On their first chapter in the Submental series, ambient duo Thomas Weiss and Mathias Grassow take us on a minimal and deep journey inward.
The 50-minute uninterrupted outcome is a blend of nature soundscapes and expansive, minimal and thick dronescapes morphing along, addressing slightly gothic atmospheres occasionally.
Although the mood kicks off and remains dark during the whole ride, a blissful shimmer airs from the huge inner depths and misty plains explored here that keep evolving slowly as its large mass flows onward.
As such “Submental Vol. 1” makes a recommended recording for ambient-drone aficionados who love to wander beyond and seek immersion within.
