Stilbon Is Dead LP (Green vinyl)
Midira 23 / UK / 2016
After an intense journey through different variation of doom music in the last half decade, Architeuthis Rex return with their very own version of doom. “Stilbon is Dead” is their most concentrated batch of impulsive sounds, breaking out of your speakers. It´s just a few seconds warning footstep field recordings at the beginning of the album, if you overstep this moment you will find yourself in a doom cave with accentuated guitars, beautiful siren vocals, unseizable synthiesounds and very erratic drums. The idea of a dead Stilbon symbolizes both the concept of darkness and gleaminess, which can be traced in the metallic light of the world in the Antropocene Era.
