Jordablod - 'The Cabinet of Numinous Song' CD
Digipak edition with 16 page booklet limited to 500 copies
Duly titled, The Cabinet of Numinous Song the new 2020 album weaves together fanciful-yet-frazzled threads of seemingly disparate frequencies, from hypnotically hovering black metal to sensually shimmering post-punk, from gnarled 'n' gnashing death metal to plaintive 'n' pastoral loner-folk. Far from a schizophrenic mess, JORDABLOD wield an elusive and profuse sort of magick - a sonic alchemy, if you will - that allows them to firmly/gently guide the listener across alien terrain, the album's seven songs each a landscape unto itself but comingling and coalescing into a grand tapestry that's truly Numinous Song. In fact, the album's 42-minute runtime reaches so deeply into the soul that you'd mistake this Cabinet for being both far shorter and far longer than that...
