Eidulon was the term used by the Greeks to define an image that consists only in a surface without depth.
A spectral resemblance, a fictitious imago, an emanation of a divinity.
A divinity that deceives humans, introducing itself like a thin film inside them and gutting them.
During our Age Idolatry has reached its peak and the cult has preserved only a fetishistic value.
Worships, Readymades and Freights compose the soundscape of postmodern era. Pointedly, that can be documenteted and sold.
Human still is at the centre of analysis.
As shade of what doesn't exist.
"IDOLATRIAE" CD (Malignant Recors, 2008)
7 tracks of ultra bleak, abstract atmospheres, with sounds and textures that seem to seep from catacomb walls and come slithering out of subterranean chambers.
Certainly, this can be classified as a dark ambient record, but at it's core, it's more than just that simple classification.
There's a gritty, more jagged edge here, with tetonic shifts, deep rumblings, and crackling, climatic squalls buried under a bed of ghostly reverb and haunting tonal resonance.
Fits in nicely with past Malignant releases such as R|A|A|N's 'The Nacrasti', Heid's 'Arktogaa', and even Caul's 'Crucible' CD.
The album is available in a stark black and white 6 panel digipack.
Get it now at Malignant Records.
