Sedot Sklin - The Black Mausoleum [Hoarse Records - 2010]

‘The Black Mausoleum’ is the first release from this Dutch based project and their atmospheric to caustic guitar drone based sound. On offer here is a single twenty five minute track that goes from chilling & harmonically revolving  to screaming & darkly seared.

It all starts out quite subdued with lightly crackled & rather eerier seared harmonic guitar circles that nicely revolve around each other in large tone circles, these are offte quite spacey and chilling in there  sonic patterns. As the track progressers more sharp & noisey edges start to appear as the track starts to build it’s self up to more noisey & seared highs- with the layers of guitar tone becoming thicker & more castic in there revolving folds of tone.  By the mid way point the tracks totallly raised to it’s seared yet still darkly atmospheric noise high; and the rest of the track is built around more wailing, screaming & damned guitar scaping ‘n’ dwelling tones.  In its last few minutes the track returns to more subtle & quiet territory as the guitar tone returns to creepy harmonic yet warming drone circling of quite high pitched tones.

All told ‘The Black Mausoleum’ is a  rewarding & evolving piece of guitar drone scraping that I’m sure will appeal to those who enjoy this type of thing.
