Canada's Parhelion first full length album "Midnight Sun" is a collection of sonic reflections on the natural geography and harsh climate of the arctic terrain. Perhaps more so, it is also a meditation on the sacred quality of this mysterious land and man's relationship to it. Inspired both by the physical beauty as well as the mystic spirit which shrouds the northern landscapes, the album is the culmination of several years of studio experimentation and sound exploration. Blending guitar drones, icy synth pads and environmental sounds, "Midnight Sun" attempts to convey the solemn spirit of awe and reverence for the great white north through the use of sound and texture.
Edition of 1000 copies in 6 panel Digipack.
12 Tracks. Running Time 60:00
When it comes to ghostly, sinister(?) atmospheres, I believe Dead Melodies is that brooding shadow observing me from that derelict bell tower. I sense a kind of melancholy subtly coiled around the scarier moments of this beautiful production. slc_winterized
Like drifting through deep space, “Transient Lunar Phenomenon” sets you on a path of the unknown, where the far reaches of other worlds no longer seem so distant! With the use of analog equipment, these heavy, drawn-out drones are timeless and thought provoking. Well done to Sphäre Sechs for another spectacular album!! David Loveless
