CD Reviews

SaturnianRings | 11/29/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I heard this album shortly after it was first released in 1997, and it changed my musical life. All of the instruments on this album are acoustic and pre-date the industrial age. The tracks are vaguely Arabic, North-African, and medieval European. Some listeners may find much of this material to be dark and ponderous. I would say this music arises from simpler world-views of antiquity. Some of these tracks strike me as tribal ceremony, others are melancholy and trace-inducing. This album was my gateway to genuine world-music: Anouar Brahem, Hamza el Din, Ghazal, and The Master Musicians of Jajouka. Here I also hear shades of David Hykes. If you want to start with the most accessible tracks, I think they would be "Father of the Flower" and "Ceilidh For The Sallow Ground".

For context, I enjoy vaguely similar but more contemporary approaches: Delerium/Intermix, Single Gun Theory, Vas, Jamshied Sharifi, and many others too numerous and disparate to mention here. I have 18,000 tracks in my personal collection.

The group's only other album is Ornamentation, which is similar."
Very excellent album

"If you're thinking about checking this album out, just buy it. It's definitely worth it. I'm not entirely sure what to say about this album except for that that each track is great, and it's an overall great album. I first heard about the band because the members used to be in the band diSEMBOWELMENT, and they both have very different sounds from each other... but both very good sounds."
Breathtaking music

"I have been enchanted by Trial of the Bow music since many years and I am still waiting for their new album. For all fans of DCD, Vas, Stellamara...."
