Heather Wasteland are a band from Russia that plays a heretical form of pagan/folk metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Under The Red Wolfish Moon"
Folk instruments along with a medieval atmosphere starts off the ep and after awhile bass guitars make their presence known on the regular and they replace traditional guitars as a lead instrument and the music also incorporates a lot of neo-folk elements which also gives the music more of a modern day feeling.
The songs incorporate the use of 4 5 and 6 string bassists and there is also a brief use of blast beats while all of the songs are instrumental and they also bring in the heaviness of extreme metal into the heavier sections of the tracks.
Heather Wastleland plays a musical style that takes neo folk music and mixes it with pagan metal while keeping everything instrumental to create a musical style of their own and the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording.
In my opinion Heather Wasteland are a very great sounding heretical folk metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Under the Red Wolfish Moon" and "Wicker Man". 9 out of 10.
