I.Corax - The Cadaver Pulse I: Sealed In A Radiant Larval Ma [Aural Hypnox/Stellar Mansion - 2014]

The Cadaver Pulse I  is a slowly shifting & mind altering long form slice of dark/ritual ambience, which features an often dense, darkly morphing, & ritual psychedelic soundscape built around electronics, synths, field recording, modified ritual elements, and the human voice.  This is a 2014 reissue of a release that original appeared back in 2003 in an edition of  just 80 copies- this reissue comes in edition of 500 copies.

The 71 minute album is indexed into six tracks, but really these are just used to split the whole thing up into more manageable parts, as it really is one long shifting track which takes you on a rather heady, dark, and psychedelic sound journey.  The track moves from dense & malevolent synth drone scapes, onto snaking & weaving mixes of brooding ambient & ritual chatterings, through to melting & swirling sound soups of foreboding rumbles ‘n’ billows, which are edged with serrated & semi noisy ritual elements. Onto dark space bound electronic drifts & ebbs, that are slurred & edged with wonky harmonics & eerier melt/twisted field recording elements, through to lose mixes of murky electro ritual percussion & ambience brood.  On the whole it’s an enjoyable, moody & varied ride, which takes you on a dark, ritual charged, and murky psychedelic sound journey.

All told this is another worthy reissue on Aural Hypnox of another lost  slice of finish dark/ritual ambience. Of interest to those who enjoy morph 'n' melting dark ritual ambience, that takes you on a foreboding yet varied sound journey.
