Musterion: The Wondrous Journey Through The Catacombs Of Life (CD)

Musterion: The Wondrous Journey Through The Catacombs Of Life (CD)

The Wondrous Journey Through the Catacombs of Life is the second album of Musterion, following the highly acclaimed debut album The Black Lodge (2005), built upon complex and obscure composition techniques and musical innovation, and it drags the listener on a brilliantly imaginative and frightening journey that combines elements of dark ambient, surrealism, absurdity, Holyism with the help advanced structural and theoretical considerations in terms of the composition. The tale is concerning mind control by psychic, electronic, sexual, pharmaceutical, subliminal, and other means. The story stretches into the absurd and surely Simon AA Kölle exorcising some demons of his own and exploring a musical world where regular music metre is unimportant, where the rhythm of a piece could be dictated by breathless inspiration more than moving pictures (as the case with film music) or to fit a specific genre. Yet he again expands and evolves the genre of dark ambient into art music. Due to the dramatic nature of the music, which is shifting pace of both horror and atmosphere, the only way it would feel real enough included incorporation of organic instruments and electro-acoustic instruments. Improvisations, twisted circus music, industrial parts and many atmospheric moments give way for a highly symbolistic album where all elements are pieces of the broken puzzle. The album was released on Halloween 2009 as a pressed CD housed in a digipak in the limited edition of 500 copies. Extra pocket includes 12-pages booklet. Printed on Paper Couture Specials, BlancBeige, 300 g/m2 and 170 g/m2 beige. Tracklist: 1 The Elevator Down 4:31 2 Escaping The Illusions 7:27 3 Lifeless Confetti 3:01 4 Wandering Through The Catacomb 3:17 5 The Crocodile And Napoleon 5:05 6 I Am Superman & King Kong 2:02 7 I Need To Kill Him 5:24 8 A False Beard (Mother I Hear You) 5:22 9 Junkies And Agents Disappear (Lover I Hear You) 6:02 10 Follow The Black Spider 4:42 11 The Dollmaker 6:37 12 Falling Into The Maelstrom 7:49 Artwork: Niko Skorpio Catalog#: HCD XI Released: 2009 Status: In...

Silence & Strength: Das Haus Zur Letzten Latern ∼ A Tribute To Gustav Meyrink (CD)

Silence & Strength: Das Haus Zur Letzten Latern ∼ A Tribute To Gustav Meyrink (CD)

The new album by Silence & Strength has been in the making for almost 5 years, as some early pieces have been written already in 2004, being composed and recorded in various locations and conditions. This monumental work realized in an album of 13 tracks and 77 minutes constitutes an impressive narrative, which opens up a door to the magical worlds of Gustav Meyrink. Starting with evocative pieces based on some of Meyrink’s short stories the album takes us through the myriad of states and emotions – the menacing and liquid „Cardinal Napellus“, the moody and unsettling „Four Moon Brothers“, the decadent and poisonous „Ball Macabre“, the enchanting „Opal“ and so on. One of the most expressive and dramatic tracks is „Walpurgisnacht“. Combining acoustic and electronic sounds, shrieking pipes and a beat of the devilish drum, it conjures up the memories of bloody revolts and phantasmagoric affairs. The longest composition on the album is based upon one of Meyrink’s most acclaimed novels – „Der Golem“. Ranging over 18 minutes it takes us on a fascinating journey through the darkened streets of Old Prague. From the bone-chilling rain and menacing ambience of the narrow, cobble-stone alleys, through the tiny rooms of misshapen houses where the early bohemians sing rowdy chansons, to the attic of Staronova Synagogue, which serves as a secret dwelling place of the mysterious Golem, and back again into a sleazy tavern with an aged hebrew harpist wheezing through a long-forgotten song, then finally to the gates of the House at the Last Light where the alchemical hermaphrodite unites the hero and his beloved in a magical union. The journey continues, through the raucous „Green Face“, the beautiful and melodic „White Dominican“, to the meditative and conclusive „Angel of West Window“. The album ends there, but it leaves us with a precious aftertaste and a strong desire to plunge deeper into the majestic realm of Gustav Meyrink, read his works and share his dreams. Gustav Meyrink has long attracted readers for his masterful stories, examining the supernatural, the macabre, the spiritual, and the occult. With complex and ambitious novels, such as „The Golem“, „The Green Face“, „The Angel of the West Window“, and „The White Dominican“ Meyrink intertwines past and present, dreams and visions, myth and reality in a world of the occult, culminating in the transmutation of physical reality into a higher spiritual existence. Silence & Strength is a project created by a talented Israeli musician Stephan Friedman. Interfusing noise, drone, glitch and experimental dark ambient he creates soundscapes in a highly structured and ritualistic way. Secret musical spaces of Silence & Strength will enchant those who feel that there is too...

Chaoticum: [Psycho] Log: Y (CD)

Chaoticum: [Psycho] Log: Y (CD)

‚It is incredible, the strong presence of now… The unfettered persistence of being… That dread beast of awareness which, once awakened, can never be put back down again.‘ Weaving madness through electric sound and half-crazed vocals, this first full-length release from CHAOTICUM unveils the initial peering beyond the shroud of uncertainty into the gaping night, calling to mind the powerful ritual works of COPH NIA, and the sublime melodies and haunting atmosphere of THE UNQUIET VOID. Never fearing to experiment with new ideas, CHAOTICUM fuses together a plethora of dark genres, veering back and forth somewhere between order and chaos, to craft this first foray out of the curse’d lies of the light and into the black abyss of awareness. Will you make the journey? Do you hope to return? Then listen and remember… for destruction is the only true beginning, and stagnation the only death. Included in the track list are two songs ‚The Calling of Cthulhu‘ and ‚Esoteric Order of Dagon‘, musickal scenes inspired by the mad writings of H. P. Lovecraft, in addition to other break-through pieces and favourites such as ‚Ancient Hollow‘ and the neoclassical masterpiece ‚Tykie-Soo‘. So lie back, put on the headphones, and travel deep into the swirling vortex of madness and sound, for CHAOTICUM is not to be missed… or taken lightly. Created to be „cultured“ electronica, this first release by masters of „nova et rara“ CHAOTICUM will appeal to listeners of ritualistic dark ambient, voyagers of haunting psychedelic mindscapes, and chaos practitioners alike. Comes in a very exclusive 500 limited-edition digipak, with artwork designed by renowned artist John Coulthart on Rives Tradition 320g paper; includes extra pocket with poster. Tracklist: 1 Violation Of The Soul 4:53 2 Song For The Dead 5:44 3 Thus Let The Light Shine 2:56 4 Maiden Of The Hard Endless Realms 7:29 5 Savage Refuge 6:40 6 Kalidar Mists 3:24 7 You’re Only Under The Heavens 4:12 8 Scratching At The Walls 4:26 9 Crystalline Fractures In Reality 1:46 10 Tykie-Soo 3:33 11 Ancient Hollow 3:56 12 How Often Means Enough 4:00 13 Esoteric Order Of Dagon 6:40 14 The Calling Of Cthulhu 6:28 15 The Everchanging Sea Of Night 2:01 16 Pipes Of Home 4:00 Artwork: John Coulthart Catalog#: HCD 09 Released: 2007/8 Status: In...
