Take two scoops of eerie longform drones, add some singing bowls and sprinkle liberally with voice and percussion, stir gently. The result is of course, Mind Riders, an album comprised of a set of forgotten works that complement each other nicely. "Spiritual Body" is inspired by the teachings of Daskalos, a 20th century mystic hailing from Cyprus. These are long ambient pieces accompanied by traditional percussion and distant voices. The first part sees Wiese's singing bowls join forces with hand drums, a hypnotic feast not to be missed. Still it is "Call From The North" and "Northland Wind" that capture my interest the most. These are deep cold drones, haunting wind, a faint twilight sky under brooding dark blue clouds hanging ominously above our heads, burdened by their crystalline ice. Mind Riders is a beautiful example of how to channel the unrelenting darkness into invigorating energy as the grinding winter cycle besets us once again.
