As another reviewer mentioned, this is not psy, this is not goa, this is not trance - it defies genres. This is nothing but pure mysterious music, crafted with rhythm and melody, laced with atmospheric vocals. This album is one of the albums that you can listen to straight, from beginning to end, and you will be completely satisfied with your purchase. This is what music should do - eliminate the bullshit - and give an album that never loses its drive, never loses its appeal, and captivates all throughout. If you like any edm genre that's darker in nature, or movie soundtracks, or ethnic-sounding music, then you should buy this immediately.

After seeing these guys live at a forest party in Sweden, Mossmys 2, I have been looking forward to this.

The first track is totally tribal, with some didgeridoo and tribal drums. A pretty short track, lasting for almost four minutes. Track 2 starts with dark floating sounds and a beautiful female voice. After a while, some stumpy rhythms start pushing. Really cool tribal vibe mixed with progressive trance. My favourite track on this album. Track 3 is a banging progressive track, but lighter than track 2. Still some tribal influences of voice samples and tribal drums. Track 4 has a really deep bass rhythm, going in a sort of techno tempo. A dark track which almost sound a bit minimal compared to the other tracks on this album. Track 5 starts stumping with progressive rhythms from the first second. This sounds a bit industrial and cool. Track 6 is a heavy rolling track, still with the tribal influences. Track 7 sounds pretty mystic, with dark scary sounds and a beautiful female voice. Also this very tribal. One of my favourite tracks on this album. Track 8 is a lighter track, with more morning sounds and melodies. Track 9 is a down tempo track with a lot of noisy psychedelic sounds. The last track is a sort of chill out track, but pretty weird. After this, you get a little surprise, a hidden track! Always fun with those, but I often wish they had put it in as a separate track, because it is a bit annoying each time you want to just listen to only that hidden track, and not the one before... The one we get here is a funny little chilled track inspired by country music or something. Nice finish.

This album is absolutely something to check out if you like tribal trance. The album is pretty varied too and it for sure did good at a Scandinavian forest party.

"Drums From The Dawn Of Time" is on many peoples "best abums of 2003" and for good reason. Digital Structures as a label always puts out high quality releases, but they have really outdone themselves with Ethnoscope's new album. As with many of Digital Structures' release, the brand of psy-trance here is somewhat on the minimal bend, however you definately would not use the term "minimal" in describing this beauty of an album. "Tribal", "ethnic", "percussion", "ethereal" are the keywords here.

This is one of those rare albums that sort of defies hard genre placement, but basically you have loads and loads of ethnic percussion going on over a range of smooth psy-trance basses, pads and general sounds. The over all sound is very spacious and of that rare variety that is as effective on the dance floor as it is listening at home. Its an album that will make you want to both dance and lay on the floor with the lights out and your headphones on. This is a top quality release in ever regards with the whole album being excellent so there are no real highlights here. In fact there isn't even a marginally average track. Go buy it... 'nuff said
