This is when the ineffable comes on as sound, as echoes from an abyss where technology has finally fused with spirituality in a mystic dance that cannot yet be imagined. Sometimes an artist manages to travel back in time, reaching that future from where little can be brought back other than these snaking synths, creeping choirs, monolithic bass lines and the lost electronic voices of ascending civilizations.
Slow down, lay back and close your eyes. Let yourself be moved by the soft yet willful vibrations brought to you by the beautiful composition of Greek mastermind, MIKTEK. This is for those evenings spent sunken in a comfy couch or armchair, eardrums spellbound by the caress of musical magic.
You can listen to the melody for free, in good quality, on BandCamp, which is one of the best websites when it comes to supporting artists. You can also purchase the song (or album) from this same location. And in case you’re wondering, yes, I did purchase MIKTEK’s album :).
This brutally beautiful song is a magnificent sample of the best gothic metal has to offer. Infernal guitars, harsh vocals, dreamy soundscapes, clean vocals, head banging percussion, female vocals and choirs, it’s all here. It’s an adventurous composition that crams a lot of action in 5 minutes.
Sink in, lose yourself in these echoes of melancholy. What would life be without its ups and downs? But don’t worry, a beautiful voice and a dreamy guitar will keep you firmly anchored to beauty.
