Prog Reviewer
4 stars A darkly majestic brand of progressive folk music is offered up by Corde Oblique on The Stones of Napes. Applying folk music structures and compositions to orchestral instrumentation, with delicate, magnificent vocals in the performers' native Italian, results in a blending of distinct historical musical traditions into a novel and deeply moving new style. It's no surprise that Corde Oblique have been cited by some as part of the whole "neofolk" style, though happily to my knowledge their work is genuinely free both of militaristic/fascist imagery and of far-right ties, so those who are concerned about the way other neofolk groups toy with such things can breathe a little easier here.
Warthur | 4/5 |
