Furor Gallico: The Songs From The Earth

Furor Gallico aren't a small group as this Italian band actually have eight members, which is due to the array of instruments that is incorporated into that music along with their death metal style vocals. As Furor Gallico's sound includes the violin, Celtic harp, tin whistles, bouzouki and the bagpipes. They do have quite a strong presence in their songs and first taste of those traditional instruments is on the title track "The Song Of The Earth", and its peaceful introduction before the metal side of Furor Gallico comes into play.

The Songs From The Earth is the kind of album where I went in with high expectations. Was this the same "much celebrated folk metal band" that had a "critically acclaimed self-titled debut album" that I was reading about ? Well I'm not familiar with Furor Gallico's debut but from my experience listening to The Songs From The Earth that first album must have been something else, if these claims are indeed true. Despite this The Songs From The Earth is still quite a mostly enjoyable recording with ok production. "Squass" is my picks of those on The Songs From The Earth even though the clean vocals aren't in English the music is so enthralling, with some cool added touches like jazz input from the drums and bass this really is a fun tune.
