☼ Seven Pines - The Garden Of Fand / Nympholept / Le Cri / Histoire De L'Ours

Eric Rogers is a familiar name in the neo-folk scene for his recurrent work as trumpet player for Sol Invictus, and other projects like The Orchestra Noir and the ever infamous Gaë Bolg And The Church Of Fand.
For those that have never heard Seven Pines or the work of Gaë Bolg, you are in for a very unique experience. Imagine a Heathen that knows no laws or boundaries. Eric Rogers draws upon all the majesty and bronze of classical and liturgical music but transforms it into a new creature filled with excess and the spirit of Prometheus. Seven Pines continues in the long journey of sanctifying the beliefs and passions of the free heathen heart in the lucid tapestry of music. Seven Pines, like its sister project Gaë Bolg, revitalizes the spirit and infuses the heart with a fire that only a true kindred spirit could muster. Bask in the grandeur of choirs, bellowing vocals, fierce music, neo-classical romanticism and the eternal struggle. Seven Pines does not deliver a new age infused journey filled with sparkling sounds and rushing creeks. Nor does it stay strictly confined to liturgical traditions or Classical music standards. (read: fans of dark ambient industrial will dig it, too) Instead Eric Rogers draws upon these numerous influences and combines them with modern studio manipulations and modern instrumentation. The result is an ancient journey told in new words, sounds and songs. Both fierce and delicate the music is promised to lift your spirit and carry it when darkness falls.
