Tales of Dead Cities as described by the Master of Darkness, the Bat himself. For his new album Dead Cities Ah Cama-Sotz created no less then ten descriptive aural landscapes from all over the world; From the solitude of the empty streets of 'Enuma Elish' to the concrete structures which are nothing less then the remains of a reactor meltdown ('Thermonuclear').
There are many stories, myths and legends about the origin of civilization and many of them have their roots in the Middle-East. The ritual and Arabian influences on Dead Cities are a welcome diversion in the current era of straightforward and emotionless thinking. And as with so many other releases from Ah Cama-Sotz, Dead Cities is also a lesson in history and philosophy.
The multitude of influences you will be able to discover on this album are as diverse as the various locations of the Dead Cities. The tracks range from deep ambient with a religious touch to ritual layered structures - sometimes even close to straightforward dub - to technoid industrial epic anthems, bound to make the audience scream - no wait - pray for more.
