The mighty Eternal Tapestry have another fantastic album coming out November 13th, care of Thrill Jockey, called A World Out Of Time. I’ve been listening to it for the past week or so and loving it. It might be my favorite from them yet. Full cosmic Atman!
Take a taste…
And methinks you should pre-order the vinyl now and get a bonus CDr called Prometheus Rising thrown in for good measure!
Some details about the bonus CDr :
“Prometheus Rising is a CD-R that plays like a full album. Clocking in at 42 minutes, the six tracks span the full extent of Eternal Tapestry’s existence. The disc opens with “The Prowler” – a set standard that the band has been playing live for years, previously unavailable. Title track “Prometheus Rising” is purposeful and driven as it leads into “Bridge Over an Abyss” – a psychedelic, ominous cosmic chasm of loose, foreboding darkness. The disc closes with live track “Blots and Blurs,” an epic burner of a track, crescendoing over the course of 13 minutes in impressive fashion.”
Dig this vid for “Apocalypse Troll” from A World Out Of Time and see if you recognize a riff:
“A World Out of Time, Portland quintet Eternal Tapestry’s second full-length of 2012, is a new kind of album for the band. As opposed to previous efforts, which were culled from many hours of recordings, it was recorded as a whole. The resulting record, while not restricted to the four minute song, has the focus and the flow that only music conceived as a narrative can. Taking inspiration from groups like Faust and Algarnas Tradgard, the album unfolds as a collage, the most salient elements of their sound sewn into a seamless patchwork. In the process, the group has constructed an incredibly dynamic album, juxtaposing expansive improvised sections with their most deliberate material yet.”
