A Place of Owls – The Oceanic TomesPosted: August 26, 2012
Shrouded in mystery and darkness, this album by the Minneapolis project A Place of Owls recalls the more brooding moments of Brian Eno and the ambient side of the post-rock and post-metal giants. “The Oceanic Tomes” is a series of vast, sweeping soundscapes based on myths and legends of ancient submerged cities around the world. In the author’s words:
The Oceanic Tomes is a soundscape album inspired by the world wide myths and legends that tell of great cities disappearing into the sea.These myths seem to find a hint of credibility on the ocean’s floor where hundreds of ancient monuments and ruins can be found at rest. Some of them have been there so long they oppose the conventional historical timeline. As well as raise questions about what our origins really are.“The Tomes” are written to reflect, not only the the eerie depths where the these lost cities sleep, but the wonderment of the knowledge that there is more then what we know. So please, break out your best set of headphones and immerse yourself in The Oceanic Tomes.
