Those familiar with the extensive discography by German multi-instrumentalist Mathias Grassow will be acquainted to his vast and deep-listening type of music.
"Dämmerung", depicted as one long flowing epos dedicated to the sun and her voyage across the burning evening skies of Northern Europe, is a vast landscape of intense ambient drone tapestries shifting from dark to lighter-shaded atmospheres.
The highly minimal sounding 70-minute outcome with faint environmental sounds evolves very slowly as it journeys gently through profound ambient caverns. Its sound spectrum is massive and at times rather overwhelming when the hypnotizing sound tapestries start building on and on, nicely mirroring the grandness and impact of the heat rays of the sun through all its veins. I absolutely love the intense sphere created on the mysterious "Nightfall" and the ethereal, elevating mood captured on the final piece "Entering the Between".
"Dämmerung" makes a nice candidate to make your mind float and wander to places beyond. Grassow-fans will love this for sure and can purchase the release this without pre-listening.
