Anji Cheung ‘ Daughter of Fortitude’ review at Plaguehaus

Nice esoterically minded review of our very own A.C’s opus ‘Daughter of Fortitude’ over on Plaguehaus.

“Side A begins with ‘Sky the Blackness of the Pupil of My Eye’. A trance-inducing, pulsing bass line sets things in motion, beckoning all participants to the genesis of The Ritual. A gentle, feminine voice drifts in and out, wordless, an aural frankincense filling the room. Crisp waves of static twist and roll, nothing too harsh, like a sea of burning tinder, smoldering in the distance. Subtle percussion, the gently tap of a cymbal keeps the procession moving. Mesmerizing and sublime, it finishes leaving all devotees wanting more.”

““440” emerges as a phosphorescent shimmering through the dark. This immediately brought to mind the works of the great 70’s Berlin School musicians like Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze. A pulsating flight through space, I could listen to this on repeat for hours.”

Suffice to say, the Plaguehaus says yes.
