XVIIº Vie (France)
"La Prana" CD 1996, Prikosnovenie
14.00EUR • approx. 20.3USD [ back in stock ] : [ add to cart ]
Neo Classical/Heavenly Voices.

One of the earlier works by the people that later on came to form Les Sécrets de Morphée. Iris’ typical fairy voices are again well represented on “La Prana”, and, just as well, the band have used fairy-like imagery for some of the visual concept here, but still, the album comes across as a grievous trip through melancholic sceneries, with short occasional glances into medieval times. There’s hardly a smile on these fairy’s faces and their wings seem to have lost their magic glitter, even though they retain their beauty… Sad melodies, funeral march-like paced percussions, acoustic guitars, mournful female vocals and intriguing male vocals in a strange dialect merge in unique musical fragments, clad in a sweet introspective nostalgia that should appeal to fans of The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath A Cloud’s less militaristic material (although XVIIº Vie’s material is adorned with superior vocal delivery), or Ataraxia.
