From Reissue Liner Notes

All instruments to be heard on this album were exclusively made from human bones and skulls by the hand of Zero Kama. They never have been used since the time of its recording, which took place at the Secret Temple of Laylah from 5th to 28th of May 1984 e.v.

Remixed at Psychonaut Studio Vienna in November 1987 e.v., and dedicated to the symbol of Laylah, meaning night and death, as well as to its numerical equivalent, Oz, a goat or unrestrained sexual force of creation, thus showing the identity of the basic two opposite forces in this generous universe of beauty and strength, in which the Lovers my find ecstasy in Pan. Who wishes to enter this world of darkness, in which the Great Goat dwelleth, may pass through the sigil of Oz given at the front of this Cover.

I'm not sure what give me the willies more. The music or the description of it.

Absolutely fantastic. I'd never heard of this album before. I was spellbound.

Interesting album... reminded me somewhat of Aural Hypnox releases. They also utilise human bones (kanglings) and have some esoteric leanings, as you probably know...

Margot said...

In effect I was thinking to post a Aural Hypnox release soon...stay tuned :-)

Terrific! I remember passing this one up in a record shop in 1986, in favour of Coil's Horse Rotorvator. Now I have both, thanks!

Haunting, not all too sure whether to thank you or not

Wasn't too sure of this at first but upon repeated listenings its really grown on me. The instrumentation is very simple (seems to me to be hand drum, flute, horn, voice) but the heavy use of delay and reverb reminds me a lot of early zoviet france and in my mind that's a REALLY god thing.

By the way, free remixes of this here:
