Wow, it's the very first time that I review a disc sang in Turkish language! In fact, everything in this trio called Gökböri is Turkish, from their moniker (precisely, Gökböri, in according to Wikipedia, "was a leading emir and general of Sultan Saladin) to the line-up (also if their drummer Jesse Haff comes from USA) and from the label (Hammer Muzik, also a record store; it's owner Enis sent to me also the album here reviewed) that released their 2nd album "Erlik" to the lyrical themes faced by the band that concerns their mythology (for instance, Erlik is the god of Death and underworld for the Turkic myths). But you have also to consider that Gökböri are located in New York, USA. And what's about their sound?
