Lupercalia - Florilegium
Ambient, Goth I feel a bit unsure about this; I think it's mostly because I don't know anything about this kind of music (opera and baroque). This is anyhow what I would describe Lupercalia as. But I think the music is interesting with its gothic inspired opera. The music is based upon Riccardo Prencipes classical guitar and the violinist Pierangelo Fevolas play and it's completed with a female opera voice.

This is not the first release from Lupercalia, before this they have released 'Soehrimnir' and a demo tape named 'Les Nuits des Samain'. They have also been on a sampler named 'Intimations of Immortality Vol.5.'

After having listened through this record a few times I think it's quite good. I've also managed to find some favourites among the 13 tracks. "Kundalini", "Aegypto Ad Sicilim" and "Pilgrims Chant" is really good. The last one is my absolute favourite since it's more medieval inspired than the other ones. I can see similarities with Gor and Wisby Waganter for example which is music I like.

As I mentioned earlier this is undiscovered terrain for me, but one day has to be the first and I think I can try to find more music like this since I like it. I give Lupercalia the grade of seven.
