NSP 174 :  Belenos -  A5 Digi-CD/CD

Release date CD & T-Shirt: September 20th, 2019





Three years after "Kornog", an album dealing with the water element of Breton's sea legends, "Argoat", which means something like "land of the woods", continues where its predecessor left off and focuses on the earth element - mainly local mystic forests, wild animals and Celtic gods. It is again sung in Breton. The final track the album, "Arvestal", is a metal interpretation of a John Barry song (The Persuaders - 1971).

Argoat was recorded between November 2018 and May 2019, as usual in an old school home studio.

The first pressing of the CD comes as collectors edition in A5-Digipack, limited to 500 copies.
Also available as regular version in jewel case. Both come with 12-page booklet incl. English translations of the lyrics.

Reviews:

"BELENOS has been at it a long time, and not being familiar with them, I have no basis for comparison. I enjoyed the album however. They have created a niche for themselves while still retaining their Black Metal roots from the 1990ís. They incorporate different elements into the mix as well, like clean vocals and some melody. The harrowing moments are totally harrowing, but the clean and ambient moments are like a fresh breath of air. Well done!"
