The music project was launched in 2017 by musician and singer Michal ‘Neithan’ Kielbasa. In 2018 ‘Neithan’ invited few friends as guest musicians to help him in recording his first full length GRAVE of LOVE album. The musical works on debut album finally ended in 2020.
GRAVE of LOVE sound is multi-layered NEOFOLK; more wolfish, untamed and powerful than would be expected in this genre.
Times are getting harder and with them the tones. With fresh strength and new virtuosity it goes against unstoppable decay and twilight.
There are strong effects with cursive passages – in the interplay of acoustic guitar, rough riffs, and distorted bass lines. Chant is clear, from forgiving to admonishing, accusing … like the preacher from the holy mountain.
In between wind chimes and sophisticated percussions, threatening soundscapes or samples. In contrast, there is the harmonic piano playing as well as full-warm, but combative-dynamic horn passages. Subliminally, the rhythm of the percussion accompanies the hopelessness of this fading epoch.
