Gjallarhorn :


Gjallarhorn: Sjofn album cover
Gjallarhorn
are a Finnish World Music group whose second record, Sjofn, I've been playing non-stop for over a week. Like Hedningarna, they keep a nice Shamanistic pulse going over which to sing and play those odd Finnish harmonies. They are a little more New Age oriented than Hedningarna, but in a good way: they create a soothing atmosphere which at any time
can start getting under your skin, usually just before it is interrupted by a Banshee shriek or a subtle but menacing mood change. (Gjallarhorn have a website, but it's not very good so I've made the link go to Amazon.com's information page about the album. )
