How great and exalted this album is !
Naas Alcameth, the mastermind behind the beast NIGHTBRINGER, has amazing dreams, full of horrid shadows, white voices, and visions of nights beyond nights. He has used his terrific new creation, AKHLYS, as a vector to share this black onirism with listeners.
AKHLYS is a gateway (gateways upon gateways… gateways upon gateways…), an opening to the sound of his own haunted dreams, the occult world of hallucinations incarnated in music.
"The Dreaming I" is a fascinating and grandiose sonic monument consisting of five otherworldly compositions, five dark tunnels of fury and intensity in which to lose yourself, filled with dangerous and hypnotic melodies.
This first album is a unique moment in timeless time, a delicious abyss of dark and ethereal enchantment that takes Black Metal into another magnificent dimension. Gateways upon gateways...
I dreamt of a building of shadowy sounds
With labyrinthine melodies
All crimson and gold
All ruin and decay
It is a great feeling when we see our darkest dreams alive in another person...
