GARADRAK “Nothing Beside Remains”
Ancient Meadow Records
As the cold wind scattered the mist, just for a fraction of a heartbeat, a broken idol appeared in the bleak moonlight, half sunken in the marsh. A petty remainder of a once mighty king or perhaps even a god; now of no greater importance than all the rotten water around. As it is usual, time and earth have taken their toll and in the end nothing beside remains.
Beautiful neoclassical dungeon synth dense with excellent composition and instrumentation. This album is a peaceful journey through mist-strewn fjords, reminiscent of an adventurer searching for a fabled inn with a warm hearth waiting in the distances ahead.
