'death time' is 13 tracks of unlucky darkness, directly from the mind of a youthful musical talent, recorded in a pre-software era on minimal equipment, but treated to maximum effect. a bed of fragile almost-drones lines a set of outerworldly rattling, crashing and scraping sounds, and sometimes the listener is suprised by alluring melodies among all the bleakness ('death time', 'path of death'). spoken word samples ('mithril') and marches ('fold up') reference history - from the industrial revolution over totalitarian deterioration and the final stages of the cold war to the balkan conflict, while 'entertainment in the desert' dances with arabs. in the end, the sonic vortex of 'third gate' says it’s all about death - if you dare.
It's a dark journey through dim places that used to be inhabited by creatures from outer space or by some forgotten gods fallen into oblivion. You can see the light from times to times even in the darkest of places... Wasn't really into Ambient before but I feel that the whole album incorporate well into a death metal playlist it makes for a great hiatus between some more demanding materials. Th3G00D
