  Evoking  Winds  are  a  band  from  Belarus  that  plays  an  atmospheric  form  of  folk  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2021  album  "Towards  Homestead"  which  will  be  released  in  August.

  Folk  instruments  start  off  the  album  and  also  mixes  in  with  the  heavier  sections  of  the  songs  at  times.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  and  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  are  also  a  very  huge  part  of  the  tracks.

  When  the  music  speeds  up  a  decent  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  while  the  songs  also  add  in  a  good  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.   Death  metal  growls  are  also  added  into  certain  sections  of  the  album  along  with  the  music  also  having  its  symphonic  moments  as  well  as  a  couple  of  the  tracks  also  being  instrumentals.  

  Evoking  Winds  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  folk  metal  and  mixes  it  in  with  more  of  an  atmospheric  and  symphonic  style  of  black  metal  as  well  as  adding  in  a  touch  of  death  metal  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  Fantasy,  Folklore  and  the  Dark  Tales  of  Eastern  Europe.

  In  my  opinion  Evoking  Winds  are  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric  folk  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Oh  Black  Raven,  Leave  Me  Be"  "There  By  The  Adamant  Sea"  and  "Arrow's  Burial".  8  out  of  10. - ADIFFERENTSHADEOFBLACKMETALZINE

Atmospheric metal meets folklore fantasy in music by Evoking Winds. It’s a mixture of stormy blast beats with an epic ambiance and a healthy dose of Eastern Europe’s dark tales.

The band was originally founded by Artyom Prishchepov together with Ivan Sereda in Belarus in 2008 as the way close friends created music together. They composed music for years just for fun and inspiration, and the band has eventually grown: adding Yaroslav Korotkin on vocals and bass, Sergey Shulzhenko (keys and orchestration), Dmitry Sarychau on guitars, and Alexander Cherepanov doing vocals. Today the musicians live around the world: Belarus, USA, China, Russia - and collaborate online. Recently they decided to re-mix and issue all of their music digitally available for everyone for free, featuring James Knoerl on drums and programming. Starting with the very first works they walk the journey again opening new chapters together. This sense of friendship is something everyone really started to value during pandemics and isolation.
