More Info

"Many faceted artist M created Zalys in 2013 and already qualify for a place in the throne room together with long runned acts such as Alpha Wave Movement and Atomine Elektrine. Taking inspiration from genres as different as black metal and cinematic soundtracks Zalys deep and spacious sound explore the territories and vastness of outer space. Zalys fifth album Sublime opens in a distant place, void of life. Only signals from galaxies afar or echoes from parallel once flickers through. Zalys is the explorer passing enigmas and worlds beyond our imagination, leaving us with a longing to go back there again (and again).
It is with great pleasure that Reverse Alignment welcome Zalys to our midst with a promise of even greater musical experiences to come.

"Some far out celestial psychedelic drift from Sweden, Sublime by Zalys is indeed appropriately titled, as much of the album does exist in some sort of sublime otherworld, touching on elements of Pop Ambient and kosmiche krautrock. Like much of this kind of music, it instantly evokes a planetarium light show, but there's much more going on, as if you leaned back, to enjoy the projected stars and planets, only to find your surroundings fading away, leaving your corporeal form behind, as you somehow become those stars and planets, their aeons of cosmic existence fusing with your relatively brief lifespan, as you're bathed in unearthly light, held aloft by shimmering sonic slipstreams... there also are moments of ominous intensity, but those seem to be bookended by glorious prismatic swirls, and hushed melodic glow.
Mesmerizing and meditative, tranquil and lysergic, but also densely textured, rife with sonic minutiae, voices (or are they voices?) smeared into soft focus cascades of melody, bells and chimes (are they...?) blossom into gauzy fractal patterns, billowing outward like ripples in a cosmic pond. It's a celestial dreaminess that unfurls at a glacial pace, a cinematic musical travelogue though the universe, and a wild eyed aural embrace of whatever lies beyond. " [Aquarius Records]
