Poland, 2008, Polish folk
Żywiołak – Nowa ex-tradycja: I love music that has a mythological bent, especially when such mystical content is supported by traditional folk music. Add in a touch of folk metal, and you have a recipe for perfection. The counterpoint of the high female vocals to the moaning fiddles and tribal drumming complete the foreboding atmosphere of this album. Anyway, what is it with Polish women and their maniacal laughing? I love it.
