As the serene woodland digipack leads to suspect, Liholesie isnТt metal. Instead, it is a true breath of fresh air in the form of brilliantly structured neo-folk blended with dark wave and nature sounds. Amazing how this Russian one-man project creates an abundance of atmosphere ranging from dark to light hearted. Synthesizers, flutes, guitars and even a beat here and there. Not every song is of equal quality, but overall the album is a joy to listen to. References are Ulf Soderberg, Omnia, David Arkenstone, Е This wonТt be the music for most metal minded people, but I urge anyone with an open mind to at least give it a try.
