Bloody Woods - "The Lament" [2016]

Artist: Bloody Woods
Title: The Lament
Genre: Neofolk
Country: China
Year: 2016

Track List:
  1. Intro: Nuosu Epopoeia
  2. Souther
  3. The Lament
  4. A Sigh for Autumn
  5. A Cappella
  6. Outro: Fortress Forlorn
"Over the years Neo-folk has taken upon itself the imprint of various cultures encounter through its journeying. We present to you the Lament, to communicate our own experience of sorrow and beauty, death and ruin on this ravaged land, coated with nordic tradition, to tell of the melancholy of oriental instruments, of its power to set one free"
A follow-up to "Romanzen", "The Lament" is less of a "European" and more of a "Chinese" album (and if I'm not mistaken, it's the first Bloody Woods album to feature lyrics in Chinese), with less metal and more ambient influences. Honestly it's less impressive than the other albums by Bloody Woods, but by no means bad. Really wonder what their next album would sound like (if there will be any):
