Prag 83 - Énouement (2019)


We find ourselves again reviewing a magical 7” EP that came our way through Nordvis Produktion. Prag 83 is a German entity that delivers enigmatic Folk music in the vein of Hexvessel, King Dude, Antimatter, etc. with some mid-career Katatonia influences.

The EP starts with “Circle”, a very somber song that reminds us of Antimatter with a lounge feeling. The guitars are quite enigmatic and the overall mood quite mellow and a bit creepy, in a good way. This is the type of dark Folk music we truly enjoy, particularly when it is nicely executed and simple, this is, there are not too many over the top elements added just for the sake of being more ‘authentic’.

Closing with “Before the Night Descends”, we get a more upbeat track with nice percussions and interesting lyrics. In contrast to the first song, this is track is a bit more typical of the genre and enjoyable with a cigarette on a cold night. Overall, “Énouement” shows the great potential behind Prag 83 and will make you explore the band’s older releases for your musical fix.
