Review by kenethlevine
4 stars For their third full length release, SANGRE DE MUERDAGO resume their new found confidence resulting from several successful ventures in the preceding year. One of the main improvements was and still remains a bolder production and mix, from the vocals on down. Much like Italian neo folk contemporaries CORDE OBLIQUE, they specialize in gentle melodies driven by voice, acoustic guitar, strings and occasional more eclectic instrumentation. While Corde Oblique is said to be inspired by the ancient visual arts of Italy, SANGRE seems more nature focused; regardless, the effect is one of deep devotion in both cases, and of being in the presence of a spiritual link to not only their past but our shared pre-histories.

Pablo Ursusson remains the central figure and continues to shoulder most of the vocal duties but Emma Skemp takes on shared lead as well as atmospheric non verbal accompaniment, with spine tingling effect on "Xordas" (which translates to "deaf"), the title cut, and "Mensaxeiros Do Pasado". She also adds flute and drums. Georg Barner augments the male harmonies while playing the Swedish nyckelharpa, viola, and hammered dulcimer, and Bubu retains classical guitar duties, so this feels more like a band than ever before. "O Conxura" picks up the pace from its languid origins to a more vivacious flute led section, perhaps conveying the underlying "joie de vivre" inherent in this type of production. It's not so much a singing from the rooftops for others to hear as an unsung salve for the soul.

it's clear that SANGRE DE MUERDAGO is taking the long road and gathering followers as they convey themselves upon it, always taking time to savor where they were, where they might be going and most importantly, where they are now.
