More Info

Acouasm is a psychiatric notion for unshaped, non-verbal aural deceptions, amorph and elemental sounds and noises, such as hissing, ringing, scraping, only perceived but never actually present. The seven long tracks of pestering transrational drones on Acouasme are like aural psychiatric symptoms, humming hallucinations leaving the stable reality. The introspective and brooding atmospheres and industrial-tinted tapestry become a feverish dream, through a deranged perception.

Its still Troum, though, meaning that the fever also breaks, returns and breaks again, pushing you back and forth between delerium and a peaceful mind. Cast Iron Ark, the added new track from the Acouasme sessions, especially fits in nicely with its monumental grandeur and washes of drowned-out ghostly voices.

The album has been remastered and cut by Frederic Alstadt (ngstrm Studios) and pressed on 180gr white vinyl 2LP, limited to 300 copies.

Acouasme sets you deep into a world of strange and eerie aural occurences... At the end of Acouasme, I can only walk away stating that I have experienced something that I do not fully understand as of yet. [Brutal Resonance]
