ARNICA - Lecho de Piedra [CD]
'Lecho de Piedra' ('Deadbed Stone') is the new long play album by Àrnica. The Iberians are back with a astonishing new Ur-Folk album, presenting a big variety from harsher folk tunes ('Valle de Lobos'), over nature chants ('Monte Nublado-Cima', 'Trazos de Sangre') to warrior poetry ('Monte Nublado-Ladera', 'Las Plumas del Cuervo'), dealing with the concept of death on stones, inside mountains or within forests. In short: death in the outside and in nature.
Guitar, flutes, accordion, mouth harp, a lot of diferents drums, gralla, catalonian bagpipe, stones, bones, antlers, ratchets, cowbells, field recordings and a couple of samplers were used for the creation of this new masterpiece of Southern-Alpine Folkmusic.
A very special collaboration is in the song 'Una Bestia Astada' with Jay Kokopeli (Traum'er Leben), who joined the band with his wild breath.
Comes as 6-side digipack.
