Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Under a Beltane Sun (MP3 Download)
I have just discovered Damh's music and and just so happy that our paths have crossed!
It seems I was waiting - longing - for exactly this music without even realising it.
Original, quality songs with a pagan lyric. Sublime guitar plating (and other stringed instrumentation - bouzouki?).
My favourites are 'We are the sons and daughters of Robin Hood' which reveals a protest root and ecological ethic to the Bard which completely resonated and refreshed me when I heard it. Then there is the wonderful track; 'Under a Beltane Sun' which feels personal to me that it's as if it was written for me! Being born on May 1st this song makes the hairs on my arms stand-on-end when I listen to it.
Those two tracks are by no means exceptions though, as there is not a single duff track on the album.
I was so blown with this CD that I immediately bought all his back catalogue - knowing instantly that I had found a new muse of immense value and it turns out I was absolutely right!
BTW: Check out Wojtek Godzisz self titled album for as authentic Pagan lyrics but a with a more rocky & electric sound, a nice juxtaposition to Damh. Woj' is another recent discovery of mine, he has videos of the tracks from the album on you tube entitled 'Beltane' & 'The Moon & the Yew Tree' - GREAT!.
