02:05 - Zaphod Not saying I'm having a lot of these in-depth discussion, but other people do, and I love reading those. I find it too difficult to write about music. It's like dancing about math or however the saying goes.
02:04 - !J.O.O.E.! We Sunn O))) fans only communicate via low frequency humming.
02:03 - no one JOOEs so cool he's never even heard of it being said like that
02:02 - Zaphod No one, true, but I enjoy seeing a pointless discussion about a pointless piece of music more than a pointless comment about which album someone just listened to.
Kauan is a relatively young band hailing from the steppes of Russia, and Lumikuuro is their debut. The band is comprised of Anton Belov, who plays every instrument except violin, which is helmed by Lubov Mushnikova. Kauan plays a really innovative type of neofolk/folk-doom, reminiscent of Empyrium, Uaral, and the like. Thankfully this genre is still so vast that Kauan's style is still completely independent of the aforementioned bands.
Don't let the rating fool you, because it's criminally underrated. It's also the only real folk doom album Kauan has made, so if you're into that subgenre then definitely check out this one and NOT their other albums because they are totally different (way more post-rock orientated and honestly quite boring compared to this glorious debut).
