A shiny gem that let the listener astonished. It’s a sort of pan-global folk cauldron where several influences converge discretely like ripples in a big river.
Sleeping in a Dream sounds like a tune like the most inspired Bert Jansch mesmerized by a siren. In Voices From the Mountain folk is a tool to embrace the open space. North african desert echoes cross the inner idea of Alter. The 13 minutes of Lay Down Your Arms with an impressionist brushwork of acid guitar strikes one of the highest peaks. The elegant Promises Unbroken dinify the closing time. Great Album.

Thank You

A combination of influences including folk, medieval, and middle eastern. Very much like Dead Can Dance in many ways.
Very nice, thank you!
