More Info

"Leaving A Dream" is the third studio album in WHALESONG's discography released by Zoharum in coopertion with Old Temple. Two CDs contain over 120 minutes of music combining various genres into one coherent whole. A sonic feast composed of blinding light, hopes, dreams. A kind of endless stream of consciousness, sonic cinema for everyone who loves to lose themselves while listening. Many distinguished guests took part in the recordings, including Attila Csihar (SUNN O))), MAYHEM), Steve Blanco (IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT), Wukir Suryadi (SENYAWA) and many other excellent musicians, such as vibraphonist Tomasz Herisz, saxophonist Aleksader Papierz or pianist Miro Snejrd from HERR LOUNGE CORPS.

Whalesong is an experimental collective from Tarnowskie Gуry and for years the main band of Michał Kiełbasa (Grave of Love, Lugola, Harmony of Struggle, NHC). Although the group's work defies all possible definitions and unambiguous pigeonholing, in their work one can find references to such genres as industrial, noise rock, no wave, drone, jazz and post rock. In their compositions, often lasting several minutes, they attack with weight, dynamics and hypnotic phrases, crushing with the powerful, sometimes even overwhelming sound of guitars, which is constantly accompanied by a tribal, mechanically hammered rhythm. For this purpose, the musicians use both classic "rock" and more unconventional instruments, from various types of percussion, such as: gong, cymbals, tubular bells, mellotron, and even everyday objects, elements from scrap metal, some pieces of sheet metal or circular saws . So far, the group has had the opportunity to collaborate with, among others: with such artists as Thor Harris (Swans, Wrekmeister Harmonies), Wacław Kiełtyka (Decapitated, Machine Head) or Aleksander Papierz (Sigihl).

The 2CD edition and the digital version will be released on July 14 and will be combined with a special premiere concert during the Castle Party festival. Shipping of orders collected from our store and other platforms will start on July 18, after our return from the festival.
