More Info

"DESIDERII MARGINIS long out of print debut album from 1997 Songs Over Ruins is given a proper re-issue, carefully remastered by Johan Levin himself and with new artworks as CD and limited edition LP. A landmark in the genre, with its desolate, minimalistic and grief stricken odes to religious and spiritual burdens. A foray through abandoned ruins and a reflection on the passing of time and the impermanence of all things physical. Outstanding in quality and production skills, this mesmerizing and foreboding journey is at times tranquil and melodic and also dives into more martial like percussive elements and industrial atmospheres. Classics like these definitely need to be discovered still and also rediscovered, and its with great pleasure that we make it available once again.
CD Edition of 500 Copies in 6 panels Digipack with Matt finish." [label info]



"The tune of a little bell overlaid by strange voices seemingly far away. Melodic atmospheric ambient sounds, one piece with straight rythms, the other very slow and quiet like musical description of a tree without its leaves, having cold and waiting for spring that never comes..."
[original Cyclic Law label info]

"Desiderii Marginis have created the soundtrack
to the post-apocalyptic world. Taking the
approach of Ordo Equilibrio and Raison Detre,
there is melody and tension created purely by
minimalist structure, catastrophic tranquility
and powerfully present percussive tempo.
This is ambient music in a haunting and
uncomfortable setting, also using some familiar
throbbing power electronic elements at times,
to keep the diverse mix alive and unnerve the
listener even more. The mixture of minimalism
and diverse elements creates a fluid piece that
leaves a somber reflection, exquisite in its terrorand eerie passages." [TheReckoning]
