    Templum N.R. ‎– T.o.V. Improvisations XCII-XCIII
    Label: Aural Hypnox ‎– AHUE06
    Series: Underworld Editions
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition, Reissue
    Country: Finland
    Released: 25 May 2018
    Style: Dark Ambient, Drone, Electro, Minimal

    The musical improvisations of T.o.V. derive from Umbra-visitation sessions held in the Temple of Mercurial Orgies and Room Luna Lake between 2014 and 2015. The concept of the album has been evolving within the minds of the Templum N.R. members for the past twenty years, so perhaps it is not proper to talk of this as their latest release. Linear time and Templum N.R. do not walk hand in hand and their rituals cannot be measured in hours but in years.

    Compared to their previous release ‘Spectrum CCCXC: Transitio’, this album is based on a more analog-organic approach than an analog-digital-synthetic. The four echoing Hymns of Otherness are here to awake the ghosts dwelling within; join the Stagnant Dance and meet the Carcass of Formations – the shrieks are heard from beyond.

    This CD version includes a ‘Grave Gravitation: Transitio XCV’ ep which came earlier exclusively as a part of ‘T.o.V. Improvisations XCII-XCIII’ special edition. Two tracks of pure oscillating power – minimalistic, wrathful modular drones, where multitude of hidden harmonics meets a choral of transforming frequencies.

    The album is enclosed in a customised and screen printed Sublunar series cardboard covers, including six two-sided insert cards. Limited to 300 copies.

    There is evidence that shows the existence in ancient times of an arcane civilization that controlled much of the West and even Greece and Egypt itself. The Atlantis empire was a confederation of different kingdoms located in the ancient Thule, which together formed an empire that ruled for nearly 3000 years the Mediterranean. They were experts in different subjects such as astronomy, navigation or metallurgy, one of their greatest legacies being megalithic monuments. Political and religious interests caused the oblivion of this civilization, in addition to the false legends that pushed the destruction of the myth. Precursor of Greco-Roman mythology, the Atlantean lineage was recovered over time by Julius Caesar himself for his own benefit as propaganda of the Roman Empire, becoming a living god, like the kings of Atlantis.

    Many will be the historians, archaeologists and researchers of all time who will try to decipher the mystery of Atlantis. Especially, after Schiemann discovered the city of Troy following the clues found in Homer’s readings. The hypotheses about their possible settlement have been, in most cases, speculative and with little scientific basis. Surely one of those that has gained more strength is that which relates it to Greece (Minoan culture) and Spain (Tartessian… more

    Existen evidencias que demuestran la existencia en tiempos antiguos de una arcana civilización que controló gran parte de Occidente e incluso Grecia y el propio Egipto. El imperio Atlantis era una confederación de distintos reinos ubicados en la antigua Thule, que unidos conformaron un imperio que gobernó durante cerca de 3000 años el Mediterráneo. Eran expertos en distintas materias como la astronomía, la navegación o la metalurgia, siendo uno de sus mayores legados los monumentos megalíticos. Intereses políticos y religiosos provocaron el olvido de esta civilización, además de las falsas leyendas que empujaron a la destrucción del mito. Precursor de la mitología grecorromana, el linaje atlante fue recuperado con el paso del tiempo por el mismísimo Julio Cesar para su propio provecho como propaganda del Imperio Romano, convirtiéndose en un dios viviente, como los reyes de la Atlántida. 

    Muchos serán los historiadores, arqueólogos e investigadores de todos los tiempos que intentarán descifrar el misterio de la Atlántida. Sobre todo, después de que Schiemann descubriera la ciudad de Troya siguiendo las pistas encontradas en las lecturas de Homero. Las hipótesis sobre su posible asentamiento han sido, en la mayoría de los casos, especulativas y con escasa base científica. Seguramente una de las que ha cobrado más fuerza es aquella que la relaciona con Grecia (Cultura minoica) y España (cultura tartésica). En ese sentido, las teorías encontraron afinidad con algunos topónimos mencionados por Plantón y que hace referencia al Mediterráneo, África y a la que fuera colonia fenicia de Gades.
