Svart Records presents the simultaneous release of two new albums by the esoteric exploration unit Arktau Eos. 'Ioh-Maera' is available on CD only whereas 'Unworeldes' is a vinyl-only release.
Ioh-Maera & Unworeldes present the latest steps in the evolution of Arktau Eos' "archaic elemental music" towards new and unknown spheres; their previous output has been received exceptionally well across a variety of genres, with its praises sung by enthusiasts into experimental/minimalistic music, dark ambient, and the old-school ritual music typified by early Ain Soph or the Nekrophile Records roster from the mid-’80s. Arktau Eos work in a specially built studio-laboratory recording mostly on real, old-time reel tape, utilising an array of unusual, ethnic and self-built instruments, as well as synths from the ‘60s and ‘70s in an intuitive or a mediumistic manner. It is a highly original venture into still largely unexplored territory, which has also drawn considerable interest outside of specifically music-related circles – as testified by the recent appearance of the group at Seattle's Esoteric Book Conference.
