Based in Greece, Mohammad make long-form drone works that explore the lower end of the frequency spectrum while retaining an intense emotional capacity. The results are monumental, slow-moving blocks of sound, both daunting and musical. The sheer weight of these recordings is impressive, the interplay of the musicians and instruments staggering, this end result being an album rich with harmonious abstraction which highlights years of dedication to their unique path. Following on from their previous releases (the highly-regarded Roto Vildblomma CD and the Spiriti 3LP box, both on Antifrost) Som Sakrifis follows the trio through three tracks of deep space experimentation where the acoustic and electronic blend together as a monumental whole. Listening to Som Sakrifis takes the listener on an expansive journey through the netherworld of the low range while retaining distinct traces of musicality. The time and space in these works have a logic more akin to that of Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr than any contemporary music references. Monumental monochromatic movement is the order of the day. Sit back, strap in and let these fine explorers take you way out into the nether world. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, pressed on 140 gram vinyl. Packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silkscreened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas.
