"There is a stench here so old that it rids the bodyof any uncertainty. It is a comfortable rapture. The stench comes not from distant swamps, putrescent and green in their small wakes, or the mounds of bone matter and meat made dust underfoot. This waft of hidden and yet all-too demanding treasures lifts itself steadily from the bated, beating wings of the Bird, on its eternal voyage somewhere far past home.
"Utilising both analogue synthesis and a dynamic range of acoustic instrumentation, Bird From the Abyss' Matias Aaltonen crafts definitively archaic compositions and flawlessly timed improvisations steeped in universal mystery. The tectonic movements developing and unfolding from these unholy hymns mold and fold into one another, cutting clear marks across certain borders while blurring any known remnants of others."
Bird from the Abyss has always been HSS favorite, so we're very happy to see this double cassette, limited to only 125 copies, available now for purchase. The packaging has been done up very nicely:
♦ bloodred c60 + c40 tapes, handstamped + inked in black
♦ handcut, dyed + scored custom chipboard O-cards + insert
♦ handstamped red 8.5" by 8.5" insert with black lettering
♦ handnumbered & stamped in roman numerals
♦ screenprinted artwork by D.S. Ciarán
You can hear sample at the Bird Bandcamp, and can purchase the limited edition double cassette from He of the House.
