Now, here's something truly amazing. Petrychor just came out with an incredible new album this month, "Makrokosmos". Give it a good listen or six right HERE.
But, for the sake of this exercise we'll be taking a look at their previous release "Effigies and Epitaphs" which, likewise, is incredible. The band describes the previous album as such…
Effigies and Epitaphs is the first full-length album from Petrychor. Crafted as one piece in multiple movements, the album sums up the multi-genre development of the project over a six month period. Ethereal vocals and various folk musics give way to windy guitars, meditative tonal noise and tribal percussion.
Cataclysmic catharsis in remembrance of the scorched earth.
That description is eerily accurate, just as the music has the ability to eerily wheel itself into the darkest crevices of your mind bringing out both wonder and aural pleasure alike.
If this sounds like a good time to you, you're in luck! "Effigies and Epitaphs" is available for a "name your price" download via Bandcamp! It's highly recommended you go enjoy that effort for the price of your choosing and buy "Makrokosmos" as well! You can't beat a $2 price tag for amazing, new music.
