"Locked out from the Illusion, this album takes place entirely in our
former home. The darkened sky and gargantuan citadels line the horizon
as the endless city, we once ruled as gods, stretches as far as the eye
can see. Crossing the sea of the dead in search for a Beacon of Light
that can lead the expedition to uncover the truth about the factions in
control, what happened to the long lost architect and how to open a
portal back into the colorful illusion the ignorant call home."
"This 11 track Atrium Carceri album is closely connected to The Untold
and sheds more light unto what goes on in the Atrium Carceri universe
and the Metropois in particular. An industrial, dark, distorted and
cinematic experience unlike any other with amazing attention to detail
and subtle layering, this album begs for repeated listening to take it
"The Mother Stone" is of these oneiric albums that realizes its pure poetic lavishness due to the purposeful intersection of significances, metaphors, instruments, interpretations and wavering ecletic moods. String instruments, mallet instruments, guitars, piano, vocoder, synthesizers, field recordings, and voices which harmonize the acting in 4 distinct languages (english, french, spanish and italian) are the vital ingredients that form this intimate concoction of poetry, music, noise, theater and silence thus creating a pulsating flow of darkness and a driving force that seems capable to generate surrealistic parallel universes. The glitch side of the album is mostly reduced, and if crackles, squeakings or streams of static noise occur, they are by their very nature present yet distant, a voiceover that amalgamates and combines but definitely embraced by the caress of a dis-harmonious improvisational squared structures.
"From Santa Cruz, California, Michelle Eris began R'lyeh in 2011 to
synthesize the sounds and sonic chaos described in the works of Cosmic
Horror author HP Lovecraft and others. R'lyeh creates compositions from a
variety of perspectives in a spectrum from ambient to harsh, minimal to
chaotic. Her musical history spans two decades rooted in death metal,
grindcore, electronic, noise, punk and EDM; filtered through
hallucinogenic journeys, sonic entropy and introspective discovery."
"This album is a collection of soundscapes made on lap-style slide
guitars (dobro / electric lapsteel) with effects pedals, preparations
and a lapstop used for live-looping purpose.
Blending post-rock, americana, eastern music, ambient and drone in a
cinematic way, the music bridges the gap between traditional &
experimental, acoustic & electronic and aims for a balance between
textural and melodic.
All the tracks were improvised, recorded and mixed live.
The resulting stereo master tracks were then edited to make it shorter
and more suitable to non-live listening but still show every step that
occured during the live recording."
About Doxa: "trying to make sense of the half-awake hypnagogic state of consciousness between sleeping and dreaming; the same kind of semi-consciousness that follows hospital-induced anesthesia. this album also attempts to examine whispering and physical reactions to it, such as the controversial autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR)"
