Review by Eetu Pellonpaa
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Wow, this album evidently offers very interesting and strong trip for the acceptable listener. It is opened by dirty radiophonics, revealing "Nazca"'s acoustic guitar mantras starting up the journey. Different musical ideas flow and are joined together, both fast and slow guitar motives merge as a nice sound wall where the drums join up. In following "Lost City" nice cosmic synths and tender rolling rhythm deliver a nice promise of musical trip, and then slowly shifting dreamy and dark musical inventions fulfill this promise, creating some kind of very black space rock. In the middle part there is a calmer acoustic and open "eye of the storm", later leading to a strong doom-oriented stoner passages. Third song "Shroud" starts also with calm drumming, where distorted layers of sound start to emerge. Monothonic "theme drone" is held strongly supported by surrounding noises, leading to dark cosmic sound installations. The last part of the song contains quite strong heavy contrasts of experimental noises and silence. If you like your aural psychedelics loud, trashy and tripped out, this band could be your source of inspiration. I liked this album very much due it's successfulness in sincere, effortless revelation of impulsive musical ideas and pleasant aesthetic elements. Also the shifts from peaceful calm moments and aggressive metal phases are controlled in fine manner.
