|HERBST9 Buried Under Time And Sand CD. Digisleeve
Originally released in 2005 this album marked the beginning of Herbst9's Babylonian cycle which was later continued with "The Gods Are Small Birds..." CD and the most recent "Ušumgal Kalamma" double CD. Here's the original write up: with their third full-length recording Herbst9 set another milestone in the field of serious ritual ambient music. The tracks on "Buried Under Time and Sand" consist of multi- layered kinetic, luminous tones and ephemeral nuances . Deep walls of atmospheric ambience full of ritual sounds, spanning the darkest corners of the globe for inspiration…ranging from hidden catacombs, to steamy jungles, to ancient burial sites and forgotten cultures, This is constantly in motion, full of devouring, mystical atmospheres that reach to the farthest heights, before descending downwards in a deep, crushing sweep. At once, beautiful, yet so purely dark and ambient that it’s mark will be left long after you stop listening. Once again, Herbst9 set the bar incredibly high.
