The first track, Staircase of the Inverted Pyramid, echoes this implicitly, coaxing an almost primeval fear response to the opening chorus ov harsh, inhuman chants. And yet, as the abstract chords and keys and synth progress, it draws one in like a black hole. Very nicely done for such minimalistic dronescaping. The second track, Levitation Ritual, comes off with this cold, foreboding synth track that repeats and builds upon itself, and much like Staircase, it is deeply, deeply minimalistic and almost resonates as the song advances. Much like the name suggests, this track feels very . . . spaceful, almost as though one is soaring through the sky and breaching a set ov cloudbanks, only to turn and watch as the clouds grow darker and more ominous. It isn’t my purpose to weave bizarre tales while describing the feeling ov these two tracks, but in all honesty, that’s the easiest way to describe them.
All in all, for such a short release, Obsidian Megalith did a very good job for their debut EP! It is only my regret that there isn’t more content to this album. Both tracks are perfect for meditation and focusing on absolutely nothing, just getting lost in the rhythm ov the minimalism and letting go ov your day-to-day stress. Please, Obsidian Megalith, give us more next time!!
