Alne/Stworz/Warnija/Werewolf Promotion/2017 Split CD Review
This is a review of a split album between Poland's Alne and Stworz called "Warniha" which was released by Werewolf Promotion and we will start off the review with Alne a band that plays a pagan form of neo folk.
Their side of the split starts out with clean yet distorted guitars along with some drum beats and female vocals a few seconds later and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on their side of the recording and acoustic guitars are also used quite a bit on a regular basis.
Most of their tracks are long and epic in length and their is also a brief use of grim whispers that also adds in a touch of black metal and melodic guitar leads are also used briefly, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics are written in Polish and cover Slavic Paganism themes.
In my opinion Alne are a very great sounding pagan neo-folk project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Warminska Nok" and "Tesknota".
Next up is Stworz another project that plays a pagan form of neo folk.
Their side of the split starts out with nature sounds and folk instruments along with some ritualistic spoken word parts a few seconds later and after the intro acoustic guitars are added onto the recording and they use a good mixture of both finger picking and full chords while all of the other musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
One of the songs is all instrumental while the closing track is long and epic in length and the drum beats when they are utilized give the music a more tribal and shamanistic feeling, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics are written in Polish and cover Slavic Paganism themes.
In my opinion Stworz are a very great sounding pagan folk music project and if you are a fan of those musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lyna" and "Jutzenka".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of pagan folk music, 8 out of 10.
