Can we have a neofolk thread? I never see them on here. I've been listening to a lot of pic related lately, and it's pretty fucking great. Any other recent neofolk releases I should be checking out
>>
Only Current 93 album I've heard, but it's pretty fuckin great, it even has a few tracks with Nick Cave.
Do you like Death In June?
Nada! and What Ends When The Symbols Shatter? are stellar.

this genre gets really old really quickly for me. Di6 and Current 93 are some of my favorite artists of all time, though. I've been listening to this a good bit lately.
>>
>>61766586
Same here. Snow Bunker Tapes is a close second though.
>>
do yourself a favour and check out Death in Rome, their a pretty underground neofolk band that does covers of pop songs. Their discog is pretty small up till now but they have some real gems

I'll never get if DI6 is actually Nazi or it's just the imagery. I know Douglas Pearce is homosexual and performed with Jews and in Israel once, but some of his lyrics just make me think if it's all real or just a part of a leftist ruse.

Huh, that's a coincidence, because I just started trying to explore neofolk today. I'm currently listening to In Gowan Ring - The Serpent and the Dove, anyone here listened to that? It's quite peaceful, especially considering that I was listening to Black Metal before it. Recommend me albums, I'm open to all suggestions.

Well all of the classics, DI6, Current 93 on the martial/industrial side. but on the more folky side you have Empyrium and Ulver's second albums. Nest's Woodsmoke, Tenhi discogarphy is awesome too.

well plenty of bands deal with horror imagery and themes such as holocaust, torture, all bleak things about human nature. so i guess i dont really see why death in june would be different. the ruse element is that they dont explain why they do what they do. it would water down the effect i guess. but at the same time i do get why people are annoyed especially if they think nazi stuff glorifies them. maybe it does to some extent. anyway i cant resist the appeal of the music of death in june and im not a nazi
>>
>>61766205

Aw man, I'm listening to this right now, and it references a confederate soldier, with everyone saying neofolk attracts racists, I really hope this isn't some nazi shit, because I'm really loving this album, not that I won't listen to it if it is, but it'd be nice if the artists weren't brainless racists, can anyone confirm?
>>
>>61773665

I don't think it has anything to with white power, but Josef Maria Klumb, the person behind most of Von Thronstahl's music, does seem to be in favor of authoritarianism. As with many neofolk or martial industrial artists it isn't always clear what of it is just imagery and what is genuine. Their website does contain quite a lot of writings on politics, though.

Also, this album is really good.

They tend to like right-wing politics, but that reall doesn't mean they are racists.
>>
>>61773851

The Frolic had a verse or two about torching "red and black ants". Again, I'm not gonna let the band's ideology stop me from enjoying their stuff, just as I can enjoy bands with Christian/Satanic themes. It's just good to know what the band is all about.
>>
u know those people who collect nazi items and war memorabilia and know all about war history? thats neofolk. except for current 93 which is neofolk with some new age stuff
>>
There's some interesting alegedly ''right-wing'' ambient/neofolk from my hometown Madrid, people here might like it :)

This is a nice cover of the Spanish Blue Division:

LMFAO none of those bands are in anyway racist.

I'll throw in a rec for The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud. They're not really neofolk but they were distributed by World Serpent and grouped in with those bands in the 90's. Basically medieval/martial-industrial shit with intense female vocals.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NjlpLjJYA3I

I guess as a disclaimer, this is one of the few acts I can think of where a member was very vocal about her right-wing views.

How is it white guilt at all? If anything, it's mourning the loss of Rhodesia and its potential.

Current 93 actually comes off as fairly liberal these days, and while the group has certainly dabbled in its fair share of problematic imagery/sketchy collaborators, it's never really come off as espousing racist ideas to me. The liner notes for Thunder Perfect Mind also dedicate the song "Hitler as Kalki" (which deals with the idea of Hitler as an incarnation of a Hindu god bringing the apocalypse) "To my (David Tibet's) father, who fought Hitler."

I personally avoid Death in June because they go a bit further towards tacky-at-best Nazi fetishism, and a good number of bands in the genre are out and out fascists. There are plenty of non-horrifying groups too, though; I've not heard anything bad about Rome except from the extreme fringe of frothing anti-neo-folkers.

One of the things that really complicates trying to avoid fascist bands is that a lot of the information on the scene funnels back to one guy who is an ex-fascist himself, who wrote an intro to a Sol Invictus related book and now is hellbent on revealing "the truth" about basically every band in the genre. It really smacks of some strange old grudge, since it's a guy who was way into fascism going after other folks who were perhaps into fascism but now say they're appalled by it and calling them liars.

In general, I look into each band more closely than I might for other genres, and I avoid anyone overtly fascist and anyone who's way into Nazi fetishism and isn't overtly anti-fascist. If the bands say they're against fascism, though, and there's not some solid evidence condemning them (and the ridiculous worked-with-someone-who-worked-with-someone thing doesn't count, or else we have to boycott Nick Cave, Bonnie Prince Billy, and Antony and the Johnsons as fascists), I tend to give them the benefit of the doubt.
>>
>>61781709
None of the Momus stuff I've heard is much like neo-folk. He's maybe closer to filk if he lands anywhere on the folk axis. Neo-folk tends to present itself with a much straighter face, though it certainly doesn't always take itself particularly seriously.
