"The storm bells chime" is the music for all the raging storms flickering out into the great nothing that make our lives.
Conceived by SOL-founder Emil Brahe and brought into being through a collaboration by four selected members of black metal, punk rock and electronic ambient projects in Aarhus, Denmark.
Created with synthesizers, piano, twang guitar and manipulated sounds recorded at the harbour of Aarhus as well as vocals by three vocalists including throat singing and gregorian chanting.
The result is an emotionally and atmospherically charged album crossing genres around dark doom metal, esoteric drones and neofolk. The lyrics reflect on loss and childhood and how the two interact when one grow older and succumbs to loathing.

Why do people like this music? Because they hate how it carries them away? How it transfers sound into inner peace? How it is right on, as a combination of all right sounds and tempo; like a violent peace that it is?

You never know what you're going to get clicking on a never heard before band, but I am so glad I did here. a gorgeous album, cinematic in a way, dark, cold, it tells a story even though I don't understand the lyrics. Fantastic music. amorphisgarden
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
