(Reviews 180) SELO VATRA,TANDEM BRIDGES






SELO VATRA (Usa)
"Ret-Sevrah" Cd 2013
After the great debut album,SELO VATRA returns with a powerfull magickal manifestation rising the old pagan cults and the inner sanctuaries of flesh and bones, of elder gods and spirits,all this created through 7 hymns of pure ritual ambient. The opening track is "The Gathering" ,a very suggestive piece with an incredible work of percussions and some subliminal female voices crawling from time to time. also the use of horns on the track makes of this piece absolutely amazing,due how the tracks is slowing transporting you to another levels of existence. The album continues with "Harvester" a dense and agonic exposition of vaporous atmospheres and percussive sounds gathered by some strings metamorphosis and an enigmatic feeling through the whole track. the next manifestation is "Spirits Of The Forge" ,another great piece here ,this time the steel is burning to give birth an extensive magickal comunion between the spirits and men. "Marrigu's Breath" dwells in its own essence ,is a floating track with so very high interesting elements coming all together to create a vast scenario full of maracas,atmospheres,and other instruments which enrich the whole track in its totallity."Solace" is absolutely brillantly,an in deep exposition of sounds convering in something magickally charged with power. water sounds,synths,an a dep experimentation of sounds makes of this absolutely a wonderful voyage.through "Ret-Sevrah" and " Rain and Tears" SELO VATRA explores infinite possibilities of their creative nature,through the diverse use of elements which enrich the tracks in a very apropiate way. I reccomend this album to all those interested in deep ritual ambient with dynamism and originality. one of the best album coming this year!! The album comes in a colorful A3 three panel digi cd ,with a sleeve including the concept of each one of the tracks and more. write to Phil Brito and noctivagant to order your copy now!
