The Review:

Nox Arcana’s ninth studio release, Grimm Tales, like some of their previous releases is inspired by classic literature. This time around, the folktales of the Brothers Grimm is the subject matter. The musical duo of Joseph Vargo and William Piotrowski again work their magic and create an eerie soundtrack that uses stories from various tales of Grimm. The instruments used are piano, violin, cello, acoustic guitar, glockenspiel, and various wind and percussive instruments. It always amazes me that these two musicians make it sound like an entire orchestra.

Just like the previous releases, ‘Grimm Tales’ the music is a an amazing aural journey that never disappoints me. To make the album have a special significance, the release date was April 30th, 2008, which is one day before Walpurgis (also known as May Day). Just like the rest, I highly recommend this.
