Guest review by
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.

Great piece of art

I wholeheartedly agree. What an amazing album.

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).

Highlight of the album.


So we both agree it's an excellent album, but not on the highlights of the album. My two favourite songs on the album are easily these:

By the way, now I also know how to put Youtube links in comments here on MS.
