00:59 - mz we need a website like MS for dark ambient, and I don't mean darkambientstorm.net or darkambientarchives.com
00:57 - Erik M. Karlabos, yeah that's true. I said "Russian folk doom bands", by which I simply meant folk doom bands that are Russian (such as Kauan and Raxa), not necessarily "Russian folk".
00:54 - Fearmeister Because Russian folk implies that the folk elements is based on Russian folklore
00:53 - Karlabos That's probably because the Russian folk metal tag doesn't make it clear whether it's "Russian folk" metal or Russian "folk metal". =P Raxa is the second case.
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?
