tenhornedbeast - death has no companion (cd)


ARTIST // tenhornedbeast
LABEL // cold spring records (uk)
CAT // csr227cd


Created from the solitude of the high and lonely places, Death Has No Companion uses the TenHornedBeast aesthetic to explore the isolation of inner and outer worlds. Discordant piano chords build to shimmering blizzards of feedback. Drones and tones fall like snow and settle in the frozen landscapes. Strings flutter in the bitter winds. Does the spirit not falter when the Wanderer sees the night fall before him? Lamentation and sorrow. Winter eternal and everlasting. We all must walk the long road alone. Death has no companion. Best known for his '90s work with dark-ambient occultists Endvra, Christopher Walton controls layers of sub-sonic drones and abstract noise to create a vision that is bleaker and darker than its predecessor. Comes in six-panel digipak.
