Jozef van Wissem’s new single, “Cold Corpse” is for fans of the deep, the mystical, and the different. Wissem, an acclaimed lute player draws inspiration from the religious sounds of the late 1200s. The ancient sounds mixed with folk influence make for an overall coherent sound reminiscent of something you may find on a fantasy movie soundtrack. The lyrics of this song are simple and repetitive, driving home it’s message, likely prefacing the beginnings of this in depth concept album. While this style of music is a place uncharted for many, Wissem’s new single, “Cold Corpse” is an excellent choice for folk and general music fans to listen outside the box.
