Mountains, forests, lakes and seas, the souls of birds and beasts. Twilight Blooming’s music uses its iconic accordion and violin as the theme of its melody, combining female vocal ballads with metal music and dark atmosphere, presenting a rural romance and uncontaminated heroism sentiment. Twilight Blooming, founded in Chengdu, Sichuan, China in 2016, has gained a deep bond with folk metal through constant member changes. Through the years, their music has become deeply infused with a humanistic spirit and an appreciation for nature. Influenced by European folk music and complemented by the energetic rhythm of metal music, the band creates an atmosphere that is melancholy, obscure, fresh, vibrant, and passionate. The beating melody of accordion and violin combined with the roaring metal guitar interweaves the graceful female voice between extreme metal vocals and fresh and soft ballads. Twilight Blooming explores both folk and metal music, presenting us with a brand-new auditory experience. The evocative and simple melody leads us to the magical and far-away homeland.
