More Info

Dark Ambient & Experimental Drone Newcomer aus Pennsylvania (USA), sein Debut-Album ist Sitting Bull gewidmet und taucht thematisch ein in die Mythen von Abstammung & Geschichte der Menschheit. Illustriert wird das von zum Teil archaischen, recht rauhen & gurgelnden Drones, aber auch sanftere Elektronik-Wallungen kommen vor und geheimnisvolles Oberton-Geflster... das alles wurde effektvoll in Szene gesetzte mit Gitarre, Bass & Synth / Computer. Limitierte & nummerierte Vinyl-Version im wunderschnen Klappcover.

"This ambitious, hour-long dark-ambient soundscape composition is certainly one of the finest we've heard in years. The basic concept seems to be rooted in the depths of human history and experience on Earth, and this is expressed primarily through gentle washes of electronics, computer generated sounds, and very heavily processed electric guitar and bass, occasionally building to dramatic intensity. This is divided into 12 parts, each of which stands alone with its individual theme, but also works naturally with the others to form the entire composition. The double LP version comes in a very nicely designed gatefold sleeve in a hand-numbered limited edition of 500." [label info]
