LETHE "AND COME DEATH SHALL I FORGET" 2CDr (AOW 02)
Lethe delves deep into the void in their second set of recordings for Altar of Waste, this time conjuring up vast stretches of near nothingness that float towards the outer vestiges of the cosmic expanse. Dark patches of the weighted slumberous gorge themselves at the trough of black opulence and recede into the infinite blankness, forever wandering further into the end. Memory is a liability, constantly under attack by the soporifics of being, a slave to the sorrows of merely existing. There is no pleasure, there is no joy. Strap on the headphones, kill the lights and shiver under your blankets. "And Come Death Shall I Forget" is a map of a vacuum, a place barren, hollow, and near total collapse. A different kind of haunting excess, death ambient to totality. Packaged in a DVD case designed and constructed by Cory Strand in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies. $15 ppd. in the United States. Overseas, please inquire as to exact cost.
