"Beyond the Crying Era is one massively immersive and entrancing score built on ominous, eerie soundscapes of darkly, grainy, and slowly moving elegance. Winter-Light is an indie label based in Netherlands and specializing in deep electronic soundscapes and any related genre coming from the shifting ambient music galaxy. They are active since 2014 and notably renowned for having released materials from Rapoon, Seetyca and Inner Vision Laboratory - clear veterans of dark drone textures and eerily electronic minimalism. They are now welcoming the new Nimh release for a beautiful physical limited edition. This album gathers a series of tracks composed and recorded during several years and which has been first issued as vinyl edition in 2011.
For newcomers, Nimh can be considered as one of the most emblematic and inspiring drone, noise, and dark ambient projects coming from Italy. Giuseppe Verticchio (aka Nimh) has demonstrated a great compositional ability in many fields of musical experimentation. His palette of sonic textures embraces musical aesthetics from post industrialism but also challenges territories with an interest for non-Western cultures, sacred ritual arts and sound researches in ethno-religious music. Beyond the Crying Era is one massively immersive and entrancing score built on ominous, eerie soundscapes of darkly, grainy, and slowly moving elegance. This CD reissue is enriched by a couple of reverberated, chilling, hypnagogic drones, and utterly bleak noises - sometimes admitting devotional looped study based on acoustic patterns - as in the closing track Sounds from Alasya. All in all Beyond the Crying Era is an enthralling and ravishing sound excursion through delicate, immaculate, and sensitive doomscapes that can easily ravish all fans of downtempo, chilling, and timbral drone music with an extra meaning, and an amazing transportive quality for personal voyages deep into the mind." - Philippe Blache / Igloomag
