This sounds awesome. Just what I've been missing recently, this tribal, Serpent's Lair-esque music.

Steve Roach has announced yet another album release for summer...

"Sigh of Ages Steve Roach (Summer)

An exhalation in repose, the sound of the places in-between, the emotion between emotion. Filled with a poignant sense of time's passage, of life lived, lives passed and renewal, a sigh expressed in sound..."

In spite of some previous new age-y pseudo-enlightment leanings, will probably buy...out of respect for his well-executed shamanic drum work

If I may, my review from the Hypnagogue site:

If Dream Tracker, the new shamanic/tribal collaboration between Byron Metcalf, Dashmesh Khalsa and Steve Roach, consisted only of the 20-minute title track, I would be quite content to listen to it over and over. Luckily, there's another 50 minutes of pulsing, drum-and-didgeridoo-driven, sacred-ritual sounds to get carried away by. As with all of Metcalf's outings, the idea here is to alternately power and lull you into a state of shamanic trance. And whattaya know, it works. As Roach lays down a signature amorphous soundbed, Metcalf and Khalsa settle onto it, tap directly into the tribal vein and let it flow. Khalsa's playing is rich and organic, a breathy snake called forth by the drums to escort you downward. Listen as the elements take the forefront in turn, a smooth give-and-take--in one moment your head is full of frame drums, clay pots and tabula; the next, misty synth pads form waves and half-shapes; then the gently animal growl of the didgeridoo becomes more insistent; and on it goes, from power to quiet and back. This is a headphones-on, get-comfortable disc, designed to transport you. So let it. Yes, there are distinct echoes of here of past offerings and configurations, snakes and shamans and elders. It's the nature of the thing. But they come like familiar paths carved in a new forest. Just follow. If your spirits runs toward the shamanic/tribal side of things, you're sure to like where they go.
