Swedish folk band Vasen mix the haunting, lonely sounds of their country’s traditional music with a modern sense of humor and a strong melodic assurance. Gront maintains the high levels of energy and musicianship the band has established on its previous recordings, while taking more unorthodox approaches to their arrangements. Traditionalists might find their music a bit watered-down in terms of faithful authenticity, but most others will find it enjoyable and accessible.

The strident, raw sound of Nordic fiddling, accompanied by nyckelharpa, guitar, mandolin, bouzouki and world percussion, takes a stream-of-consciousness turn in this fascinating music, characterized by original textures, irregular tempos and meandering melodies. Vasen is fiddler Mikael Marin, guitarist Roger Tallroth, nyckelharpist Olov Johansson, and percussionist Andre Ferrari. "Here you’ll find the full breadth of Vasen’s moods," proclaims the cover of this album, "from dark and sparse to sublime and ecstatic," and that is a good description of the cuts therein. Some, like "Ploska", are good, foot-stomping fiddle tunes (though I wouldn’t hazard trying to make up dance steps to the ever shifting meters!), while others, like "Vantans Valse", are gently reflective. "JTT" and "Ekorrn" are jazzy and playful. "Stappen" and "Nacken" are mysteriously atmospheric, like foreboding soundtrack music. I’m not sure what modern or ancient mythological figure inspired the title of this CD, but judging from the track "Grontman", he sounds like a rambunctious giant with penchant for partying in metal scrapyards. Check out this intriguing album and let your imagination out to play! Try also Vasen’s prior release, the light-hearted "Whirled", and the work of Hardanger fiddler Annbjorg Lien.
