New venturing album showcasing refined, challenging and spectral artistry by Nos
Nostalgia, usually consiting of Mathias Grassow, Rüdiger Gleisberg and Carsten Agthe with the addition of few guests depending on each album, has always came with own distinctive sound on each of their previous 3 albums. Their newest album, "Echoes From The Borderland", is no exception to this rule as it blends several styles and uses ingredients from all their existing works, mostly from orchestrally dramatic "The House On The Borderland" or darkly droning "Beyond Horizon". On the top of that Nostalgia again searches for the new challenges in their compositions, this time it's introduction of raw guitar experiments by Torsten Hirsch of Agrypnie and by John Haughm of Agalloch bands. Deeper tight mysterious drones with hidden choirs open "Along Lands End" that later traverse into more massive mid-paced industrialized tribal/ritual rhythms. Over 15-minute long apocalyptic opening! Credited for his contribution to this piece is also Tomas Weiss, Mathias Grassow's fellow explorer. Next shorter "intermission" track is entitled "Short Cut 1", actually this kind of piece follows after each longer compostion on this album (4 short cuts are featured) and is mostly centered around more cinematic drifts and crispy acoustic strings, quite relieving after "heavy weight" main compositions. "Fullmoon Night On Dunboy Bay" blends darker industrial sounds with post rock or gothic doom influenced rough sound of processed guitars. "Deep Valleys Of Subconsciousness" unveils quite mysteriously with deeper, more monumental drones that are later enriched by crying guitars and also by throat singing. Truly amazing piece and definitely one of the highlights on this greatly adventurous journey! Slower "Glastonbury Gate" returns again to more threatening terrains, just like the closing marching "Dartmoor", both based on rough industrialized soundwalls. Not easy listening session when comparing, for example, to chilled-out "Arcana Publicata Vilescunt" album, but, as already mentioned, Nostalgia's members again arrived with new venturing album showcasing their refined, challenging and spectral artistry supported by attractive digi sleeve packaging by Databloem.
