Otavan Veret is another new addition to the Cyclic Law family. Hailing from mystical Finland, the project is from the minds of Kaarna (Tervahäät, Slave's Mask, Anima Arctica Label etc..) & Kivelä. Their first self titled album is a conceptual journey towards the the vastness of the universe, where one would simply seep into and become on with these amorphous territories. A calm, epic, massive and monotonously rich curtain of ritualistic sonorities escalates as radiant timbres morphs like an aurora borealis amongst stellar luster. Ever present is the uttermost distance, deep as lethargy, soothing as still waters and affective as phantoms.
Edition of 500 copies in 6 panel Digipack.
3 Tracks. Running Time 50:00
The shadows of the old city creep upon you as you delve deeper and deeper into its depths. What horrors to see, what marvels to behold? Codex grasps your throat and pulls you further down into this twisted travesty of reality. At no point it looses tension, keeping you on your toes with sounds from another dimension. Is this real? Or is it the sick dream of an ancient god? Whatever it is, an ambient highlight it is for sure, a powerful statement and a new benchmark for the genre. Rindenberg
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
