the smoke is back. the repeated one note throbs at 1.49 are brilliant. the beginning of the track is v filmic..... i see a slow motion character walking....and this is going on in the background.
fantastic track pete. i wanted a noisier end.....but apart from that....perfect. give up the day job.

Really good. I like the contrast between the metallic guitars and the Enoesque pads. Your bass is tremendous sir. What is melif?

Maybe this is what caused that earth tremor up in North Wales :-)
Good to have some new stuff from you.
Bass line is great and cool tone.
Good interplay with guitars and I like the 'live'/ drums coming in.
The kick drum really pushes through.
Cool stuff.
More please

Ode to the bass
You started with a singular purpose and delivered the goods in a very tasty manner. I love the pulse around 1:40 and following. It takes the rhythm in a new direction which is nicely augmented by your "vat of noise" above it all. Something mysterious about this track that makes it very engaging. It's easy to see/hear/feel how you would have had a lot of fun putting this all together.

Cool vibe. Stripped down arrangement works great. Nice, slow build in intensity. Hypnotic. Thanks, Peter.

Creeping, snarling and ultimately calming. The crunchy guitar accents were surprising at first. I especially liked the lower chords. The live bass was a big plus.

Dramatic
with an Eastern edge to it.... love the hard and soft contrasts..... as Julian said it's like a slow motion thing, but it's powerful and hypnotic sounding.... top notch, cheers M

Exellent Listen
Terrific mix. Instruments sound pristine, and I really like the change of percussion kits and beat, but maintaining the fluidity of the start with the bass. A dreamy terrific piece - congrats.

Love how this is panned out
The drums and synth in conjunction to me are the star, the guitar tones are lushes and the bass is fabulous. Hard sounding and I'm digging those pauses. Fine job and thoroughly enjoyed.

tones from the vat
As Paul mentioned, the breaking of this into parts each with different drive is quite cool. Great use of sounds with this eastern-eque vibe. killer bass - moves along with almost stalker like certainty. Really patient development. dloaded with thanks.
