the corrupting sea

Apologies are due to the Corrupting Sea whose recently released debut full length ‘Samatta’ we’ve erroneously managed to thus far neglect, so while we fire up the steam powered gramophone in readiness for fond words to fly, here’s a sneak peek from a new forthcoming EP due to attract admiring glances sometime next month through the somewhere cold imprint. This is the simply monumental ‘moving forward’ – a sonic colossus occupying a nine minute stay, a brooding behemoth cut sublimely within a stirring quietly majestic wide screen framing, slow to burn almost hypnotic, the initial moments scored with a claustrophobic tension almost blooded in apocalyptic portent. Shy of the 5 minute mark an awakening, soon the darkening clouds break and softly fade, choral keys emerge exacting a peacefully graceful radiance and calm where once there was a shadowfalling stillness, the effect much like the onset of a cavalry on the distant horizon, reference wise, the stately grandeur of the fading moments of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark’s ‘Stanlow’ clipped, frozen and magnified tenfold.
