hybryds/pal-yasnaa split review

album rating: 3

submitted by alan on 19-Jun-2000
Packaged in a simplistic textural hand-made paper sleeve this release compiles live material from shows in 1996 in WeiBsenburg (Germany), St. Niklaas (Belgium) and the Theatre of Magic. This release provides some understanding of hybryds stage presence.

The quality of these recorded performances is actually very clean and captures the sound approaching original studio versions. Such favorites as "Keryneia", "Ruach", and "Crom Cruach" confirm this and are as strong as the originals keeping with the same ritualistic intention, if not pushing further on these ideals, carrying on the mystical and magical atmosphere with hollow primitive percussive aspects, moving soundscapes and forbidden textures of the nameless and forgotten ones.

Songs such as "Wailing" display the awesome power of Yasnaa's voice and the instrumentation that surrounds her. A beautiful usage of traditional woodwind instruments and vivid sound structures are displayed on songs such as "Sunyate" and "Hamyanna." This album is a nice reflection of the band's magic that takes place on stage.
