Belborn * 3 (cd 2001 world serpent)

It has been a while since Belborn released their first untitled cd. That cd contains simple and charming neo-folk with wave- influences. When I put on “3” for the first time, I feared that Holger and Susan put more stress on the wave/gothic influences. The synths are definately more prominent this time and the music is less folky. After a few listenings I must say that “3” is definately still Belborn, but they definately moved a bit more towards a gothic/wave sound. The music is still quite simple, the lyrics are again sung in German but translated in English in the booklet and the lyrics and package again are quite folkish.
I think “3” is not too bad, but I like the debut better.
