(Check Tomentosa and Retrograde)


M. Akers "Mythical Abyss" c32. Synthesizers, Drum Machines, and Guitar recorded direct to 4-track cassette. 

Mythical Abyss opens with a swirling, street-crawling battle hymn to pace your nocturnal footsteps through the blaggard-lined alleyways of a neglected city edge before Shanghaiing you into manning a hulking prison ship to the dead of the ocean. The driving wind of the electrical storm, a pealing foghorn, and the oscillating tones of casimir engines become your only constants on the brutal, rain-swept crossing before a chance encounter with an unmanned deuterium rig signals the next leg of the journey. Crew members slowly disappear as exploration of the lifeless mechanical shell, humming with vast banks of dials and switches, leads you into a solemn labyrinth of howling underground caverns deep below the water. Desperate for light as your torch dies down, you break through a sealed wall to a hidden nerve center that triggers a rush of dopamine into your panicking mind. You watch the esoteric vision plane set into the ancient wall, hoping for safe passage from the delirium, until a blinding, rapturous light takes over and all is calm. - Andrew King (
