This band, that could easily compete and perhaps win in the categories “unpronounceable band name” and “longest CD title”, features members of Absu, The Soil Bleed Black and Melechesh. The fourth album was inspired by sounds of the Middle East, instrumentation and rhythms from traditional Arabic/African music, combined with modern, occasionally Jazz-like synthesizer sounds. Close your eyes and be carried away to the legendary Sumeria, into a tent in central Sahara, where drums, the sound of the wind, desert sand, the chants of a preacher and the (distorted) voice of a story teller lift you into another dimension... This magical mysterious CD will inevitably have a fascinating effect, you just have to listen and explore its meditative qualities. Equmanthorn themselves define their style as “pure ritual magic(k)”. I can only confirm that.
