Ritual Drone Ambient.
Two long tracks - Ceremonial & Death. Hollow, oppressive, ritualistic and meditative sound. VELEHENTOR is solo-project of well-known Russian industrial artist named 121. Besides VELEHENTOR he also has CLOSING THE ETERNITY and some collaborations with another prominent Russian artists - AD LUX TENEBRAE and VISHUDHA KALI. A whole dozen of VELEHENTOR albums and EPs was released by Drone Records, Epidemie Records, Infinite Fog Productions, Eternal Pride Productions and others. One side of VELEHENTOR's music is harsh noise, power electronics based on concept of big man-triggered calamities - dead cities in zones of ecological disasters, nuclear bombardments, terroristic attacks, the forsaken phantom-settlements among the others.
Another side of his music is static and absolutely unhuman drone ambient, e.g. audio records of northern lights. Finally, music of VELEHENTOR is based on shamanic music of north native folks and Tibetan ritual tradition. This record is deeply ritualistic and shamanic. It is musical broadcasting of Eternal Primordial Murk. It is the echo of the wind howling from beyond the reality. Two chthonic, trancey and hypnotic audio-rituals. Only ritual acoustic instruments were used for this session - dung chens, dung dkars, rkang glings and rol mo, as well as some make-shift percussions and copper bells.
