Conny Ochs is a musician from Germany that plays a doom influenced form of neo folk music and this is a review of his 2013 album "Black Happy" which will be released by Exile On Mainstream.
Acoustic guitars range from slow to mid paced neo folk riffs that use finger picking and full chords with some doom influences and d ark sounding melodies to create a sound of their own along with a brief use of distortion, while the vocals are all clean singing folk rock vocals, as for the harmonicas when they are utilized they bring a blues influence to the recording.
Lyrics cover darkness and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, dark and professional sound with the vocals, harmonicas and guitars having a great sound to them and they are the only musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Conny Ochs is a very great sounding neo folk rock musician and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "No Sleep Tonight" "Die In Your Arms" "Trust In Love" and "Phantom Pain". RECOMMENDED BUY.
