Summoning the Phoenix

Dotflac I see Summoning The Phoenix as the journey of a lone person in a spaceship.

Lots of sounds remind me the kind of ambience we find in a starship, like the roaring of the reactors or the beeps from the control panels. In the other hand, the absence of rhythm, the omnipresence of drones and the reverberation suggest the infinity of the cosmos and the slowing down of the course of time in the void.

The last track goes epic and orchestral, a way to mark the pending evolution of the story.

Advised. Favorite track: Echoes of a Vanished World.

"Summoning the Phoenix" is the second album of Zalys, the project of humanoid M, eight tracks of space/dark ambient mixed with symphonic elements, industrial touches and a sci-fi edge.

"Summoning the Phoenix" is the future of humanity, a path where all surviving humans can complete their rebirth. A deep and cold journey in space with paranormal activities, strange meetings, dark contemplations and wonderful visions, introduced both by celestial moments but also disturbing and terrifying ones.

"This dark travel through the galaxies will surely be a hazy one with warp holes of dark matter overlying but it will bring such a nice and wonderful pleasurable experience" - Desolation Infinite, 9/10

"Insaisissables et magnétiques, les soundscapes que l'auditeur va parcourir se voilent d'un leurre d'immobilité qui, à son insu, l'emmènent fort loin, au-delà de tout, le font traverser dimensions et autres univers parallèles sur un mode contemplatif." - Et L'Hiver Dansait


released July 25, 2013
