Peculiar Storms CD
Comes in a 4-panel digipack with a 16 page booklet and postcard. Booklet includes art by Theodor Kittelsen and original prose & poetry.
Dreamscapes For Solitude & The Facilitation Of Escape.
The first full length, Peculiar Storms, is comprised of six pieces accompanied by original prose & poetry and is accompanied by the paintings/illustrations of Norwegian artist Theodor Kittelsen. The music utilizes elements of new age, drone, world/folk, dungeon synth, and field recordings of nature & storms. Combining lush soundscapes with the moodiness of the art and the ambiguity of the text, the album serves as a drift off point to abstract and surreal landscapes. Monastery seeks to facilitate escape to more haunting and dreamier worlds than the one where we reside.
For fans of Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, Cyclobe, Current 93, the synth works of Burzum, Secret Stairways, Era 1 Mortiis, Ulver, Coil, Loreena McKennitt, and Enya.
