about

Industry8 and Worms Of The Earth present Sitra Achra, their second release together. With this release Worms Of The Earth have challenged themselves to expand their sound . Worms Of The Earth design their soundscapes around deep tones, vocal samples of sacred and profane origins, and dense atmospheric drones. The overall effect is a contemplative atmosphere with a palpable feeling of tension. On Sitra Achra, Worms Of The Earth expand their sound by adding hand percussion and ritual instruments. These ritual instruments and hand percussion; bone, gong, bell and djembe, add an additional human sound that punctuates the meditative drones. The djembe magnifies the deep sounds. The bell adds a clear tone identifiable above the gauzy din. These developments not only remove the sense of isolation but allow identification. This development in Worms Of The Earth's sound is what defines Sitra Achra, a quest to the Quilpoth. A journey in sound accompanied by the nuanced illustration by Art Zen founder Salt.

SITRA ACHRA is the fourth full length and second dark ambient album, acting as the spiritual successor to 2013’s incredibly well received AZAL’UCEL, for ethno-industrial/ritual ambient project WORMS OF THE EARTH. Already drawing frequent comparisons to dark ambient masters Raison d’etre, Sephiroth, and In Slaughter Natives, on this record Worms explores even murkier and more illusory aural territory. Ancient, chthonic tribal and gritty industrial elements coalesce with layers of arcane drones, ethereal choirs, and transcendent eastern melodies to open the gateway to the darkest corners of the human psyche in an attempt to explore and understand the inverse realm of primordial chaotic energies, the Qliphoth. SITRA ACHRA features a greater focus on organic, ritual instruments played by hand - including djembe, gong, bells, bones, etc, along with a plethora of hardware synthesizers. Another focal point is the creation of deep tracks with numerous subtle complexities – headphone listening is strongly encouraged! SITRA ACHRA is by far the most hauntingly atmospheric, powerful, and spiritually potent material crafted by the project to date which continues the classic, visionary sound of the late Cold Meat Industry.

Limited edition of 262 hand-numbered copies.
