Staff review by
This review is really special for me because Hantaoma comes from my lands in the South of France. Near Spain and above all near of the Pyrenees (our mountains) this land is a land of nature and legends. The band plays nice Folk Metal with a really "weird" particularity. For all those who don't know this part of our country, they sing in "Occitan", an old language that was spoken by a lot of people in the South of France before it was forbidden at the beginning of the 20th century… However, this mix of French and Spanish (this is really reductive and I'm sorry for that but the ones who aren't really familiar with the language will at least understand, a bit, how it can sound) is not dead yet, like the culture and the legends that were so popular in the past. With Stille Volk and now Hantaoma, Patrick Lafforgue and Patrice Roques give to this beautiful language like to the Pyrenean pantheon and its legends a new life, thank a lot guys…
