Tales from Bandcamp: The Mist Bearer by A Diadem of Dead Stars


a0970717836_10Feeling the need to zone out and relax these days?  Then check out this neat instrumental atmospheric folk metal record The Mist Bearer.  Taking cues from the nature themed sections of bands like Wolves in the Throne Room, Soar, and Agalloch this one man band from Vólos, Greece writes ethereal compositions that personify they majesty of the rolling mountains and lush land that surrounds his homeland.  The lack of vocals, bar some hypnotic chanting, really drive the relaxation factor of this record into zen territories.  It also makes me want to finally get around to visiting Greece.

As always, dig in your couch or the back seat of your car and toss this man some change (he’s only asking €0.50), share with your friends, and let us know what you thought.  Enjoy!! Peace Love and Metal!!!
