German band Hekate was already founded back in 1992, and over the course of the years, they advanced to the position of one of the most important representatives of Germany's Neofolk scene. Thanks to their unique mixture of folk, singer/song-writer, classical, and mediaeval music with experimental, electronic sounds, Hekate's songs are highly original. Hekate's music is hybrid music: the amalgamation of historical and modern elements aimed towards a multi-facetted style of music. In terms of content, the examination of ancient myths, lore, and legend is the band's main concern, showing their roots and their cultural background. Archaic-sounding rhythms, trance-like and ritual elements serve to highlight the music's spiritual character as well as Hekate's intention to
pick up on the hidden wishes, yearnings, and dreams of their listeners.
