Impervious to any form of classification, Circle of Ouroborus generate an amalgamation of styles that is utterly their own creation.
Riffs are emotive while burrowing deep within the recesses of the mind, imparting themselves into the subconscious.
The vocals sit in a purgatory of tortured spoken singing, heavy with reverberation echoing across the instrumentation.
Each track effortlessly drifts into indiscriminate soundscapes with curiosities hidden throughout, providing the listener a different experience upon each visit. Another stellar entry into their ever evolving discography that should not be missed.
With “Lumi Vaientaa Kysymykse” we can see still some elements of recent CoO albums, with a lot of soothing, shoegazing melodies passing through, however the pace is rather toned down into a more dragging and Doomy pace, often reminiscing with Katatonia, both in tempo as melody wise, and with an approach more akin to records like “Kuuhun Kahlittu” and some part which are particularly metallic and acrid, such as the beginning of the second track, almost closer to Atvar’s work under Kêres. The Post-Punk basslines however are still always there creating their own shamanistic, hypnotic sound, as well as the feverish experimentalism characteristc of 70s and 80s Psych and Folk rock and adjacent much present in the keyboards and daring, outsider guitarwork, particularly in “Lankeemus”.
The prolific Erscheinung reappears from the lowlands mists to haunt you with soundscapes and dark ritual ambient hinting to the Cold Meat industry glory of old. One-off limited edition of 100 cassette tapes. No repress!
