Nest - Trail of the Unwary (2007)

Ethereal Finnish neofolk. Lush keyboards and cavernous percussion create a dark, atmospheric backdrop for the shimmering sound of the kantele, a traditional Finnish stringed instrument on which Nest's songs, I gather, are written. Vocals rarely appear, and are limited to throaty whispers.

Track listing:
1. Moonbow
2. Claw and Fang
3. Kontio
4. Hunt
5. The Mire
6. The Turning of the Tides
7. Across the Waters
