New Album out now: Nico Guerrero “STREAMS OF OBLIVION” / Silent Records
Nico Guerrero “STREAMS OF OBLIVION” | Silent Records | release June 25 2021
“Metaphysical drones for metaphysical people. A collection of evasive shadowy textures, deeply meditative but with an edge, less flower more thorn… Composer Nico Guerrero uses his guitar as a divining rod to bring spirits over from the other side.” Kim Cascone
After the 2019 album recorded live at the Nordic House during the Iceland Airwaves festival, this last studio album has been entirely composed/recorded in Iceland (winter 2021) and mixed/mastered in Paris (March 2021).
The 7 instrumental compositions for 2 to 5 electric guitars build a cathedral of sounds, summoning drones with depthcharges of guitar overtones, all dedicated to the Icelandic telluric forces, volcanoes, entities, ghosts and deities…
Following the track “Horus Rising” for the Dark Indicator compilation, STREAMS OF OBLIVION is the first album opening a 2nd collaboration with Silent Records.
