01:25 - LuciferOfGayness Forum is more or less dead in relation to experimental stuff since Jooe left
01:24 - MetalDoomMaster As half assed as Herzebeth's reviews were I highly enjoyed them.
01:20 - Bad English Nervel lol he wrote good reviews, but he was part of smurf metal gang .... and same time Der Roz was best reviewer
01:16 - Apothecary If I could bring one person back it'd be that Lucas guy who used to review on here a while ago. Always covered a bunch of really obscure, batshit bands and his reviews were pretty hilarious too. Partly inspired me, actually
Kauan is a relatively young band hailing from the steppes of Russia, and Lumikuuro is their debut. The band is comprised of Anton Belov, who plays every instrument except violin, which is helmed by Lubov Mushnikova. Kauan plays a really innovative type of neofolk/folk-doom, reminiscent of Empyrium, Uaral, and the like. Thankfully this genre is still so vast that Kauan's style is still completely independent of the aforementioned bands.
Don't let the rating fool you, because it's criminally underrated. It's also the only real folk doom album Kauan has made, so if you're into that subgenre then definitely check out this one and NOT their other albums because they are totally different (way more post-rock orientated and honestly quite boring compared to this glorious debut).
