☼ Lull - Like A Slow River [June 2008 re-post]

Lull was conceived in late '91 by former Napalm Death drummer Mick Harris (who also created the ambient dub outfit Scorn, among other projects) in an attempt to create music that would stretch, if not forsake entirely, the structures of conventional music by developing and exploring sound without beats. Harris' initial foray as Lull into low frequency sound exploration was issued in late '92 under the title "Dreamt About Dreaming" on the respected underground Sentrax label. In between his Scorn commitments, the ever prolific Harris continued to develop Lull by recording and releasing scores of comp tracks and 7''s, as well as full-lengths that each punctuated another stage of his progression.
After a long period of silence, Mick J. Harris returns. He is one of the most important representative of ambient isolationist music ever. "Like A Slow River" is a work characterized by sharp and minimal atmospheres, but also dark, cold and huge, such as big bodies of ice which slowly move carried by an endless river. The five compositions reach the high expectations of the previous works such as "Cold Summer," "Continue," and the "Murder Ballads" trilogy (with Martin Bates). With no doubt, this is the coldest and darkest work ever composed by this pioneer of industrial-ambient music. You all will be led to the oblivion of your existence....the freezing darkness of these glacial night is going to come down on your bodies and'll fall in your deepest sleep with the far echo of glacial runnings....the way to eternity is in front of you.....
Wow, sounds like a party! ;)
