These guys seemingly appeared from out of nowhere when Downwards first introduced them to the world at large via their ‘Offenbarung’ EP back in April 2013. I totally got into that record so when news of this clear vinyl follow-up emerged, my anticipation levels were high to say the least. Thankfully this doesn't disappoint in the slightest.
‘Sehtohree Diin Chromtas Vehns’ sets the mood in fine gloomy style with a throbbing bass line, chilling atmospherics, nightmarish percussive pulse and eerie almost ghoulish, devotional/ ethereal vocal. ‘Tuturden Giit Chreteen Dwe’ is even more spooked with breathy, dissolving female vocal, chugging machine like industrial drums and buzzes of pure electricity. Imagine lovesliescrushing going into downer industrial mode with Samuel Kerridge.
Underneath lurks ‘Wekanee Siin Redrech Enjenn’. Imagine Einsturzende Neubauten slowly beating sheet metal in a decaying church while heavenly early 4AD feminine whispered vocals interact with monk chants over electronics that sound like they’re being sucked backwards into a black hole. Dark, beautiful ghostly stuff with a weighty religious/ occult/ ceremonial aspect.
‘Wuhleor Niir Peffgeeng Pfudenn’ Closes the EP in fine doomy style with booming sinister gothic drums, muted shrieks and howls of terror like ravens being strangled, blackened ambient-scapes and bursts of broken/ fractured electronics.
Great stuff once again from this German based duo. Let’s hope Downwards have a full length from them coming in 2014.
