Lili Refrain – Kawax (lp 180gr)
Kawax is the third studio release from roman guitar goddess Lili Refrain, a cathartic experience which celebrates departures, goodbyes and rebirths on the altar of an imaginary totemic demon – Kawax. The making of this album took more than a year of studio sessions before it was molded into its ultimate shape. The sound of this record takes the artist’s musical research one step further, offering a fine blend of the distinctive elements of her musical language: the epic guitar riffing inspired by both classical music and 90’s metal, the rhythmic textures stacked layer upon layer, the use of her vocal extension to create soundscapes reminding of Dead can Dance’s most rarefied moments – all of these influences and stylistic features are still highly recognizable, yet mixed and reshaped into a complex and personal language. Kawax is a mature and fully accomplished work where heavy metal, psychedelia, blues and avantgarde research converge into an innovative and vital sonic experience.
