Svarte Greiner - Penpals Forever
Digitalis Limited, 2008
Spot-on cassette of "acoustic doom" from Sweden's Erik K. Skodovin, head of the genius Miasmah label and half of synth-string ambient masters Deaf Center. Don't be expecting "official" acoustic doom in the vein of Fearthainne/Alethes, this pure instrumental dark drone musick. Subtle and unsettling moans and drones rise in an out of tape hiss. The awful goings on of catacombs where things stranger than the undead lurk chattering amongst the bones. Fogged late-night post-apocalyptic isolationism in mankind's abandoned factories. A powerful, deep sound with many hidden elements.
