In 4-panel EcoWallet. Apocalyptic (neo)Folk and Medieval renaissance! As already shortly pre-announced,
' Saturday May 26, 22:45h headlining appearance at the Wave Gotik Treffen's Schauspielhaus/Centraltheater in Leipzig Germany!
With Burials Foretold, enigmatic Projekt recording artists Unto Ashes
emerge with an extraordinary work that radiates darkened light from a buried heart. Among the vanguard of apocalyptic folk and neo-Medieval music, Unto Ashes
' Burials Foretold will be classed as one of the preeminent statements of a unique genre that Unto Ashes
define almost single-handedly. Burials Foretold is graced by the unsurpassed vocal harmonies of Hagle, Laird and Lincoln, last heard together on Unto Ashes
' Empty Into White (Projekt 2003).
The present album was performed on an unusually broad array of original Medieval and Renaissance instruments including viola da gamba, hurdy-gurdy, harmonium, dulcimer, bagpipes, French horn and cello, interwoven by acoustic guitar, bells, piano and much more. One of the most luminous tracks on Burials Foretold is the exquisite "She Binds Away the Night," written as a Pagan prayer that seeks to evoke ancient rites, and does so brilliantly with hypnotic stringed instruments, regal French horns and sublime choral vocals.
The poignancy and majesty of these fifteen timeless songs will continue to echo and resonate within the listener's mind for a long time, beckoning for repeated listening. It is surely one of the finest Unto Ashes
albums ever recorded.
