Narsilion: “El Retorn a la Infantesa” (2008)

From Barcelona, Spain come Tolkien gateway drug Narsilion. Their particular brand of neoclassical ambient folk has been labeled Darkwave by whatever entity is responsible for the nomenclature of music’s multitudinous classifications.

narseEthereal and medieval-sounding, Narsilion may appeal to fans of Enya, Loreena McKennit or possibly Blackmore’s Night. However their music generally lacks Enya’s cohesive, populist songwriting, McKennit’s traditional rootedness or Ritchie Blackmore’s guitar wizardry.

Still, there is wizardry here of another sort. If you have a penchant for songs about elves, unicorns and autumnal equinoxes, pour a flagon of mead, sit back and enjoy the musical reverie.
