Liholesie - Videniya [Stygian Crypt Productions - 2007]

Videniya (The Visions) takes you soaring over vast forests, down deep dark green valleys and falling through nature  engulfed ruins , It feels like the soundtrack to when nature has taking itís planet back and few humans roam the landscape, where animals graze undisturbed and natural spirits roam the woodland glades and the tallest evergreens.  

Itís a mixture of earthy electronica/ synth scapes that soar and ebb ,Neo folk, slight new- ageness (but never too overbear or camp) and sampled  natural sounds. All the tracks are vocaless and instrumental, with a mix of sparklering brook to darker moss hued synth work, drums- electronic and otherwise, acoustic guitar and the odd more exotic and woodland bound folk instruments weaved in here and there. Along with the sounds of bird song, rushing water and woodland crunch aptly mixed in never become too overbearing or tacky. It has a very retro feeling sounding quite grounded in the late 70ís to early 80ís, with some more updated almost  ance beats sneaking in here and there, but these are far an few between and donít really sit well with the rest of the albums vibe. In places it also brought to mind most some of Burzum's more keyboard soaked moments but with a little more musical depth to them, it has that same earthy and often dark timeless wonder to it, but this is  also triumphant and tuneful.

It all comes in a rather fitting all green and woodland imagery filled 8 panel Digipak. It's an enjoyable and memorable album  that whisks itís listerner off to another time away from city scapes into endless green and the forest mysterious and beautiful calls. To find out more & to buy direct follow this path.
