The second part of two compilations dedicated to the occult underground in early 20th century Germany and have appeared in the series "Germania Occulta" in a dedication to occultist Peryt Shou, one of the most important esotericists of the 20th century. This post industrial work released as a box set by the Loki label features a collaboration of two of Germany's finest post-industrial acts TURBUND STURMWERK and INADE.
TURBUND STURMWERK open the album in a quiet mood, abandoning their trademark style of crackling martial drums, howling electronics, hectoring disembodied voices and such warlike imagery. In a frightening atmosphere of nocturnal intimacy they delve into the rich heritage of the teachings of Peryt Shou. Ethereal ambient electronics and piano works with a neo-classical edge that function as a sonic testimony of occultism as a blending of human experience and ancient traditions concerning the origins and significance of humankind and the universe.
INADE follow with their usual dark ritual sounds, in a heavier industrial mood. Devastating harsh-ambient frequencies in a hypnotic spiritual research; a wrapping sonic intensity, alchemic and cathartic that works best in its more atmospheric aspects when it's a bit more abstract and simultaneously controlled.
This release is a verification of the serious interest in taking an attempt to connect esoteric knowledge with music into sounding forms. The edition came in a special deluxe box set wit a 24-page booklet in 10"size and a vinyl LP available in two different colours: red and black, hosted in a gatefold cover.
