Baldruin – Portal

[ Wounded Knife, 2015 ]

On Portal, his newest vinyl release, Wiesbaden’s Johannes Schebler aka Baldruin explores the dusted neo-paganism and greyish hauntology that gradually seeps between sample-sprinkled distant sound collages and cinematic ambience. The entire album is indeed a portal to the heathen times before written history, when long forgotten animalistic rituals were taking place in the thick forests of today’s Germany and primordial mist filled the woods, where the first visitors of Europe visited. Somewhere between the deep past and the distant future, somewhere between the abrasiveness of Tim Hecker and Ben Frost and the hypnotic nowhere zones by Wanda Group, the new LP by Baldruin is properly weird and psychedelic. Recommended!
