Kwadrofonik & Adam StrugRequiem ludowe

Strug’s voice is as mysterious as it is compelling. It’s as if he is a bard chanting, reciting, and singing in mantra-like vocals some ancient religious text, a theme he returns to three times on the album, once at the beginning, once in the middle, and once at the end. Other than that main mystical theme, recited poetry with the help of a frightening chorus of crazed children and a cacophony of percussion and piano are peppered here and there for spice.
