Release: 27 May 2013
True, I have to admit there’s is a lot of crap in folk-metal, and a lot bands sound like each other. But honestly in which music-genre isn’t this the case. But every now and then a great musician stands up and invents a whole new kind of music. Again I must be honest, this isn’t the case with Boisson Divine, it’s true folk-metal, that’s for sure. But there are great musicians who are able to create their very own sound and style withing such a genre. And while we always want to stay honest: Baptiste and Adrian are these kind of musicians.
Listening to Boisson Divine, you will never think you’re listening to another band. They have taken the nice elements of their own region, Gascogne in the French Pyrenees. The mix with heavy metal, might be a ‘regular’ one, but the brew which comes out of this vessels is unique. It’s happy full of joy, caused by the influence of their nice wine probably, it’s has the power of the harsh landscape, where the survival of the fittest is daily life. With the beauty of the awesome landscape of their homeland. And it’s positive and proud, like the people of these region.
And there’s something else in which they show, they like to do it their own way. Of course they sing about their land, their heroes and so on, but they sing about their sport as well: Rugby.
Put these things together and you get a very nice album. No grim and dark sinister folk-metal, but the fresh wind blows it all in the open. Clean guitars, clean singing, very nice and fresh to listen to. Hope they can conquer all their problems and release another great album in the future.
When you like something different, something cleans with nice authentic instruments, buy this one at their bandcamp.
