk music instruments which they also mix in with the epic structures of dungeon synth.
Melodic male and female pagan chants and vocals can be heard in certain sections of the recording and every track sounds different from each other with some being vocal and the others instrumental and you can hear a great amount of traces of shamanistic and tribal music in the bands musical style along with some nature sounds being used on a frequent basis throughout the recording.
Kreiviski creates a very pagan orientated style of neo folk which they also mix in with ethno ambient, dungeon synth and martial which makes all of the songs have an original sound to them, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics are written in their native tongue and cover the Paganism of Tyver.
In my opinion Kreiviskai are a very great sounding mixture of neo-folk and ethno ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sny Zemli" "Malduns be Mergus" "Marsh Krivdy" and "Svyatvyachor". 8 out of 10.
