Thanks, what a great review, I am glad you liked the concert.

I expect to be back in Hildesheim in March 2014. With some new songs of course.

  Genticorum: Enregistré Live

"Enregistré Live"

Very nice, thanks so much! I loved the Genticorum review, and it's great to see a lot of our downloads coming up in the download section.

Thank you so much for your support! I'll send these reviews on to the bands!

Best, Devon Leger (HearthPR/Hearth Music)

  Overheard ;-)

R: Hey, we're going to have our label guy in Europe reach out to you and get a cd to you. Thanks for contacting us, let us know when the review is done!

T: Dude, this is bullshit. It's a chincy website that looks like a step down from Wordpress. And I bet this is all they do, convince bands to send them free music so they can write a half-assed review on a website that no one even knows about. We should first ask P. if he's even heard of this site. If not, then it's a waste of CD in my opinion.

R: It looks like it's probably been online since the early 90s, which is a good thing, Why do you care about how the website looks? A review is a review, and if it's available to Google's web-crawlers for indexing, I'm all for it.

T: 'cause I don't like being taken advantage of. This is borderline scam and I don't want to support it. And this kind of thing is very common, "Hi, I have this website where I review things. Send me free shit and I'll review it." I got 3 of these a day working at #*+&.com. It's bullshit. I can start a blogspot site that only my mom and I read. I'll be glad to review our album on that. Send me all your free shit. I'm against it, but only in principle. In reality, it really doesn't matter. Go ahead and send the CD. Also, hotmail has been around since the 90's, that doesn't give it credibility or value. And a shitty website is a good indicator the readership is low.

R: Hey, ignore T., please. His opinions don't reflect how the rest of the band feels. We'll gladly send a CD over and we look forward to the review. Again, thanks for reaching out, and thanks for running FolkWorld; if only there were more passion-driven music magazines out there.. So thank you and keep it up!
