Calm gothic "Ograv torat"
::: Darkwave/Ambient; Russian Federation :::
"You wish sometimes to give all to know the future, do not you? To know in the morning what will happen in the evening. Or to know what will happen with you after months, years...I think not once you wished to receive answers to these questions. Do you think about your dreams and thoughts that appear sudden and like from nowhere? Whence it? What for?"

"Ograv torat" is the 3rd album of Russian one-woman project "Calm gothic". This work is inspired by the practical interest to tarot cards and it's some kind of musical reflection of powerful meaning of those cards (of some Senior Arcans, to be more concrete).
Beautiful gothic-oriented voice of Sindell, bright and atmospheric sounding of darkwave music and thematic artworks from Maria Sklepova makes this album a true gift for the fans of different posing of dark-scene.

Soms durft een mens wel eens in herhaling vallen want wederom moeten we hier vertellen dat dit een release is die enkel via download te verkrijgen is, maar het goede van de zaak is : het is geheel gratis.

Je kan je blijven afstoten tegen de huidige “downloadisering” van de muziekscene maar als het grootste deel van de cd’s niet meer verkocht geraakt, moet je er iets met doen (je kan ook gewoonweg stoppen met naar nieuwe muziek te luisteren, maar daarvoor ben je geen muziekfan geworden).

Lomeanor is een Russische website (in het Engels weliswaar) die nieuwe dark ambient en neofolkprojecten gratis aanbiedt en de meest recente release is van de Old Village.

Dit Portugees project ontstond ergens in 2007 en het was de bedoeling om de beste elementen van dark folk, neofolk en dark ambient in één trechter te gieten om daar dan het beste uit te halen.

Het duurde wel bijna vier jaar (op een eenzame EP na) vooraleer deze groep met een eerste album voor de dag kan komen, maar het was het wachten waard.

“Infinito” beluisteren is net zoiets als een fantasyboek lezen want er is niet alleen een gelijkaardige atmosfeer, je valt ook van de ene verbazing in de andere..

Men probeerde hier een werk te creëren dat de rites en de gewoontes uit een oude onbekende wereld weergeeft en je hebt het gevoel dat er ieder moment een elfje of één of andere trol uit je speakers kan komen..

De meeste muziek hier is elektronisch gespeeld en roept herinneringen op aan Les Joyeaux De La Princesse (weliswaar minder experimenteel) en vooral aan de vroegere Dead Can Dance.

Absolute must voor iedere darkfolkliefhebber.

In het kader van “ik wil veel schone plaakskes maar ’t mag mij gene frank kosten” keren we eventjes terug naar het Russische netlabel Lomeanor.

Naar aanleiding van hun tweede verjaardag boden verschillende groepen uit de dark ambient en de industrial-sfeer exclusieve tracks aan.

De meest bekende groep is hier zonder twijfel Eldar (die onlangs een deal op Cold Meat Industry verzilverd hebben) en daarnaast ook een track van hun zijproject, Asbaar.

Voor de rest vind je hier nummers van Nosens, Verney 1826, Morpheus, The Willow Landscape, Arts of Empathy en Aevum Spiritus.

Ik heb het steeds zinloos gevonden om bij een compilatie iedere track te gaan bespreken, zeker in het geval van een gratis release want het is net door zulke lovenswaardige initiatieven dat je als muziekliefhebber een mooie introductie bekomt om bands te ontdekken die normaal gezien uw oorkanaal niet bereiken.

De meeste tracks zijn van het gitzwarte soort, ambientmuziek die maar al te graag verwijst naar neofolkinvloeden (soms de vroegere Death In June) of de courante kannonen op het Cold Meat Industry-label.

Downloaden die handel en de pintjes die we tegoed hebben voor de tip, opsturen naar Dark Entries en Rusland.

We were quiet for a long time, but now we are ready to talk about some present and upcoming changes in the life of label. At the first, "distro" page was deleted. We want to say our "sorry" to Skeksis and FunerART for this decision. At the second newsletter function were temporally disabled too. This tool seems to us a bit superfluous for this website. Instead we opened the "News" page to get a possibility to socialize with you in more free form than static messages. And you know that lomeanor.net.ru updating rarely, therefore we added "Latest updates" block. It must be easy to use.
Good news: we will upload 2 new releases for the fans of folk and modern ambient very soon. We are sincerely hoping that you will stay with us. Thank you.
