I love the mix of icy, warm, and spacey keyboards here. The feel reminds me of the darker side of Tangerine Dream (I’m glad I’m not the only one who still remembers them!). The lights blink endlessly, off and on, red and green, in this urban hell of isolation we have brought upon ourselves. But the constant motion is also soothing; a looping process of becoming, evolving, starting again, forever.
"Silently the tower burns.
Swallowing the darkness from within.
A blinding torch buried deep in the sands of a sealess shore.
Cold light stretching its fingers across pools of liquid flesh.
Clutching at the slowly shifting bones of a million dead.
Your eyes slide from their sockets.
Yet still the sight remains.
Yet still the stench remains.
Yet still the screams remain.
Resounding from within.
Not even a whisper to your name."
Offermose channels the liquid light of a million souls.
Casting dark repetitive spells, summoning long forgotten apparitions from the ever-flowing mist of eternity.
After two EPs and the critically and publicly acclaimed debut album “Mørkt Forår” (2018), Offermose is back with a new offering, ‘Stilhedens Tårn’. The sophomore album due on October 16th of this year.
Disonant howls from the charred ruins of the Berlin School era, penetrates the heavy fog of the Dungeon Synth lineage.
The edges of our comprehension burns.
Poisonous black smoke evaporates into cosmic emptiness.
This is the coming of a new Dark Age.
