A bridge between folk, gothic and metal

Today, I went on a shopping spree. No, don’t be scared, I didn't buy any clothes!

I really felt like buying lots of CDs, so I dragged my boyfriend to the record shop and we indulged in buying the following albums:

I guess those albums are a bit of a consolation prize for not being able to go to the Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig and for not being able to attend Haggard’s performance at Castle Rock in Mülheim.

 

In fact, I wanted to tell you something about the new Haggard album: “Eppur Si Muove”.

As it happens, it contains an Italian track called “Herr Mannelig”, the Swedish version of which also appears on the exquisite album “Guds Spelemän” by the folk band Garmarna.

This proves again that it’s a thin line between gothic, folk and even metal…and that’s exactly what “Ad Mortem Festinamus” is all about: building bridges between gothic, folk and metal.

 

PS: You can read my reviews on the performances of Qntal, God Module and Decoded Feedback at the Invitation 2004. You also can read two reviews on Garmarna’s performance at CC De Stroming in Sleidinge. All those reviews are written in Dutch.
