Flowers Of The Abyss
ritual drone/noise/black metal/martial
Wind and stars… cold, frost, rain, darkness, snow, trees and panting. Glittering clouds of steam rising from the lake. The lake is far away in the mountains and its surface is as a mirror of black velvet. Without a hint of motion it observes the clouds and slowly, beautifully and symetrically, it bleeds into the skies. The sweetest flavour of forbidden fruit. Long and cold are the nights over Bergen, over the avenue of your trees. The death's-head moth sits at the ceiling of your room.
Norwegian musician Andreas Brandal with a nearly 40 minute long material of his ritual project HIDDEN PERSUADERS – a musical collage somewhere between raw black metal/harsh noise/drone with pronounced marching passages – a strong atmospheric album.
The nice graphic design is made by Svjatogor. It comes in an edition of 49 tapes inside a heavy paper box hand-painted with acrylic and a sitting death's-head moth at the top.
