*200 copies limited edition* Since the start in 2008 Jon Wesseltoft and Lasse Marhaug, aka Tongues of Mount Meru, have released a set of intense and mind tripping longform pieces. Their music often almost seemingly static and gradually building it’s intensity over long streches of time. This is music that demands concentration, and hypnotically drill into the awareness of the listener. At times abrasive and
intense, but also beautiful and calmly introspective. Last year they released the culmination of older work with the monumental 4 cd box Naga Mountain (Holidays Records) with material consisting from 2008 to 2011. After a longer hiatus they started recording again in the spring and summer of 2021. First came the over 2 hour long Lalit (2:14 version), being based around the Indian raga Lalit, on the Italian Superpang label.

Now they return with the latest culmination from those sessions with the 100 minute piece Kalpa.
This being probably their most heavy and crude outing to date. With more focus on actively fusing larger sections of almost clustered sound together with tonal activity. This without loosing the consistency of the longer stretches of overarching microtonal interaction.

At times sounding like a churning minimalist nightmare ritual, but on the other end, a beautiful but heavy duty trance inducing drupad veena performance on half speed.
