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.
