Since we stumbled across Boscars, the first video released for Kanseil‘s Cant del Corlo, our lookout kinda had his radar in full motion to capture the EP once it dropped. And this single already intrigued us with its quiet and quietly professional airs.

Kanseil already got coverage for two studio records Doin Earde and Fulische on RMR. Both – of course – are fully plugged and more in a Folk Metal environment than anything else.

Katja Moslehner left the Medieval and Pagan Folk masters Faun in 2017. If you remember, the lady joined in 2013, just in time for the release of the much-contested record Von den Elben.

Her era led trough those turbulent times that spawned the follow-on records Luna and Midgard. Albums that – together with the aforementioned Von den Elben – enjoyed (and still enjoy) an undeniable and pretty fulminant success. And this at a time where Faun faced significant attacks from an increasingly virulent fan base.
