V/A "Whom the Moon a Nightsong Sings" Double CD (2xCD digipak) [ulver, empyrium]
Import from EU. Unrivalled compilation of nature-mystical Dark Folk.
"Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings" is a compilation of rare value: a two-CD collection with a playing time of over 100 minutes that unites all the main players and the most promising newcomers of a nameless genre that is defined by (mostly) acoustic musical settings of nature's sceneries and impressions, or of personal sentiments mirrored in nature. The fact that nearly all of the songs included here are either exclusive to this project or rare tracks that aren't otherwise available anymore serves to emphasise the extraordinary character of this release. One of the highlights on "Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings" is certainly Empyrium's contribution - the ensemble's first new recording in four years and the impressive beginning of a new creative period. Also featured are the genre's founding fathers, Ulver, with a very rare recording from 1997: their track 'Synen' was only featured on a very limited underground compilation and is probably the Norwegians' most sought-after song.
