"Foglands is the follow up to the gorgeous and very well received compilation The Threshold Of Silence reviewed a while back, which featured a bunch of AQ faves: Aidan Baker, Troum, Paul Bradley and a bunch of others. A gorgeous collection of minimal dronemusick running the gamut from ominous Lustmordian darkness to glistening dreamlike ambience. Foglands is sonically similar, but features a lineup of groups for the most part unknown to us. Thankfully, all the bands involved are mining the same mysterious sonic soundworlds as
our favorite soundmakers and dronelords.
There's the slightly ominous, almost new wave blisss out of Seren Ffordd's “Haze”, the rich lustrous whir and cavernous shimmer of Darkened Soul's “Visu”, Mathias Grassow offers up a sprawling expanse of hazy glimmering soft focus hum in the form of “Deeper Purity”, Netherworld's “Frostnetter” is an reverb drenched percussive soundscape, Eastern tinged and rife with bits of feedback, and strange clanks and clangs, dreamSTATE deliver “Fogbound”, a lengthy dreamy drift of soaring cinematic strings and soft swirling swells, Oophoi's “Outremer” is a super abstract, stark soundscape of whirring winds and almost static stretches of slow shifting hushed blur, and finally Thomas Weiss closes the proceedings with “Isolation”, an appropriately isolationist sprawl of whispered melodies, deep throbbing low end, and gently swaying bits of chordal glimmer.
Fans of all things drone and ambient and dark ambient and black ambient and drifting and dreamlike, will definitely fall under the soporific spell of Foglands. Packaged in an oversized full plastic sleeve, with an
oversized card, full color image on one side and liner notes on the
other. LIMITED TO 300 COPIES, each disc hand numbered." [Aquarius Records]
