A highly individual black metal release from the enigmatic one man entity Murmuüre. Like many strands of French black metal, Murmuüre sounds like nothing else. Part soundtrack, part audio assault. Blasting, blown out, fuzzy, heavy, epic.
"All Murmuüre material is based on a one hour guitar improvisation from November 2006. Selected parts were further edited to fit a rhythmic structure, and merged with additional layers of sound. This process of mixing & endless re-writing took 3 years until final completion. The percussions are a mixture of the original programmed drums, and some (extremely re-edited) additional live drumming. Vocals were recorded during a cathartic trance at a sacred place in the forest, with a mini-disc recorder. Being almost inaudible in the music, they're strictly conceived as a vocal sigil technique, a vehicle for intent. The 30 minutes long, self-titled release is possibly the first and last Murmuüre record. I've put so much in it that it will be hard to match, and there would be no point in doing something more just for the sake of it." - Murmuüre, October 2010.
Originally presented as a black vinyl LP with printed centre labels, housed in a hand screened raw card folder cover (featuring the original, rearranged cassette layout), with a minimal A4 insert, in poly bag. Edition of 500, split release with Cold Void Emanations.
