Aluk Todolo “Descension” (2007)

Minimalism obscure, the Way of the Ancestors:
Hallucinogenic haunting black filth at the bottom of an occult well.
Simplistic ritual motorik drums, monotonous dissonant plodding bass figures… psychotic cavernous sounds from what used to be a guitar, explosions of grating noises washing back and forth in the darkness, sharp drones crawling at a distance, in the deep…
Unhealthy and damp, a slow ritual dance of demons, hideous ghouls feasting silently, the trance of the undead… ALUK TODOLO, the Way of the Ancestors, is the ancestral cult of the Torajan people of Suwalesi (Indonesia), animistic and ancestor-worshipping with immense funereal rites and amazing architecture… or it is the sound of a spiritual nightmare in four suites trampling through unknown terrain in your deepest subconcious.
