Italy's Albireon have returned with a new recording which shows the music going for a mixture of experimental, ambient and neo-folk and this is a review of their 2022 album "A Mirror For Ashen Ghosts Part Two" which was released by Toten Schwann Records.
A very dark yet experimental sound starts off the album along with some clear vocals a few seconds later. Ambient style synths can also b e heard at times while the acoustic guitars also brign in elements of neo-folk when they are utilized and also add in a good mixture of finger piking at full chords.
Spoken word parts can also be heard at times while some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. A couple of songs are also instrumentals along with each song also sounding different from each other along with the songs also bringing in more of a dark atmosphere as the recording progresses, grim black metal s creams can also be heard briefly.
On this recording Albireon take ambient, experimental and neo-folk and mixes them together to create a very diverse recording. The production sounds very dark while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Italian and English and is a concept album based on the poets who committed suicide.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Albireon and if you are a f an of ambient, experimental and neo-folk, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nel Gelido Abbraccio Del Pozzo - Alfredino Rampi" "Nothing Wil l Die - Joseph Merrick" "Ghosts Of Everest - George Mallory" and "My Final Silence - Marco Corbelli.". 8 out of 10.
