"All told, Décembre au Mont des Oliviers is a “neofolk” album that, in many ways, redefines what “neofolk” is — for me, anyway — and overall, it’s a welcome redefinition at that." Jason Morehead, opus.fm

"Now, the great thing about this new Lonsai Maikov album, in my mind, is that it fits neatly into this continuum, taking up the glorious mix of experimental, daring, and smooth lyricism that define the masterworks of French music; some wonderful songs alternate with more obscure instrumentals. Elsewhere, Indian Raga and Arabic elements, Post-Rockisms, acoustic guitar underscored by electric flourishes, delicate flute, and spaced-out explorations all have their rightful place in this mosaic." Markus Wolff, heathenharvest.org


Words from Brave Mysteries

Underneath the atmosphere of mystery in the music, Thierry Jolif has expressed a deep connection with the Traditionalist school of philosophy and is most inspired by Eastern Orthodox Christianity. This shadowy musical persona mixed with an genuine spiritual voice inspired that we approach Lonsai Maïkov for a new album, and although we anticipated it's arrival with a open minds and excited hearts, nothing could have prepared us for the music we were about to hear. "Décembre au Mont des Oliviers" is an exceptional journey through the fearless imagination of a musical mind who is deeply in love with his muse. With augmented forces and an incredible musical confidence not heard before in the Lonsai Maïkov discography, Lonsai Maïkov produce a triumphantly exquisite progressive folk rock album. Utilizing a vast array of textures, instruments, voices, languages, timbres, time signatures, deeply psychedelic arrangements and regularly shifting moods, Lonsai Maïkov really set out to blow their listeners mind, instilling a rousing new faith within their old fans and sure to win over a large number of new coverts.

Revelation (apopcalypse) began in 1988.
The name and the sign revealed themselves in the fog of dreams and noises (at the time Thierry Jolif-Maïkov was bass player and composer in a local noise-cold-wvae band Mortus Delirium), a certain obsession with extremes, Russia and the European mythologies as well as artistic avant-gardes... ... more
