More Info

Zweites Album dieses hchst esoterisch / spirituell inspiriertem US-amerikanischen Duo, die eine Art "Dark Ambience Folk" machen, wobei auch andere Einflsse eine Rolle spielen.. Grundlage der Songs sind meist akustische Gitarren oder andere gezupfte Saiteninstrumente, worber sich diverse andere Instrumente legen. Sehr sparsam instrumentiert, minimal, bedchtig, langsam, dunkel-erhaben & melancholisch-einsam, mitunter mit verhalltem Gesang und leicht "bluesigem" Feeling... alles per Hand eingespielt, keine Computer oder elektronische Klangquellen wurden benutzt.. kommt in fantastischer, aufwendiger Verpackung !!

"Finally, we are excited to announce the 2nd full length album from The ELEMENTAL CHRYSALIS entitled "The Dark Path To Spiritual Expansion". Featuring original visual crafts by James Woodhead & printed within an extensive 2xCD, 6 panel gatefold on obscure Sage colored stock. Both collections feature 4 pieces of music per disc, totaling roughly 2 hours of music...
The Earth Tongues have been consumed & with this, the mighty path of an Elemental Chrysalis becomes more clear. Onward through the door of a wooded heart, the Chrysalis gift transcending, organic acoustic doom composition & rich analog organ ritualism. With guided energies of the Winter Season, through the elder Pacific North Western woodlands, the mournful heart seeks comfort & cleansing in these times of blackened skies. This exploration & unique weaving of many audible threads, create the original sound that has become known today as The Elemental Chrysalis. From deeply depressing Classical movements, to lethargic rain soaked Blues Folk. Epic visual totems unfold with every breath! Seekers of today's true underground will find faith once again. This is pure headphone craft! Featuring the binding of two Capricorn spirits: RUHR HUNTER (Chet W. Scott) & AT THE HEAD OF THE WOODS (James Woodhead)." [label info]

"... it's impressive how these two men manage to make an album last two hours and be interesting and fulfilling at the same time. The vast variety of instruments and sounds give the music a great aural detail, and although those with short attention spans will most likely not be digging this, any experimental music lover worth his or her salt will want to check this one out. There's still room for improvement, but there's no doubt in my mind that The Elemental Chrysalis are heading for more greatness." [Evening of Light]
