about

Since the quizzical intro "Me and my thumb" segueing into the majestic ambient soundscape of "In the woods", SATOR reveals itself as a haunting listening experience, shimmering with a sort of dreamlike (or maybe nightmarish?) luminescence.
Blackened whispers, Nico-esque harmoniums, subtle synth touches creeping in here and there: everything concurs in creating the melodic but arcane ambience permeating the entire album.
But it is not all theta state-inducing droney stuff: "Ota Benga" is a drum-fest coupled with dissonant Fender Rhodes outbursts, "Kash-Ok-Kashak" adds to the mix psychedelic guitar swirls and ominous vocal samples, while closer "Ave Maria" sounds more like an inexorable, nerve-shattering pagan ritual than an actual prayer. And yet SATOR is truly a shamanistic take on Catholic rituals, all performed with an intensity that smells of incense as much as of fire and brimstone.
