More Info

Sehr getragener und melodischer dark ambient von diesem neuen Projekt, dsteres Grollen & fliessende Traurigkeit pur, Zeit gerinnt, seltsame & verstrende field recordings tauchen auf....sehr gut in Szene gesetzt, fr jeden dark ambient Fan ein Muss !

Another "hybrid" creature, this time formed by SUBINTERIOR and NEW RISEN THRONE members. Disquieting & obscure dark ambient, with some amazing "melodic" structures scattered through the songs. The shadows are speaking....
White-trayed jewel box. [label info]

"Speech from the shadows" is six tracks lasting just under 52 minutes of the darkest of dark music. The haunting refrain of twisted shadows and cold dank cellars. Of water slowly dripping into murky pools reflected in the moonlight. A claustrophobic virtual musical extravaganza where candle lights flicker and small whips of smoke rise to the ceiling. Reverberating layered alien sounds punctuate the air as an all encompassing presence makes itself felt. Traversing down long deserted corridors to the sounds of monks chanting in the distance whilst something evil follows closely behind. Abandoned and forgotten about. A traveller lost in time and space. Ancient relics of the past finally uncovered by the elements. Voices not of this earth calling from a distance. Dead men walking. Lost souls haunting their surroundings. Disembodied voices and distant rumbles punctuate the fetid air. The absolute meaning of darkness worn like a mask of despair suffocating the wearer. Intimidati ng ethereal atmospheres run amok with gleeful abandon. The fertile imaginations of those who hear this will see their own visions that these tracks invoke.
Which is why this genre of music so inspires. It develops a unique picture to each individual who comes into contact with it. No two people will conjure up the same references as they bathe in the glorious sounds. Heard in the bright light of day is a totally different experience from hearing it sat in the pitch black through a set of headphones. There are of course many such recordings that have the same effect and this release by Konau joins that illustrious list. A serious contender for one of the records of the year and its only April!! A must have for all you black hearts out there and a timeless classic which will take some surpassing. [Aural Pressure]
