DESCRIPTION

Copenhagen's LLNN have created "a bleak soundtrack to a cinematic, post-apolocalyptic landscape, or indeed a grim and rainy Monday in June", TERRORIZER said about their stunning debut album „Loss“, which was released 1 year ago through Pelagic Records. The massively heavy. tightly-woven sonic fabric that these 4 young Danes create has been critically acclaimed throughout the European press landscape. The „Marks“ material which forms their part of this split album was written (and partially selfreleased) before „Loss“ -- but the first scrunching riff of opening track „The Guardian“, trudging along the simple and relentless drums until Christian Bonnesen's truculent vocals take the song to the next level of blackened intensity, make it 100% clear that this material is in no way any less mature than the debut's'. Much like on „Loss“, the wavering drone synths that are effortlessly merged with a raw hardcore-driven darkness define the subtle idiosyncratic nuances of LLNN's very unsubtle, painfully overwhelming sound. „Wovoka’s musical volleys are both panoramically expansive and crushingly claustrophobic“, LA WEEKLY wrote about these 4 dark souls from the West Coast. Emerging from a near 2-year slumber since debut album “Saros” saw the light of day, WOVOKA are contributing one single 18- minute opus to this album, continuing right where LLNN have left off. With compositions of truly epic proportions which transcend the cliches of heavy music, the band has scorched their position in the Los Angeles underground as one of the most volatile, unrelenting acts in the area. WOVOKA have understood that true heaviness lies in reduction – reduction of tempo, reduction of a musical idea to its core, to its bleak essence. Lyrically, „Traces“ is transgressing the nature of grief that comes from loss, in a fierce representation of the sheer emotional weight of fear, and the finality of greeting the end of one’s mortal coil. Belgian artist Ammo was commissioned to create the stunning artwork, which perfectly reflects the music on this release.
