Title: Horus Calling
Format: CDS (CD Single)
Label: HR! S.P.Q.R. (@)
Rated: *****
Limited to only 31 copies, HORUS CALLING is a new CD single by The Green Man. The single brings to the lovers of the duo an original song which gives the title to the release and "Gently Johnny", a cover of a traditional folk song (track used also on the movie "The wicker man"). As for the previous releases the lyrics and themes of The Green Man are deeply influenced by the works of Aleister Crowley and "Horus calling" is inspired by what the magus wrote during his stay in Cairo (when he had the vision of his guardian angel Aiwass whom dictated "The Book of the Law", the central sacred text of Thelema, to him on April 8, 9, and 10th in 1904.). On this single Eliahu Giudice and Marco Garegnani succeeded into mix neo-folk and rock intuitions into a charming song which in 7 minutes brings in many moods, mixing acoustic guitar arpeggios and granitic electric guitar riffs helped by tribal drumming. "Gently Johnny" is a beautiful song which brings with it smells of moorland along with mysterious pagan atmospheres well described into the original version of "The wicker man" (movie based on David Pinner's 1967 novel "The Ritual", focused on a religion based on Celtic paganism practised by the inhabitants of the island of Summerisle). In my humble opinion this is the best The Green Man release. Check it out...
