Barren Land is a masterpiece of nature inspired and sampled ambience. Recorded on the Artic island of Spitsbergen and completed early 2003 this is the official cassette edition. Colour booklet and factory made tapes.
Over an hour Northaunt craft an epic, frozen, beautiful atmosphere that you can escape into and will want to return to many times.
The sound is sumptuous, the sampled atmosphere is crystal-clear, fermenting an ever-evolving stereo experience buoyed through the minutiae within each sculpted locations. – Auralpressure
