raison d’être – ‘Within the Depths of Silence and Phormations’ (redux) 2CD is now available in my webshop:


Press release:
Within the Depths of Silence and Phormations’ takes the listener deep
below the world of the ordinary into the catacombs of the subconscious,
the worlds lying within us so few ever live to explore. This is music
meant to stimulate the mind, to inspire one in their explorations of
self and solitude. Layers of ethereal atmospheres and the collage of
choirs, strings, bells and occasional voices slowly bleed together to
create music for society whose spirituality has been rendered impotent.
Soaking in this world, one is left with the impression of overwhelming
sadness and profound desolation. This is the sound of all hope

‘Within the Depths of Silence and Phormations’ is an expedition into the
hidden parts of the inner self and is bridging feelings of deep
melancholy to blessful joy as it seeks for the true essence of human
existence. Original released in 1995 by Cold Meat Industry the album has
now been restorded, re-recorded and mixed to render the modern standard
of sound quality still maintaining the perfect balance between subtle
and harsh, dark and pure of the original mix. ‘Within the Depths of
Silence and Phormations’ is accompanied with a second disc bringing
tracks from various compilations from the period together to form a
strong twin album. A unity with double joy: Wallow in the melancholy!

The album comes in a 6-panel digipak with awesome photos by Martín Pels.
