Two long tracks - Ceremonial & Death. Hollow, oppressive, ritualistic and meditative sound. VELEHENTOR is solo-project of well-known Russian industrial artist named 121. Besides VELEHENTOR he also has CLOSING THE ETERNITY and some collaborations with another prominent Russian artists - AD LUX TENEBRAE and VISHUDHA KALI. A whole dozen of VELEHENTOR albums and EPs was released by Drone Records, Epidemie Records, Infinite Fog Productions, Eternal Pride Productions and others. One side of VELEHENTOR's music is harsh noise, power electronics based on concept of big man-triggered calamities - dead cities in zones of ecological disasters, nuclear bombardments, terroristic attacks, the forsaken phantom-settlements among the others.
Another side of his music is static and absolutely unhuman drone ambient, e.g. audio records of northern lights. Finally, music of VELEHENTOR is based on shamanic music of north native folks and Tibetan ritual tradition. This record is deeply ritualistic and shamanic. It is musical broadcasting of Eternal Primordial Murk. It is the echo of the wind howling from beyond the reality. Two chthonic, trancey and hypnotic audio-rituals. Only ritual acoustic instruments were used for this session - dung chens, dung dkars, rkang glings and rol mo, as well as some make-shift percussions and copper bells.

Deaf thickets and swamps, heaven ravines, lost voices, unseen birds. Eternal mosses, lichens, fog and ancient trees. The path lies deeply through the thickets and higher to the sun, meeting with ancient human-animals, keepers of the Book. Majestic and archaic canvas neither begins nor ends, woven by the Sledge of Three-Worlds-Animals. The Words of scratches, beats, rings and rustles - all goes into vibrating flow of crudely woven muscarinic Shamanic Drone Ambient atmosphere. Tunvet appears as primitive experience for co-breathing with Earth, diving into the twilight forest and flowing into its beyond. Slow and endless movement in a Circle that appears as Eternal Order. A Myth of the World-Man Creation, a dreamflight, a meeting with the Forest Spirits preying on the flesh and substituting it with metal and stones, giving life to the Ancient Co-knowledge.
Created using field recordings, voices and woodwinds, metal gongs, percussion and "concrete" sounds. Gripping, saturating and transforming experience of raw wind, celestial chariots and chthonic naturalism.
