| German Import | During a few years since their debut CD in 1999 the project of Henry Emisch and Frank Merten from Leipzig has received a great reputation in the fields of Ritual-Ambient music. The soundtracks projected by Herbst9 open a transcendental space, leading the listener to the depths of the unconsciousness. Archaic sounds of an earthly timbre are combined with subtle-sweeping melodies and chorals while strong percussive rhythms and drummings built up a shamanic atmosphere. The natural sound stands with Herbst9 and the ritual motives developing visionary sequences.

The all new album of Herbst9 is a step further into the depths of the Assyrian and Asian mythologies, using authentic audio and visual fragments of sacrifices, lamentations, prayers and ancient rituals. The result is a deep labyrinth of sounds with meditative percussions, ghostly vocal fragments and singings which melts with detailed and multi-layered tones of various traditional instruments. All this is constructed around a core of dark and ongoing floating drones creating an atmosphere of true archaic music which has been developed by Herbst9 to perfection. This soundtrack is the secrecy from the deep and hidden places of the sacred earth transcending us beyond the real world to the inner realm of ourselves.

The CD is presented in 6-panel digipack.
