Volksweerbaarheid - Voorwarts
Lisse ! - Demo CD-R - 8 tracks - 2002
This is the first demo from the Dutch dark folk project Volksweerbaarheid. It is a live recording
regrouping eight songs recorded during two concerts given in their homeland during the month of October
2002. Volksweerbaarheid play short and direct songs based on strong military percussions, acoustic
guitars and a stern male voice to which are added a few samples and some discreet keyboards. Although
these are live recordings, one can sense the stark beauty of songs such as 'Bunker des aanstoots',
'Een Duits dienstmeisje' and 'Geen defaitisme!'. One can only be impressed by the bands apparent ease
on stage and the overall intensity of their live performances. Call me old fashioned, but a band capable
of such a good live performance is definitely worth following and I'm impatient to hear a studio release
from this promising formation. In the meanwhile, I'll just press replay...
An impressive debut that is well worth checking out.
