Recorded in various undisclosed caves and secret locations within the French Pyrenean landscape, we are now witness to a very unique channelling of forces emanating from these two singular ritual acts. In textual studies, a “Palimpseste” is writing material, such as a parchment or tablet, used one or more times after earlier writings have been erased from it. It can also be regarded as something having usually diverse layers or aspects apparent beneath the surface. The conductive element within these recordings is water, sound sources recorded from cave lakes, streams and rivers are featured through out these recordings, carefully merged with stark, cavernous drone soundscapes and disquieting chants, guiding us to unknown territories as we venture within these singular chambers and places. The whole transpires as an hymn to the power of water, to cleanse and purify, and even destroy all it touches.
Edition of 500 copies in A5 Matt Laminated Digisleeve. 5 Tracks. Running Time 46:51
Hard to say if it is as good as or better than Yog-Sothoth (probably the further).
A very good back to shape album when compared to the not so good Shub-Niggurath from last year.
Listening to this feels like following a stranger in the streets who walks into places you would not expect (or want to go).
One detail I highly appreciate in this recording is the background vinyl sound effect. Forto Reibus.
I often drive at night, and this album makes me feel like I'm on my way to the latest crime scene. Some psycho killer is on the loose, and I'm losing sleep over trying to catch him. I need this case solved! A fantastic album! Travis Wickline
Seldom do I get the drive to repeat the disc over and over. This one got repeated while I was working on minor things. Also repeated many times w/Cosmo sleeping on my lap so drive others away, lay back, Hug the animals, Shut up and drift away!! Praise be to Simon and His Collaborations!!! tzarcophagi
If Disambiguation isn’t the gothic ambient album of the summer, it’s certainly the ideal soundtrack for sunbathing alone on a float at an abandoned community pool. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jul 12, 2018
