Jordan Vauvert Sunn O))) a passé sa carrière à nous faire redouter les monstres célestes et les ténèbres abyssales ; Ulver a récemment prouvé qu'il détenait les clefs du paradis et qu'il voyait dans le royaume des morts. En un mot, ils sont passés maîtres dans l'art de l'ésotérisme. Dans Terrestrials, ils sortent ainsi de leur registre : on sent la chaleur du soleil et du désert, on entend les moustiques qui nous harcèlent et les rituels. C'est viscéral et magnifique — "Eternal return" est un bijou à lui seul. Favorite track: Eternal return.

アンジュ Soundtrack to the apocalypse. Horns blare and noise vibrates your bones. A duo to be reckoned with. Favorite track: Western horn.

Western horn 09:35


released February 3, 2014

a seared red sea
dead history is
delivered and divided
in the line of the nile
pythagorean egypt
raised the house
of hades and the dead
opened the book
in sinai sin is a
golden nature
a liminal animal
existing in exile
for forty years
the desert rests
listen silent
let the letters tell
