There are a lot of very talented classically-trained musicians appearing on this very pretty gloom-folk CD from World Serpent.
Some from other bands as notable asAmber Asylum and Rasputina! Backworld's third album combines masterfulsound arrangement, very pretty melodies and brilliant yet melancholysongwriting to bring you a musical delight. The Death in June influenceis apparent in the song structure of tracks like 'Destroying Angel,'but Backworld's sound quality is far superior. The crisp clean12-string guitar and dulcimer blend so well with violin and cello, andthe vocals are mixed at just the right levels. Remarkably consistent inits high quality, and yet each song has its own unique sound andemotion.
