Oro!Oro! - Ilgesio Rubikonai
Dark Ambient Autarkeia is fast becoming a magical label for me. Just when I tell myself a new release isn't going to be any better, Oro!Oro! Gets thrust into my arms. With a special limited edition (500 copies only) Digipak, and the first Golden CD I have ever seen (Yes, the actual disc is GOLD), the attention to detail already mesmerises me.

A Native Lithuanian project, I believe this one to have direct links to Autarkeia's Girnų Giesmés. The track titles are kindly translated into English, which is a big selling point for me. Titles such as "Cranes leaving their Northern Home" and "Nothern Star - Sun of Insomnia" really set a mood.

Musically, this is difficult to categorise. It's Dark Ambient, but at the same time, it feels like something more. Something resonating on a higher plateau. It may as well be like going to an Art Gallery, and taking the works of Van Gogh, Picasso, and Da Vinci, and translating them into Dark, Psychadelic and brooding ambience. The title track itself needs to be heard to be believed.

Well done Autarkeia.

500 copies. Don't forget.
