Kammarheit – The Starwheel

Two years after “Asleep And Well Hidden”, Kammarheit from Sweden is back with a new dark ambient cd on Cyclic Law. An album with a evocative and melancholic style. It contains over three quarters of an hour of accessible dark soundscapes, with not too heavy drones and melodic layers of sound washing over you. Various subtle percussive details and field samples are added to create a rich and mysterious framework.

“The Starwheel” is very serene and very atmospheric, It reminds me of some work by Raison d’Etre, for instance on a track like ‘Klockstapeln’, which has a solemn, almost religious atmosphere. One of the best Cyclic Law releases so far. Comes in a suitable black & white digipack with a small poster.
