(Antifrost)

The collaboration between Jazzkammer’s Marhaug and Reynols’ Courtis is 45 minutes of speckless radiation starting from utter silence and slowly turning into an exploration of cavities revealing much about our sense of resistance to aural attacks. Low frequencies wavering in and out the picture are paralleled by a continuous, stinging high pitch which constitutes the main presence throughout the record; impressive solar winds and worrying rumbling soundquakes put our nerves through serious ordeals, especially if volume is more than soft. This music worms through your guard like something destined to do damage, bearing a sense of inexorability, alerting too late about something we won’t be able to escape from. It’s without a doubt one of the most intense and beautiful Antifrost releases, too.
