Heart Song Warrior - Seed Of Life (Review)

Heart Song Warrior – Seed Of Life

A great combination of psychedelic atmospheres and tuneful acoustic melodies.

Seed Of Life is a brand new studio album from Heart Song Warrior, a driven music project hailing from Montreal, Canada. The act is the brainchild of eclectic multi-instrumentalist Julien Valiquette, who has been active ever since the mid 80s.

His music is a very special blend of psychedelic folk and rock, which makes me think of artists as diverse as Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd, but with a stronger focus on the depth and feel of amazing acoustic instruments and percussion. His most recent studio effort, “Seed Of Life”, fully reflects his tone and vision, throughout the span of 10 exciting tracks. Opening number “Shasta” begins with an intricate and hypnotic layering of percussive elements and guitar tones, while following track, “Into The Mirror” offers a slower, more intimate vibe.

There are many exciting moments on this release, but I would have to say that “You Soul Knows” certainly stands out as one of the most interesting and notable songs on this release. I really love the way the background synths interact with the guitar, and more importantly, Julien’s voice is absolutely outstanding, almost making me think of James LaBrie from Dream Theatre!

All in all, this is a really interesting project with a diverse and broad creative scope. The artist’s musicality is really intriguing and he is clearly extremely talented!
