eco_073: PASTOR TONAL – Amabilis Insania
Wild, menacing and dark rocking Noise is what Amabilis Insania by Pastor Tonal from San Juan, Puerto Rico is. Pitch-dark drones and angry abrasive saw-tooth waves that invoke pictures of burning churches and corpsepainted figures.

This album by Tokyo-based Yorihisa Taura truly lives up to its title. Nocturne shines when the sun has set. Symphonic pieces of orchestrated melancholy, solemn grace, copious mysteriousness, tranquility and vibrant confidence.

The lyrics by Nußbaum and the way they are recited by the author are sometimes painfully intimate, sometimes eerie, sometimes so solacing that it is tear-provoking…
