Kydos – Reflections on Heroism
Second album by japanese artist Manabu Hiramoto as Shinkiro.
While the first album was urban and influenced by the deep dark atmospheres of the futuristic city of Osaka, Shinkiro’s new album focuss on a more personal path influenced by Shinto, Bouddhism and Manabu’s relocation by the country side.
The sound of the new album is made of deep dark soundscapes mixed with percussions, soundsources of rain, winds, sea, trees, waves and birds.
Though the album is dark ambiant and ritualistic in essence, it also has a meditative and contemplative touch.
