FALKENSTEIN - Urdarbrunnen CD in digipack with 16-page lyric-booklet / Heimatfolk
Falkenstein is a young oaktree in the fairywoods of new Pagan Folk Music. Born out of the mystic nature and ancient cult-places of southern Germany, Falkenstein guides you gently to your heathen ancestors and their natural religion. Falkenstein's music is classical NeoFolk in best tradition, with beautiful lyrics about hallowed trees and woods, ancient tales from veiled times and long forgotten natural rites. Falkenstein is definitely a unique and outstanding NeoFolk artist of the new generation, who knows how to play his instruments and who's lyrics directly creep under the skin of each Pagan and Folk Music lover.
Falkensteins self produced debut-album "Heiliger Wald" gained a lot of applause in Folk music press and was highly recommended by many reviewers. their brandnew album "Urdarbrunnen" is now released by the STEINKLANG / AHNSTERN NeoFolk daughterlabel HEIMATFOLK. "Urdarbrunnen" is again a perfecly played, strong and dreamingly beautiful album with a rich, varied instrumentation, even more dense and powerful than the debut album. the musical range lasts from acoustic ballads over Martial Folk songs to dark fairietales about naturaly mysticism, paganism and natural rites in the Alpine regions. if Falkenstein would have been 40 years earlier, today they would stand in line with bands like early Steeleye Span, Magna Carta and Pentangle.
