New deeply introspective album by Norway’s Taphephobia. Opting for a slightly cleaner sonic palette than previous releases using less processed sounds and a more natural sounding approach to his guitar work, Ketil Soraker pushes what is now considered as Taphephobia's signature sound. In the vein of his previous Cyclic Law release “Escape From The Mundane Self”, we are submerged in a skillful combination of lush ambient guitar passages, sonic abstractions and processed flute. “Ghostwood” is a most personal hymn to experiencing the solace of the northern forest. Artwork by NIHIL.
Edition of 300 Copies in 4 panel Digipak. 10 Tracks. Running Time 45:37
Another good addition to the Lovecraft Cryo Chamber Collection, Shub-Niggurath is a deceptively simple album, with lots of subtle audio details that contribute to the dread and mystery of the atmosphere. Headphones are definitely recommended here. Peter Rabbit
Am I alone in that this album has me daydreaming of venturing Antarctica!? Lots of folks are conditioned to want to travel the exotic tropics & near pit of Hell temperatures, not I. Someday, bucket list, someday... ;) taylor[+]
