MUSK OX - First Part Of Video Series "The Making Of Woodfall" Released

Woodfall, the latest full-length from Canadian neofolk trio, Musk Ox, was self-released earlier this year. Nearly six years in the making, Woodfall is an hour-long, five-part progressive chamber folk epic captured via classical guitar, cello, and violin. Inspired by Canada's brilliant landscapes, Musk Ox meshes the acoustic textures of neofolk with the expansiveness of post rock, the intricacies of progressive rock, and the emotional weight of metal into a forlorn sonic passage through natural realms where darkness and light, substance and void, sorrow and joy, exist as a single entity. In commemoration of its release the band revealed the first of a "making-of" series which brings Musk Ox fans up-close-and personal with the band during the Woodfall recording sessions. In part one, band founder/guitarist Nathanaël Larochette discusses Woodfall's inspiration and concept. In related news, Musk Ox recently released the official Woodfall guitar book. Every note, including which fingers Larochette uses to pluck them, has been meticulously put to paper and beautifully packaged and bound thanks to the support and guidance of Luke Hoskin (Protest The Hero, Sheet Happens Publishing). A must-have for anyone interested in exploring the guitar stylings found on Woodfall. Albums and books are available for order through the Musk Ox Bandcamp page and official website. Watch below the first part of the making of Woodfall, the second one will follow in December. Link
