Sky Burial – “Aegri Somnia” – [Utech]

Sky Burial is an ancient Tibetan funerary practice involving a ritualistic dissection of the human body and displaying of the body parts on top of a mountain to expose it to the elements. Aegri Somnia is a Latin phrase meaning “troubled dreams.” This new release from Utech Records echoes both these concepts with astral navigations through overwhelmingly vacuous drones complements of Michael Page and garnished with the searing saxophone seance of Hawkwind’s Nik Turner. Track 1 is an interstellar journey through catacombs of a decrepit mass of stone and ice. A piercing brilliance radiates from the infinitely distant core emitting a surreal coating of otherworldly delirium that opens into a cataclysmic collapse at the center. Echoes of a subway sax screamer emerge, calming and caressing the subconscious discordance. Immerse yourself in the terrifying vastness of space. In track 2 demonic dementia erupts from the nightmarish depths of of your being, tearing at the last vestiges of your physical reality until all that is left is the shimmering void of existential bliss.

We are all empty vessels…
