Review: El Cuervo de Poe – Vox Corvus [2008]

amazon-el-cuervoMexican gothic folk troupe El Cuervo de Poe mesh a few distinct styles together to form the music heard on this septet’s 11-track release VOX CORVUS. With two violinists in tow creating a multitude of sounds ranging from sullen to eerie and sung completely in Spanish in a baroque style by a alto female singer, the uniqueness of this group is unquestionable, as they intertwine orchestral compositions with a Lacuna Coil-esque twist on cuts like “Paredes Blancos” and “Claroscuro” while opting to take the piano ballad route with some traditional Mexican music strewn in on “Tormenta.” If you are searching for some different elements in your Goth rock, El Cuervo de Poe is a band you should definitely get to know. www.renaissancerecordsus.comMike SOS
