Common Eider, King Eider 13th full length album "Yearn".
Since 2012, A.C. and B.S.s. have been crafting a unique aesthetic vision around modern composition, dark ambient, and black metal using voice, viola, percussion, and organic objects such as bone and antler to create a sonic world drenched in animism and project mythology.
"Yearn" follows suit with five extended arrangements for viola, percussion, and voice.
The pieces slowly unfold as if remembering a dream…
Fragments move in and out of focus, light and darkness considered equals in the creation of this landscape.
Concealment and revelation.
Hope and hopelessness.
Decay and birth.
With sonic visitations by Treha Sektori, and Lars Ennsen (Ultha, Unru, Sun Worship).
Digisleeve in duotone printing entirely
in black and metallic green on ultra matte stock.
Horned God and title depicted in clear spot varnish.
