Instructions: Recommend any 10 songs, write something about them if you want to, and pass this on!

  • Fjara by Sólstafir, a song that I will recommend to everyone to any given time, especially along with the video, it’s audiovisual perfect, really.

  • Autre Temps by Alcest, simply beautiful, as it takes you away dreaming. But I would recommend most songs/albums by Alcest, really. Beautifully melancholic, nostalgic. 

  • In A Robe Of Fire by :Of The Wand & The Moon:, because I simply love his soothing voice, especially in this very song. I’ve been listening way too much to it lately.

  • The River Splits The Stone by :novemthree:, it’s just such a wonderful neofolk song. Their lyrics are extraordinarily beautiful and this is a great example for that.

  • Korn by Forseti, again only one song that stands for the entire album/artist. Probably the most important artist of (not only) the German neofolk scene.
  • Not Unlike The Waves by Agalloch, from the Ashes Against The Grain album which comes closest to what I would call perfection. This one might even stand out a little bit.

  • Syrinx by Fauna, my favourite song by one my favourite atmospheric black metal bands. The highly atmospheric build up and the addition of female vocals near the end - wonderful.

  • Tearing Of The Weave by Alda, who are, in my opinion, ridiculously underrated. They definitely know how to create the kind of atmosphere I love in black metal.

  • Wanderer by Nebelung, based on a wonderful poem by the German poet Stefan George (1868-1933). Nebelung are also one of my favourite neofolk bands.

  • Empire Falls by Primordial, from my favourite album of theirs, To The Nameless Dead, which is simply outstanding in every regard. Probably one of my all-time favourites.

I’ll tag hjartastyrkur, kurkku, starwindsky, morganathewitch and drageblod.
