With the sound of a bowl a journey begins through an aural landscape of imagination and mysticism. Imagine a spirit transformed into a single breath, woods that become alive through vibrations from the earth and water that electrifies nature and bends its laws. If the previous Necrophorus album Drifting in Motion was a bit icy and stiff, elínrós is a warm and animated being. Peter Andersson, also known from the Cold Meat Industry act raison d’être, has created four beautiful compositions that blends and evolves into eternal tranquillity. Included on the album is also a re-mix of The Source of Underwater Bleakness (originally released on the Last Bleak Days compilation). Experience elínrós and life will simply not be the same anymore.
