A creative mix of curious, melodies, colourful harmonies – heavy, sweating rhythms – and inspiration from various musi-cal styles is how they define new Danish folk music. Tumult consists of four experienced musicians from Odense with each an individual musical background and experience; a hardcore folk-fiddler & singer, a popular rock guitarist, a hardcore retro bass player and a groovy rock drummer. It is the meeting of musicians with each their musical culture and background that gives rise to new possibilities and adventures. Prejudices are being reduced and the limits for what you can do with the music become fluid. Most of the group's repertoire are new compositions, but it also includes traditional material: – songs, ballads and tunes from Denmark, which are treated affection-ately in new interesting arrangements. Tumult started spreading in Odense in the autumn of1999

"Though an album of several moods, in its shining "heavy" moments Wallegnav is an interplay between Dickmeiss' bright-eyed traditional fiddle and a barrage of metallic bassline from Kristian Lassen, Thomas Kristofferson's simmering blues rock guitar, and the insistent drumming of Lars Frimodt-Møller. Tumult may start out like Iron Maiden for a few bars, but the fiddle always wins." - Judith gennett (RootsWorld)
