Sum of R :: Orga (Cyclic Law)

The ensemble is elegant, shimmering and emotionally elevated, combining sacred elements to sorrowful bleak industrialism.

Sum of R is one project hailing from Switzerland and created by Reto Mäder. After two solid releases published by the Milwaukee based Utech Records they are now welcomed by Cyclic law. This project is a real curiosity, challenging and pushing the borders of musical belongings thanks to a vast magma of influences. One aesthetic line is the ritualistic-invocatory spiritual nature of the music. About the orchestration and stylistic schemas we navigates somewhere between post-(doom) metal, dark ambient realms and evocative dronescapes. The album delivers a catchy and nightly immersive ceremony along funereal chords, heavenly sounds and textured melodious lines in a modern classical style. The ensemble is elegant, shimmering and emotionally elevated, combining sacred elements to sorrowful bleak industrialism. Imagine if the monolithic epic doom-rock pieces of Earth or Godspeed You! Black Emperor resonate into a pagan-ritual ambient sounding procession in touch with the divine nature and you’ll have a first idea. Massive, enthralling and mystical. Fans of entrancing dark drone ritualism will find here a key release.

Orga is available on Cyclic Law.
