A dualistic epic of maximum length, Hemispheres of Desolation is comprised of two 55-minute tracks which are divided into Eastern and Western hemispheres, creating environments of utter desolation at a pace that is truly tectonic. Continuing in the low & slow tradition of his previous efforts as well as recording the piece at an “appropriate” fidelity, DAS quietly crafts minimal drone layers of oscillators & guitar to build a dense wall of dreary seclusion. Guaranteed to aid in sleeping uncomfortably and soundwave decimation to your brain during headphone listening.
Dubbed onto German-made, genuine BASF Emtec Chrome+ chromium dioxide tape stock.
Recommended at all speeds.
Transparent overlay printed in black and sealed with clear glue dots, wrapped over a clear hardshell case with silver stamped ink on the face containing transparent insert with black printing.
