Wyrd Visions // Castlemusic
My Boat b/w Voice of God
(Blue Fog)

From the (blue) fog bath of Michael Deane:
The Bog Lord and Haunting Pixie return to add to each other’s tales, but gently, with contemplative, (blue) fog-bathed, repetitively folk-essed meditations. Side Wyrd finds Colin Bergh reveling in single guitar riffs that cascade from their centre into softly sung Nordic tales. Finger-plucked medieval guitar patterns sit in the back while a four-note bass line twists and repeats. Bergh’s voice brings you further into a trance, struggling to find the beginning and end. When Jennifer Castle joins him, the waves combine and the tide swells, prepping you for Queen-like vocal stabs that bring this to new levels of acoustic-black-metal-folk-prog. Side Castle flips the script with a delicately plucked minor guitar pattern and soulfully smooth, airy vocals examining the powers above. Sporadic toms fill in the emptiness to give a surprisingly lush start to this solo-turned-strange-duet. Bergh re-enters the fold, echoing CM’s questioning of the voice of God. Together, they create an epically surreal musical landscape. Grip Hurr.
