THE EBONY TOWER "THE TWELVE CAESARS" 12CDR (REGULAR EDITION) (AOW 342)
Latest set of literary-themed walls from longtime AOW ally and label favorite The Ebony Tower, this time dedicated to Suetonius' epic biography/history of Rome's twelve Caesars, a slog through years of degradation, tyranny, perversion, and the occasional act of kindness and goodwill. As usual with Mitchell's work, this is extreme and speaker-shredding wallcraft, meticulously crafted for maximum destruction and void contemplation. Incredible volume, epic length walls, and hyper-caustic tones make for nearly 14 hours of majestic tonal and textural wipeout, the sort of complete and total obliteration the project has become known for. It is always a privilege to release Mitchell's work; "The Twelve Caesars" stands as another untouchable notch in a rapidly growing discography of equally untouchable wall recordings.
This is the Regular Edition of the recording. Packaged in an oversized DVD case with an insert and released in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies. $45 ppd. in the United States, $61 rest of world.
