REVIEW 30 - mAncient
Crafted on Garageband and iPhone, mAncient from Norway delivers ethereal genius throughout his 2020 release. The quality is total, a cut above. He calls it "EARTH HOUSE" and that's accurate, it's of this planet but something new and enchanting is offered. It's healing music! And I don't mean twee, it's seriously Zen, awe inspiring.
I love every track, the electronic palette and tempo varies and your mind will travel to deep and mysterious terrains, some clubby and urban, others out of this world. And so... there I was chilled still when "A Star is Reborn @ Hotel Odeon" commenced. A true wow moment!
As an artist mAncient has history, lineage. He's wise, a monk, a healer and make no mistake when his guttural bluesy chanting starts to bubble under the soundscape of this song you will be blown away. No apology for a cliche there! You need to hear this, soak it up, the ancient paths, the compassion, the beauty. Enough said! Check it out. Essential!
