Sonne Hagal: More than echoes
Fronte Nordico is that kind of ultra-exclusive label that makes any slightly nerdy (is there any other kind?) neofolk enthusiast drool worse than the average Basset hound. And being a Basset hound with an enthusism for neofolk, as well as being slightly nerdy, you can just imagine how much Fronte Nordicos release of a live record with Sonne Hagal makes Lord Bassington-Bassington drool.
Only Echoes Remain, a documentation of a concert in Moscow is a double album so lavish and artfully executed that one has to pinch oneself.
But not only is it a wonder to look at, it's swell to listen to, too!
As Lord Bassington-Bassington has a well-documented weakness for specialist record labels, we here at the Chronicles look forward to following their coming releases.
