'the goddess…' is the culmination of everything morthound, with dark space drones ('ridged dunes'), dystopian sound collages ('hibernation') and ethnic percussion ('szygy'). but what really puts the stamp on this album is the lead-heavy sluggish guitar playing on the other four tracks, making for an imbearably tense atmosphere of urban decay: 'canalizer' drowns everything in its reverberated guitar drone dirge, 'losing ground' emanates doom and dynamics at the same time, 'whole end' marries guitar riffs with martial beats and 'fireflies' is almost head-nodding electro thrash - such is the scope within just one 45 minute album, a classic in its own right.

First-rate, bold, and brilliantly executed dark ambient from well-known masters of the form. Enticing waves of thick, luxurious drones are punctuated with a few surprising turns, as we are taken on an occult journey over yawning chasms and through twilit realms steeped in mysticism. "Centuries Passed" is particularly majestic and evocative; I've played it on repeat for hours on end, and somehow I hear something new in it every time. Immersive and inspiring! Danica Swanson

Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. MorKroM
