Empyrium - Weiland (2002)

Genre : Dark Folk Doom (Acoustic Album)
Country : Germany

Weiland is the fourth and last album realised by the greats Empyrium. This is an acoustic work with folk and medieval influences. Acoustic guitar forms the base of the sound, while an array of instruments such as cello, piano, mellotron, violins, and bass assist structure and embellish these emotional themes.

This album is for fans of Acoustic works, Folk Doom, or Classical music, also for fans of Ulver's ''Kveldssanger''.

It's a pity they split up. It's definitely the best folk doom ever made. I mean it's got everything: great melancholic atmosphere, perfect vocals, wonderful instrumental parts and a genius behind all these. I'd do (almost) anything to see Markus back with Empyrium.
