AJNA – MORS ULTRA
AJNA is an ambient drone project from New York. This upcoming release for Cyclic Law is 2CDs of cool droning textures which explore the iciness that lies beyond the notoriously cramped confines of their home city.
Self described as “Surreal, Isolationist & Deep Soundscapes.”, the following has been said about AJNA‘s upcoming release:
“A follow up to his highly acclaimed “Oracular” album, New York based AJNA offers us a massive double album of grandiose isolationist soundscapes. Mors Ultra (Beyond death or death no more) Depicts the survival of consciousness after death. Now that consciousness survived we are exploring the metaphysical realms and unknown dimensions of the universe through a new form of consciousness revealing an infinite Quantum State. Death as a whole no longer exists. Mors Ultra is ultimately a dark, contemplative and intense journey through the realms of the afterlife. “The body dies but the spirit that transcends it cannot be touched by death. That means I am the deathless spirit”“
CD 1 contains 11 tracks with a run-time of 69:34, and CD 2 contains 12 tracks with a runtime of 77:49.
Coming in an edition of 300 in a 6 panel Digisleeve with matt lamination, Mors Ultra can be pre-ordered before its release date of 20 May, 2022 from the Bandcamp link below.
NYIÞ – ᛬ᚢᛁᛋᚿᛁ•ᚼᛆᛏᛁ•ᚼᚱᛅ᛬
Further drawing on the vastness of icy northern settings is the Icelandic artist, NYIÞ (pronounced “Neeth”). On ᛬ᚢᛁᛋᚿᛁ•ᚼᛆᛏᛁ•ᚼᚱᛅ᛬, NYIÞ uses familiar instrumentation of drums, guitar, voice, and horn in unorthodox ways to create dark moods where drone music and eclectic outbursts weave in and out of gaping holes of open space.
The following has been said on NYIÞ‘s ᛬ᚢᛁᛋᚿᛁ•ᚼᛆᛏᛁ•ᚼᚱᛅ᛬:
“Elusive Icelandic stalwarts NYIÞ present “᛬ᚢᛁᛋᚿᛁ•ᚼᛆᛏᛁ•ᚼᚱᛅ᛬”. We’ve collected NYIÞ’s (pronounced Neeth) first four releases from 2011 to 2019; a trilogy of tapes and material from a split album, into a unique whole. Cohesion is woven throughout the tape trilogy by a thread of curse-poetry. “Til eru hræ sem hafa aldrei verið menn og munu aldrei verða þó þau lifi enn” is a perversion of a nationally beloved poem on death acceptance. “Hati þá guð og helgir englar allir” is an invocation from a 17th century grimoire, petitioning God, alongside a multitude of other natural and super-natural entities, to hate the utterer’s enemies. “Visni þitt hold svo betur megi hæfa þeim hug sem það hýsir” is a toast to the misfortune of the most deserving; literally ‘Thy flesh wither, the better to suit the mind it houses’. “Caput Mortum”, the final release represented in this anthology, breaks thematically with the preceding tape trilogy. Inward-looking and devoid of lyrical content, its two offerings, whose titles may be translated as Root and Maelstrom respectively, allude to sub-surface phenomena, stability and churning chaos.“
CD 1 contains 6 tracks with a run-time of 47:02, and CD 2 contains 5 tracks with a runtime of 57:14.
Coming in an edition of 300 in an 8 panel Digisleeve with matt lamination,
᛬ᚢᛁᛋᚿᛁ•ᚼᛆᛏᛁ•ᚼᚱᛅ᛬ can be pre-ordered before its release date of 20 May, 2022 from the Bandcamp link below.
