Blackmore's Night - Dancer And The Moon

Blackmore's Night
Dancer And The Moon

Ritchie Blackmore needs no introduction, and if you don’t know him try reading about the history of modern music under the name DEEP PURPLE. Since 1997, after leaving RAINBOW, Blackmore and his wife Candice Night decided to make a project that mix Renaissance Music and Traditional British Folk music with Rock. The project had a great success in renaissance festivals, and the music was well received even between DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW Fans alike.

“Dancer And The Moon” Is the band 8th studio album and I must admit I really enjoy it. the record is mostly acoustic and has three covers and three instrumentals including “Carry on…Jon” Blackmore’s Tribute and goodbye piece to the late Jon Lord. The music is just magical and nice to listen to, the guitars sound amazing and Candice’s voice is just like listening to an angel sing, even though the vocal Production is not great. The instrumental pieces are just pure genius and reminded me a lot of Dio era RAINBOW.

This is not a Metal record, it’s a world music record with lots of elements and one great composer (Mr. Blackmore of course ), and if you like classical, Renaissance and Celtic music and can picture it with Blackmore’s guitars all around it and one hell of a female vocalist, you’ll love this one. Overall, this is a great album. In my opinion too many covers and besides the guitars the overall production is not great but after all in the Renaissance there were no recording studios.
