Camryn Marquez There is something to be said about the metaphysical: that which transcends subjective interpretation of the world, that great mother which births the axioms of reality. Within us is an inherent faith & confidence that we are living life and that it is worth living, despite how inextricably tied together existence and suffering are. The rituals we engage in and that our ancestors engaged in are our attempt to find peace with our inner savagery, which will not quiet its roar, and our existentially aware and interpretive mind. This music should remind us that we have both of these entities constantly conversing within us Favorite track: Father Fenris.

Following a recent appearance on Drone Mind Vol 5, Ukrainian act Monocube makes his way into the halls of Malignant for his second, full length recording, featuring nine tracks and just over an hour worth of material ensconced in shadowy, enveloping atmospheres, intact with all the hallmarks of classic dark ambient: arcing, cinematic textures, elegiac melody, and time-stretched drift. As The Rituals progresses, it becomes increasingly populated by something even more ominous and bleak; undertones of ancient tribalism and fiery invocations arise, mixed with the blackened soot of distant factory churn and the burning remnants of an ashen wasteland. Featuring collaborative tracks with Treha Sektori, Apocryphos, and Asmorod, The Rituals is an immersive and compelling work, seamlessly tied together by a binding embrace of darkness.
