    «La Chose» by «La Chose» review DARKROOM Magazine


    Stavolta ispirato dall’opera dell’esoterista francese del sedicesimo secolo Martinès De Pasqually, massone, studioso di teurgia e fra gli ispiratori del Martinismo, lo spagnolo Juan Carlos Toledo torna con la quinta uscita complessiva della sua creatura Hiemis, un anno dopo il buon «Radix». Per musicare questo vero e proprio viaggio iniziatico alla scoperta dell'»invisibile» sondato dall’ordine di De Pasqually e dei suoi adepti, il musicista di Siviglia accompagna la propria sottile e rifinita dark ambient a strutture sinfoniche dettate dal piano e dagli archi, intrecciando le due soluzioni nei quindici brani che compongono il dischetto (realizzato nelle 200 copie dell’edizione in bustina cartonata). Ne scaturisce un lavoro inevitabilmente più melodico rispetto alle uscite tipicamente dark ambient del progetto, in cui i toni sono sempre moderati ed abbracciano sensazioni ora più dolenti, ora misteriche, sempre col pathos garantito da un intreccio guidato dal buon gusto che contraddistingue l’operato di Hiemis. Una formula più aggraziata e lontana dalla tipica oscurità d’ambiente che tende a reiterarsi nell’arco dell’ora abbondante di durata, ma che piace proprio per quella sua essenzialità che mai la rende ridondante. Senza dubbio il lavoro più «musicale» firmato dall’act ispanico, che trova sempre temi intriganti e capaci di ispirarne le gesta sonore.

    The term Ophite derived from the Greek Ophis = Serpent.

    «An initiate must transcend this inherently earth, and move beyond. Armed with formulae s/he next walks freely through the gates, the barrier is behind them. Between the trees of knowledge they cross the circles; the yellow and blue. A little further beyond the void, and through life, to be surrounded by love. Here is the culmination of the journey, a few more steps and they are in; at Home.»

    Arktau Aon ‎– Ikuisuus Näkyy Luiden Läpi
    Label: Aural Hypnox ‎– [AHUE01]
    Series: Underworld Editions – [AHUE01]
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition
    Country: Finland
    Released: 10 Sep 2013
    Style: Dark Ambient, Tribal

    Thought lost and subsequently forgotten, a complete album by AIH & AIL of ARKTAU EOS and JKV of ZOÄT-AON was recently rediscovered. This unknown chapter in the evolution of the classic Finnish ritual sound originates from sessions held in May 2005, when Arktau Eos was still unnamed, beginning work on their seminal opus ‘Mirrorion’ and Zoät-Aon had just released the equally influential ‘Star Autopsy’ CD.

    The album retains the original title of the sessions: ‘Ikuisuus näkyy luiden läpi’, Finnish for ‘Eternity Shines Through the Bones’, and for purposes of this release the group is named simply ARKTAU AON. ‘Ikuisuus näkyy luiden läpi’ is enthusiastic, youthfully vigorous and decidedly ominous ritual music with a total running time of 31:53. Instead of songs, it is divided into different ‘movements’ or phases: it resembles a field recording of some obscure ceremony from a far-off corner of the world. Boasting a raw but good, clear sound, ‘INLL’ remains unaltered save for the mastering done in 2013 at Katajan Kaiku studio.

    Shibalba ‎– Samsara

    Shibalba – Samsara
    Label: Malignant Records ‎– TumorCD91
    Format: CD, Album
    Country: US
    Released: 22 Dec 2015
    Style: Dark Ambient, Experimental

    Active since 2009, Shibalba bring their first full ritual expression to the halls of Malignant. Samsara summons five chthonic explorations using all the hallmark instrumentation of the genre to great effect; liturgical chants and spectral vocal incantations, minor keyboard orchestrations, resonant chimes and prayer bowls, ceremonial percussion, and atmospheric drift ensconced in sepulchral reverb. It’s a tapestry of richly detailed and layered sounds that emanate from candlelit chambers and underground passages, and an intoxicating and majestic homage to the darkest of arts. Previous work must be noted and recognized, but it is with Samsara that Shibalba’s vision is fully realized. And while the shadow of Endvra, Funerary Call, and Halo Manash loom in the background, Shibalba have forged a new path and solidified themselves among the leaders of the new realm. We have entered the Halls of Inner Sadhana to re-unite Pilgrimage and Austerity, to gaze once more behind the Eyes of Samadhi, and to reach new starfields of alienation.
