Erta Ale is the name of a volcanic lake in the hottest place on Earth. The heat of this strange and very hostile place should resemble the roughness and wickedness of the tracks on the compilation.

This compilation is something special. It is the culmination of neo-goatrance. Suntrip gave it a new life, metaphysical continued it, Phototropic picked off where metaphysical left. Kagdila also has been along on the ride and then new labels like Dimensional and Lookinglook that are starting to release new goatrance. And with all of this DAT Records has been able to release unreleased old goatrance for the pure old schoolers. Cronomi on the other hand has successfully made something that has been left alone for so long. Their compilations Freshly Cut Tomato and People Walk Funny gave a glimpse of the darker, purely psychedelic side of modern goatrance, then they released Artha which is generally considered somewhat of a Hallucinogen right now with his completely different take on neogoa. Then there was a darker compilation from Suntrip called Temple Of Chaos that also successfully sparked some darker goatrance though not completely. So, up until now, most of what has been released has been danceable, trippy at times, ultra-melodic and brighter, uplifting goatrance mostly which some like to call fluffy goatrance.

All of this has been leading to this point in time where a new evolution has come across. Right here, right now. This compilation is raving psychedelic goatrance. I could say it's dark neogoa, but this is not how I honestly feel about it. It is different than simply dark. While I was listening to this, tons and tons of emotions were sparked. I felt shocked, joyous, happy, full of inspiration and energy. I was traveling through Motherships, Space, Alien cities, Area 51 type twisted research facilities. I was in utter disbelief at times at what was I witnessing. The ride it gave me was wondrous, magical, almost enlightening. What this is, is 100% true soul successor to what once made goatrance so amazing in the 90s. Yes, eastern melodies and trippy fun grooves came from there as well, but the darker side, up until now, has mostly been untouched. The richness of this compilation is palpable in this aspect. Think of Cydonia or X-Dream with their dark and aggressive tracks modernized. The soul and direction is what they had. The quality of the tracks is utterly astounding. The sounds, melodies, leads, atmospheres, basslines, details are all immensely rich, psychedelic, twisted and the production is huge. The mastering here I cannot for the life of me ever begin to complain about. From absolutely tasty acid to thick atmospheres and whirling tornado melodies to pure ecstasy and twisted sounds this compilation has it all. I love it.
