about

Trepaneringsritualen return to Cold Spring with an album-long ritual working entitled ᛉᛦ — Algir; eller Algir i Merkstave. On this record — constructed from a series of rituals designated to guide the last ceasing of ᛏᛇᚱᚫ ᚾ ∴ ᚾ ∴ ᚾ — T × R × P is manifest in its most obscure form. Sonically minimal yet devastating in emotional impact, this working lets the listener grasp the last vestiges of Nifl and Múspell, and with them as weapon and beacon traverse the Night. ᛉᛦ reveals a barren landscape where crooked paths lead onward, through soot black veils to a point of radiant light where all that is is Union & Dissolution.

Dedicated to our sister, ᛏᛇᚱᚫ ᚾ ∴ ᚾ ∴ ᚾ.

T × R × P channelled through the forms of ᚦᛟᚦ ᚷᛁᚷ, ᚾᛟᚺ ⩝⚭⩝, and ᛏᛇᚱᚫ ᚾ ∴ ᚾ ∴ ᚾ at the 63rd Link, 4 & Rising, and Zone Rouge December 2017 e.v. — July 2018 e.v. Mastered by Martin Bowes. Artwork by Nullvoid.

I tordön rister marken och i ett enda andetag rämnar alla världar. Den arma kropp som en gång med knapphet höll samman faller nu itu, och itu, och itu. Tills varje beståndsdel blir till Ingenting. Likt en vålnad utan hud och blod och anda — utan köttets förtvivlan — kastar jag mig — handlöst och av vanvett vredgad — i ditt vidunderliga gap.

Här, i gudars sotsvarta skymning, där natt och dag förgås, hörs alla ord och stäv för första gången tydligt. Här tar alla vaga förnimmelser sin sanna form och stiger ur ett disigt skimmer.

Här, i alla solars gyllne gryning, strålar tusen — åter tusen, pilar av det mest förblindande ljus, mot en enda punkt. Skapandet, och varandet, och blivandet löses upp där prisman splittrar ljuset. Framför mig syns vägen klar och uppenbar.

Reviews:

"…this is classic occult/ritual ambient, deeply embedded with esoteric streams of power and cold, marrow-freezing winds and atmospherics. These are the invocations practised in the darkest chthonic regions, in the cold wastes of the north, where night reigns over us much of the time and the cold stealthily steals warmth. Here is where malignity and enmity lie, jealous of light and fecundity, colour and profusion… a coherent gathering of and communion with outside forces” (1208 North Fuller Ave Apt 1)

“The music on this CD is something that I, the non-ritualistic man, enjoy very much. It is dark and intense, and very spooky. The music consists of slow drum sounds, trumpet-like blowing, Tibetan bells treatments and electronics creating this intense atmosphere around it. This is of course music to play during some kind of ritual… surely in very dark and very natural surroundings – a forest no doubt, on a very dark night” (Vital Weekly)

“…a collection of unsettling sounds, sparsely placed chimes, whispers, horns, something resembling a waterphone, and deep bassy drones carried out in two ordeals… it really speaks more to the primal ritualistic elements of the band’s genesis. Throughout the record, the sense of tension and encroaching fear never leaves… that same sense of inexplicable queasiness we feel when hearing certain unexplained sounds in nature or haunted areas, setting our teeth on edge… this release provides the perfect soundtrack for settling down into some place dark, letting the shadows overcome your thoughts, and peering anew at new possibilities for the future as one who rises from the ashes, and still hasn’t lost their lust for the fire.” (The Covenant)

“Trepaneringsritualen nos plantea un sueño negro. “Algir; eller Algir i Merkstave” es un mapa conceptual trazado mediante el sonido en el que el artista muestra el camino que se ha de seguir para lograr la autonomía espiritual con respecto al cuerpo muerto. Interesante e ineluctablemente oscuro... Thomas Martin Ekelund vuelve a ofrecernos algo impactante y misterioso... un álbum en el que se manifiesta un dark ambient puro de orientación netamente ritual... formulando de esta manera horizontes yermos y asoladores.” (5/5, Nomelody)

“Hablar sobre Trepaneringritualen es hablar de lo supremo, de lo pionero, de la innovación musical transformada en belleza sonora… su nuevo álbum “ᛉᛦ – Algir; eller Algir i Merkstave” vuelve a reforzar mi más que positiva visión analítica sobre su obra...una de las experiencias musicales más intensas que un melómano puede sentir en un álbum editado en este año 2019.” (Lux Atenea)

“...un'atmosfera degna della miglior colonna sonora da film horror.... “ᛉᛦ -Algir; eller Algir i Merkstave” sembra dipingere inquietanti e minimali scenari post mortem, un vero e proprio viaggio nel regno di Hel, dea norrena della morte. Tra pause e silenzi, Trepaneringsritualen ci consegna un album realmente terrorizzante, un altro ottimo lavoro capace di creare il giusto climax e farsi così colonna sonora delle ultime fasi del Ragnarök, il crepuscolo degli Dei e anche dell’umanità per come la conosciamo.” (Ondarock)
