GaŽ Bolg and the Church of Fand - La Ballade de l'Ankou

  | CD

GaŽ Bolg and the Church of Fand-La Ballade de l'Ankou Gaë Bolg, a project by Eric Roger (Sol Invictus, L'Orchestre Noir, Skald, Seven Pines), has in very short time become one of the most collectable projects in the neo-folk / orchestral scene and all releases are almost impossibly to be found.

After the two first limited (and long deleted) albums 'John Barleycorn must die' and 'Tintagel', and one album under the name SEVEN PINES ('The Garden of Fand'), Gaë Bolg, accompanied by his feasting monks, returns with his eagerly expected new album 'La Ballade de l'Ankou'.

Eight tracks, eight medieval texts that render tribute to l'Ankou, a figure from ancient Britanny myhtologic tradition, that protects from the dead. 'La Ballade de l'Ankou' is a collection of triumphant marches ('La veuve'), orchestral and lyric folk ('Testament', 'La meute'), medieval peplum ('Prière pour le roi mort', 'Morz trai ton cor'), forgotten rituals ('Danse') and slow symphonic processions ('Cérémonial', 'Les adieux du lépreux') where walls of trumpets, choirs and percussion support heroic and pompous vocals in an irresistible way. Welcome to the Kingdom of Fand !!!
