GRAVE BLESSINGS

Unto Ashes
Projekt Records
2005

Michael Laird, Natalia Lincoln, and Mariko comprise the main ingredients of Unto Ashes, an ethereal, dirge-like group that has some very impressive songs and presentations.

The delicate vocals of the two women complement those of Michael and, although overall there isn't a lot of diversity in the music, nevertheless Grave Blessings does offer a penumbric atmosphere of melancholia.

From the folk song styled Four Loom Weaver to the more world-flavoured Fruhling, there are some enchanting musical pieces to which to listen.
