Empyrium, Where At Night The Wood Grouse Plays

Germany, 1999.

Empyrium were a german Doom/Neofolk collective that spaned the years of 1994 through 2003. This is their third album, a fully acoustic and minimalist approach to the doom genre, played only through nylon guitars, vocals and a sporadic use of flute and some martial-like drums. Fans of Ulver´s "Kveldssanger" will eat this up.
