Vouna – Vouna

Although it has been presented as a work of funeral matrix, the self-titled full length of Vouna is actually something more catalogued as atmospheric black doom; however, it is worth talking about it briefly because it is an inspired work, full of pathos and well performed and sung by the talented Yianna Bekris, who did it all by herself with the help of the Weaver brothers (Wolves In The Throne Room) during the recording. The rhythms are in any case slow and not too far from the funeral times, even if the rarefaction of the sound and its quiet pace with folk nuances brings us back to Cascadian territories: a work not to be missed.
