Polychronopoulos / Polymeneas-Liontiris / Pavlopoulos - Widdershins [Room40 Promo]

Put out on the circuit via the Australian staple that is the Room40-label is "Widdershins", the first full on collaborational album created by the triumvirate of Greek artists Spyros Polychronopoulos, Thanos Polymeneas-Liontiris and Iakovos Pavlopoulos which all met and connected whilst living abroad put only started working together in this setting after the three of them all relocated to Athens. The result of this cooperation is "Widdershins", a 49 minutes spanning longplayer catering a menu of seven subsequently named cuts - "Widdershins I" to "Widdershins VII" - exploring a realm of what might be named Industrial Ambient / Industrial PostRock or even Industrial FreeJazz armed with a combination of electronic devices, double bass and a variety of percussions, driven by warped, brooding bass drones, an overall feel of electronic doom, bits of Dark Ambient, fever'ish and well ritualistic Tribal drums, intense layers of atmospheric darkness and other forms of spine-tingling, partly electro-acoustic experimentation. Imagine Muslimgauze having a hyperminimalist love child with a band project like Village Of Savoonga and you might get an idea of what this is all about. Check!
