Mysterious, creative, controlled chaos. Love this record. It is short, but somehow that makes it even better, like the exact length of both songs carries some significance..
Favorite track: Last Utterance.
This may be one of my favorite releases by 夢遊病者. These tracks feel like they are ripped from the hymnal of a dark cosmic druidic cult. Both tracks compliment each other and the production value on the vinyl record is top notch. One side contains both tracks the other site an awesome etching.
Now a world-renowned phenomenon in the extreme/experimental underground, 夢遊病者 return with another catastrophic mindfuck of shapeshifting and disorienting psychedelic black metal mastery that will shatter your synapses.
Ѫ ("Yus") represents a crossing of worlds between the old and the new, the passing of power and skill from ancestor to youth and their successes and failures, the portal between distinct cultures, the obsolete alphabets and their new acquired meanings and the evolution of language and it’s proxy disciplines like music. While in Buddhism, the zen concept of 無 signifies “nothingness”, “not having” and the “absence of something”, it’s obsolete variant Yus (Ѫ) or modern “У” in Cyrillic, implies “to be near” or to be “in possession of”. In Traditional Chinese, the symbol denotes “shaman” or “sorcerer”, while in Eastern Mari “У” connotes the idea of the “new”. This sometimes contradictory cross-cultural phenomenon of dying language and obsolete literary systems taking on new meaning and symbolism was the inspiration for this short EP. Can a creation live on—if even in other forms— like offspring, or will it simply perish with time?
this band so far can do no wrong. this is an album people will be talking about for years and years to come. it's an instant classic. it has everything you want in a death metal record. this is a must have album and my album of the year in 2019 kittyandpooch
