brantly Apocalyptic dark ambient with some rumblings of drone-y doom crepitating like a devil in the night. Occasional vocal gurglings rise up out of the miasmatic tarry pitch like spectres in a nightmare, tortured amplifier laments slither in and out of the grainy musical frames, and the darkness overcomes the room. I'd say this LP is a poor choice for grandma's birthday, but a perfect selection for headphones late at night. One of my favorite LP's of the year fer sure!!!

Matthew Arnold A really cool take on ambient; this has elements of Sunn O)))'s "Monoliths and Dimensions" combined with shimmery, spacey effects, to create an entirely new whole. Extremely sinister and otherworldly atmosphere; take the aritist's advice and listen to it loud to get the full effect; there's a lot going on here.

Sentient Ruin kindly asks you on behalf of its creator to experience Clavicvla’s music in its intended and most appropriate setting: in total darkness, and at maximum volume possible, ideally through an audiophile sound source. Total darkness and volume are the only two external factors necessary to complete Ittiel’s design, the other being the music he created, so to dismantle your mind and will. Together, they are one, and you are the only vessel to the whole. Let it lead you to the whole.

Sentient Ruin is honored and proud to bring you an aural and sensorially devastating experience like nothing else. A masterpiece of infernal aural terror which expands the mind - stretching it to its inevitable death and dissolution - and which paralyses the flesh. Italian one-man dark ambient/death industrial demon CLAVICVLA seamlessly blends the obsidian immensity of Lustmord and the wretched mantras of Trepaneringsritualen to unleash forty minutes of dismal and infernal atmospherics, drowning the listener into a formless and hallucinatory sonic void of utter dread and of unparalleled darkness. With inhuman and monstrous sub-bass frequencies, diabolical atmospheres, and black hole-sized drones, throughout these five tracks the listener will be transported to an otherwordly and remote realm lost somewhere at the edge of existence, where the boundaries between nightmare and reality begin to blur and dissolve, revealing a world beyond of absolutely omnipotent and boundless demonic enormity.
