Synths'n'drums meditative live record from Mathias Grassow & Carsten Agthe. The concert consists of 2 parts: "The Woodland Highway" (CD 1) and "Invocation of Inner Flame" (CD 2).
The music is constantly developing, and compostions are flowing one from the other.

The first compositions ("Daybreak" and "Drinking from Clear Water") seems a little bit static, but don't worry - Mathias & Carsten are creating the mood for their music. The rhythm is becoming more dynamic in "Sanctuary Deeper Withion" and reaching its peak in "The Hunt" (My associations - "The Passion" by Peter Gabriel).
"Silent Contemplation" is a kind of intermission before the second part of the concert.

"The Gathering of Clansmen" - light drones, slow rhythm of drums, sometimes Mathias is playing keyboard harmonies over the drones... "Wild-Eyed Shamans" is more emotional and darker in its mood composition with the leading role of drums by Carsten Agthe in the second part of the track. "Moonless Night" and "The Coming of Dawn" are probably improvised tracks and they are less impressive.
In general - effect of music is relaxing and meditative, and if you like synths'n'drums "Alchemystery" series from Mathias Grassow (or if you like as example his early album "Life Cycle") you would like this record. As always Gterma made impressive release with good photos in the booklet.
