Within the past eight hours the fourth of the six tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) was revealed.

By The Spider’s Thread We Are Linked which, as their previous material, takes the listener on an eerie journey of dark mountain valleys and looming cliff-faces as the just under five minute composition spreads its dark cloud through the room leaving the listener to conjure up tales of their own making to the soundtrack.

Also from the Dismal Rift LP coming out on the 24th – Scream And Scream Again is a more mellowed track which threads a calming flow of electronics, whilst shimmering dusty hisses blow across the ears to be accompanied by a rumbling darker underbelly that gathers presence through the five and a half minutes of entrancing drone.

Pull back your chair, rest the light and allow yourself to float.




From the just under one and a quarter hour five track EP – the opener is Black Mountain Drone, which does exactly what it says on the tin. Minding of North facing mountain cliffs (or South facing if one is climbing in the Southern Hemisphere), the approaching twenty five minute track paces the pulsing arms and legs with the slow progress up a 2 000 metre face whilst showered in falling rocks and ice across a barren face of unremitting incline and overhang, yet despite the fact of being held by points of crampons supported by aching thighs and cramped calves, with arms screaming from scratching pick points into lumps of fragile connection, the expansive beauty of the outlying crops of geological formation holds the mind transfixed and the inner turmoil subsides to reflect on the surrounding disinterest in ones own comparative tenuousness.

Dismal Drifting is an EP I most certainly recommend getting hold of to add to ‘comparative contemplation music playlist’.

Sadly, I am only permitted to share with you the compacted seven and a half minute version of Black Mountain Drone at this point in time.
