Of Wand and the Moon - Nighttime nightrhymes

A gorgeous cd from this danish neo-folk band, this is the first record of the only member, Kim Larsen, there's a lot of people that don't penetrate to the world of Neo-Folk, because they consider the genre quite boring, well this cd is completely different from everything else, the acoustic guitars are just magicals, the lyrics have a whole ranging of explosive emotions and feelings, from love and loss or joy, to germanic paganism, this is not pure neo-folk, take it as an intermediate moment, more sounds and active, beautiful in every sense, the whispered voice throughout the whole cd just help to intensify the experience, it's a good deal for the people that haven't decided wether enter or not into the dark side of the folk and the martial music.

Espléndido disco de esta banda de Neo-folk, la primera composición de su único miembro Kim Larsen, hay mucha gente que no penetra en el mundo del Neo-Folk porque la experiencia se le hace aburrida, pues este no es el caso de este disco, las guitarras acústicas son geniales, las letras tienen toda una gama de sentimiento y emociones de amor, pérdida, regocijo e incluso paganismo germánico, esta experiencia no es solo neo-folk, es un momento intermedio, más movido, hermoso en todo sentido, las voces susurradas durante todo el disco solamente ayudan a intensificar la experiencia, es un excelente disco para los que no se han decidio entrar de lleno a ese lado más oscuro del folk y la música marcial, espero y lo disfruten.
