Roots by Saor. This album is jawdropping, it bursts with life and layers In my opinion this should be celebrated as one of the best Debut albums of the 's at the very least Venombullet Artist: Falkenbach. Album: Ok Nefna Tysvar Ty. Branches as high as vigilant eye could see, Magic runes, once scratched into this tree. An old man sat down at this mighty oak, Every morning, day by day And he closed his eyes While a gasp blew through its leaves And he began to speak Roots as deep as the very depths of heart, Source for those who know what's still to come Man of wisdom and knowledge great, With hair as white as snow This section is also accompanied by keyboards which switch from backing ambience to truly obnoxious "UH UH UH" sounds which continue unmodified for about a minute.
The song then repeats. A lot. But frankly it can be forgiven as the vocal melody is just so good. As Long as the Winds Will Blow is next, and this is probably Falkenbach's best song from this and the previous album. Beautiful beginning, with very good use of acoustic guitars why didn't the band use them in the previous album? A typically attractive clean vocal melody presents itself, and for once the track does not outlast its welcome and comes to a satisfying conclusion: it's perhaps the only Falkenbach track which does - usually the material is stretched to twice this length.
Aduatuza starts with a sample. Nobody likes these, so let's ignore it. At least it's vaguely ambient. This is typical Falkenbach, the beginning is highly reminiscent of Walhall from the previous album, and then enters into a very standard Falkenbach melody which it feels as though I have heard once too often. Donar's Oak almost sounds routine.
Unto the Ardent Awaited Land marks a change, using only acoustic guitars. Of course, the ubiquitous keyboards are also present, playing a "choral" melody barely better than the little shocker in Vanadis. Following the feel of the previous tracks, this is entirely too "harmless" - metal with this many rough edges removes becomes plain.
Homeward Shore is the first track to offer a riff that could be considered heavy. It sounds pleasantly epic with more acoustic strumming backing it a welcome change from the keys. Unfortunately the effect is a blandness which even the short song length cannot dissapate.
Farewell at least ends the album on a higher level. The vocal melody is appealing and displays echoes of Garm in Ulver's Bergtatt. The reason that this album is inferior to Magni Blandinn Ok Megintiri is that while it doesn't have the truly terrible distorted spoken vocals used there, the style has become formulaic and the overproduced guitars sound weak and sugary, boosting the overall lethargic feel to the album. A simple comparison of the opening tracks on both releases reveal an intolerable amount of similarities which allowed the later track to be extremely predictable.
A while back I looked through my CD collection and searched for some albums that I had not listened to for a long time and stumbled upon Falkenbach's "Heralding - The Fireblade" and after listening to it for a while I decided to get some more material by Falkenbach. So I went to my local record store and ordered this album and after waiting two weeks I finally got to listen to it. I was a bit disappointed.
The album started out nice with the nine minute epic "Vanadis", with epic keyboards, pounding drums and There's no guitar, but instead this annoying flute playing the melody. The first time I could hear the guitar was when that guy started to do some black metal vocals. I hoped the album would continue like that, but I was disappointed again. That little bit aside, there's no black metal influence on this album and no riffs on half of the songs.
The second half of this album is better, it has some good riffs, which are not buried under a lot of keyboards and folk instruments. There are too much clean vocals on "Ok Nefna Tysvar Ty" and the drumming fits the music pretty well, but gets boring after a while. The only thing that's done nearly perfect is the usage of the bass.
The bass lines are not really creative, but I like the way they are integrated in the music. All in all, "Ok Nefna Tysvar Ty" is a solid album that fans of cheesy epic folk metal will like, but I personally prefer the more raw style of Falkenbach's other albums. Best song: "Donar's Oak" Worst song: " First a little background info for newcomers to Falkenbach - Falkenbach was created back in by Vratyas Vakyas. After releasing numerous limited demos which are as good as impossible to get mp3s of nowadays he decided to release the first full length in It was released so late after the bands formation since he had been having trouble recording and getting the right sound in the studio where he wished to record the Fireblade, which was released On this album he also has a few session musicians helping him out with drums and such.
The guitars are mixed well and are very distinct, in contrast to the earlier cds. The bass is hard to hear sometimes but is definitely there. Drumwise I have no complaints either, drums usually sound good to me when everything is clearly heard as is the case here. The keys are also very audible and mixed very well into the rest of music. As long as winds will blow My pride will be And a star will shine From far away As long as winds will blow My pride will be And hate remains Inside my heart At night a star did shine upon What once was build on my ancestors' land When once I was young Willing to learn From the old and the wise As long as winds will blow My pride will be And hate remains Inside my heart Evening fell unto this land That once was build by my ancestors' hand When I was young Willing to fight Aduatuza Once on Tenkterian grounds Hidden in the depths of woods Near the shore of Rhine Once was build the home of mine Landmark of resistance - Aduatuza Tenkterian fortress - Aduatuza Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.
