about

Inspired by the lifecycle of a tree—from seed to recycled paper—the Limbus suite sprawls skyward while rooting itself deep in the rocky murk. Drawing parallels between the root systems of plants and our own limbic system, harsh, bowed guitar drives over delicate, leafy arpeggios backed by percussion textures ranging from sparse to pummelling.

"The representation of tree life cycles is mostly very dark here, with sludge metal signifiers – in the beginning, very repetitive chord progressions with layers of distorted and bowed guitar, and various heavily reverbed percussion interjections ... One interpretation here is that the dark, brooding music is somehow a representation of what a tree “sees” in its lifetime, i.e. human activity. As the sections pace onward, the suite seems to get more organized somehow, as if the tree is gathering wisdom or looking more and more forward to the next part of its life cycle. Or that the entrance of piano actually occurs after the tree’s death, and the brighter sections represent its decay or afterlife, as it were – which would be an interesting commentary on life and death per se. Either way, the sparseness of the final section (XIII) is an unmistakable hint at ultimate nothingness. As with all Arachnidiscs releases, rendered and packaged with extraordinary devotion and craft." ~ Foxy Digitalis
