Requiem For The Three Kharites
Aurora Borealis abx039
YRSEL is a collaboration between The Austrasian Goat, primarily an experimental Doom/Black Metal project, and ONDO, an equally prolific dark electronica project. Though hailing from different musical genres and from France and Sweden respectively, the two artists bonded following a split release on DIY label Burning Emptiness.
YRSEL create complex, multi-layered and highly atmospheric music that fully explodes the genres of drone, doom and electronica resulting in a glorious glacial melt of sound and texture. Conceptually, Requiem For The Three Kharites deals with the Three Graces (Kharites) of Greek mythology; symbols of grace, beauty, pleasure and the
creative impulse. A requiem for the loss of culture in an ever spiralling material world, a twilight ode to the mythic manifestation of our higher facilities. In this context the drones, glitches and whispers form the perfect soundtrack to such dark materials. The album dissolves slowly from its thunderous opening, finally leaving the listener in a deep void of palpable loss.
