Lanegan, Mark - Dark Mark Does Christmas 2012 (EP)

Shimmering chimes of The Cherry Tree Carol acoustic guitar strings are intertwined with sophisticated vocal musings, opening the Mark Lanegan - Dark Mark Does Christmas 2012 (EP) album with a brooding ballad. The acoustic guitar acquires some echoes of drive, inspirational and rebellious urges come to the forefront of the Down In Yon Forest musical image.
The charm of O Holy Night soft ballad with a hint of a legendary Christmas song enchants with soothing tranquility. The romantic melodism of acoustic guitar passages intertwines in a mesmerizing dance with vocal phrases, as if embodying the We Three Kings epic sagas of the ancient bards.
The vocal monologue reserves the main role of the Coventry Carol composition, then the mesmerizing melodic passages complement the enchanting vocal of the Burn The Flames final composition of this release with a slight hoarseness and sensuality.
