The beauty of this album is its minimality. The vocals are the building stones of all the songs, very elongated and mostly monotonous - the term 'circular breathing' came to mind. They resonate with each other, with the minimal percussion that sometimes appears, with the didgeridoo in 'Pneuma', with the icy layer of noise in 'Nekros'. My favourites are 'Nyx' and 'Logos' because of the more peaceful and meditative atmosphere as compared to the other songs but the whole album is totally worth checking out.
Artists that I can compare these sounds to are CHVE, Herbst9, Ashtoreth and Raison d'Être.
I followed my own advice and listened to this pearl eyes closed, without having read any info, and I'm amazed: the Greek project Martyria consists of only two people. And it's their debut album. George Zafiriadis and Lena Merkouri have a fan in Belgium, that's for sure.
