Keränen - Moon Over Torrelorca [Ljud & Bild Produktion - 2011]

“Moon Over Torrelorca” offers up a single hour long slice of descending, dark & deeply oppressive drone matter that seems to pull your mind into the deepest and darkest elements of both the night & ones own spirit.

The 57.55 minute track is drone at it’s most doomed, glacial and  hopeless form. The track is centred around very slowly shifting & thick currents of bleakly fed drone matter- it sounds like Keränen is using either synth or some kind of electronic based sound to create the drones central grim presence which at times has an almost ritual air about it.

As the track continues on its bleak & darkly hovering sonic arch Keränen subtle shifts and deepens the drones penetrating darkness with very slow motion sub-drone movement that just seem to pull you deeper & deeper into the central drone. One thing that does slightly upset the blacked apple kart is the odd shifting and moving sounds that can be picked up here & there through the track- I take it these are either the movement equipment or bodies as the tracks been played. Clearly the track was recorded live direct from the speakers, so I guess to a certain extent this cant be helped, but I’m afraid to say at times it does rather break the tracks blacked spell.

So if you’re a fan of deep & penetrating doom drone that moves at a snails pace this is well worth a look. And who knows you may not notice the equipment & body movement,that appears from time to time through out the track, as much as I do.
