Bass Communion - Cenotaph (double vinyl)

A limited double vinyl edition on 180 gm black vinyl in gatefold picture sleeve.

The mixes are exclusive and differ from those on the cd version of Cenotaph.

A limited vinyl edition on 180 gm black vinyl of the ninth Bass Communion album.

Containing four 20 minute pieces of brooding and ominous drone, propelled by low heartbeat pulses.

Housed in a gatefold picture sleeve, the vinyl mixes are exclusive and differ from those on the cd version.

As heard as pre-show music on the SW Grace For Drowning tour.


Described by SW as a sequel to 'Ghosts on Magnetic Tape', 'Cenotaph' is, in fact, far more than that. Just like its renowned predecessor, still regarded by him as an all-time favourite in his oeuvre, the new album turns spatial relations upside down, with otherworldly fields of microscopic crackle hovering in the foreground, as cavernous drones ominously flow underneath like steaming streams of molten metal, and, for the first time in Bass Communion history, these mysterious cycles are propelled by a slow, brooding rhythmical pulse. As he puts it himself "the sound is amorphous, spectral, "old", like clouds of rust and decay. It's ghosts hovering above the tower. Music that broods and transforms the room you play it in into a place where time stands still..."
