00:51 - Erik M. How am I confusing average with generic? Karlabos used the word "average", so I replied to that. Also, Raxa is folky as hell. What does it matter if the themes are about Central America?
00:46 - Erik M. Fair enough. I have the opposite since this sort of folk doom metal really clicks with me, as it's highly atmospheric/ambient. Its themes are also somehow appealing and refreshing. I like pretty much everything, really.
00:44 - Fearmeister Also, I think Erik is confusing 'average' with 'generic' :P
00:44 - Karlabos Yeah, the hispano folk elements were what I was looking for when I discovered it, but somehow didn't like it very much. I did like another band (russian btw) named Tenochtitlan thought... But you probably already know it
00:43 - Fearmeister I wouldn't call Raxa Russian folk since the subject matter is Central America :P
00:42 - Karlabos Well, original it surely is. By rating average I just mean that it clicked on me on the same level an average metal album would, or something like that.
00:40 - Erik M. Raxa reminds me of Kauan at times. Both are Russian. Hmmm, have to check out more Russian folk doom bands I guess, haha. Seriously, give Raxa a 2nd chance. I love that sound. The folk elements especially.
