CHVE: Rasa

This one totally came out of the blue to me, but it appears to be a solo project of Colin H. Van Eeckhout from Belgian sludge metal band Amenra, as well as a few other metal bands I’ve never heard of. This album has nothing to do with metal whatsoever. It’s a slow-moving, 30 minute atmospheric song which features hurdy gurdy, bodhran, a stripped-down drum kit, and layers of vocals. The words “I will only rise until I fall” appear in the artwork, and those seem to be the only actual lyrics on the album. Basically, if Dead Can Dance recorded a half-hour droned out song with limited equipment, it might sound like this. Not really, though, because he doesn’t sound like Lisa or Brendan. The point is, it sounds really, really lovely, and you should listen to it.
