Nebelkorona - Tannenhochforst [Heimatfolk - 2010]Nebelkorona releases "Tannenhochforst" four years after their last album the rather lengly titled "Reminiszenzen An Das Morgenrot / Relikte Des Abendrotes". The seven tracks on offer here add up to 41 minutes of deeply emotional neo folk that ranges from romantic music to dramatic lamentations. Tannenhochforst is a perfect, dark and wintry album for the fans of nostalgic Neo folk music.
The album opens with "Morgenstunden", a touching ballad that begins with a clean, painful melody and a warm, comforting singing. The music is bittersweet and filled with a notion of nostalgia that will grow as the album progresses. The third track, "Sonnenhall" manifests this sense of nostalgia with a sorrowful piano playing, darker vocals and dramatic atmosphere. "Dezemberabend", the fourth track, finds them returning to the mellow and touching music they had opened the album with. Next up is "Waldzauber", which is even more laid back, yet sinister sounding track. The album maintains this emotional turmoil through out, which keeps the album very dramatic without tiring the listeners.
Fans of romantic Neo folk will find this album a gem that should not be missed. "Tannenhochforst" should easily please those who look for a mellow music that hides a sting within it.
