Rdyany Vran Dawn – ‘Rdyany Vran Dawn’ (2013)
Release: April 2013
From the wild Siberia Rdyany Vran Dawn brings you the second album of this one man band. A proud album, from a proud man. To be honest, who has what it takes to become a one man pagan folk metal band AND be successful? Well? You just have to respect him for that fact alone. You have to listen to him.
The album contains good balanced mixture of folk and metal, some songs easy, and some more slightly rough. There’s a song for everyone. I must say, personally, I love the bass voice. But as already said in other reviews: I’m a sucker for dark voices.
There’s a down-to-earth tone within the voice. With a measured tone of voice he sings his songs, as there is importance within his words. And there is, for he took the patience to create this album to sing you all this. Listen and respect.
What I like most is the usage of (historical) musical instruments specific for the Slavic region. It gives the feeling as though the listener is actually there, in the land where this musical story enfolds. It blends great with the metal and singing.
The last I say, and that’s a bit of a minor, is that some of the songs are terribly long. I know, it’s part of the style, but a song duration over 11 minutes requires patience. Plus I’m an impatient woman. This album gives me enough exercise to practice patience, a virtue everyone should master.
