Ayato vs Ghosts : Stillborn Dub [Treetrunk Records / Eg0cide Productions]

When Ayato first listened to Stillborn Ghosts‘ double album “over & out” (released in 2009 by Svartgalgh) he immediately detected a dark dub potential in this weird mixture of post-noise-rock, dark ambient and industrial. So he asked to a member of the band – his friend & collaborator The Ghost Between The Strings – a copy of the original tracks of the album in order to do some remixes. In addition to 4 remixes, he composed new tracks using raw guitar recordings by the 2 members of the band (TGBTS & Stillborn Blues). The result can be considered as a completely new album : Stillborn Dub (and maybe even a new band, since the collaboration is going on…

The album is available as a free download from Treetrunk Records but you can also buy a CD-R version for 5 euros (excluding postage) from Eg0cide Productions. If interested, please write to tgbts0(at)gmail.com to order a copy

Not sure how I overlooked TGBTS until now- seeing that they have multiple releases– but I’m so very happy to find this recording.
It has a little bit of everything– (just like the description says) a “weird mixture of post-noise-rock, dark ambient and industrial”
Yes- it’s experimental… Yes- it can be very unsettling… chaotic and disastrous at times, and dark as midnight…
A great production that paints a picture of buildings collapsing into black oceans of churning restless water, crackling old radios hissing out dead songs, the sinister shadow creature just around the corner, and blue-grey TV static with its own wicked consciousness- you never know what will happen next- other than that it will leave you with a creepy feeling as though you’ve just somehow been sonically molested.
This release sets a new standard for the term “Dark Psychedelia”– and you should give it a listen. Thanks for making music of this caliber available for free.
Will definitely be checking out your other work!
Cheers!

Subject: “The Stillborn Dub” stride on a time to drift back. .
The power of a style is, may be, to develop itself across all, taking a stream end make it stronger….What is the part of the shadow when light is scarce? How to render it more deeper? How play with discord to make appear harmonic lines ? Ayato & the Ghosts drew a highway rhythm, putting points of light all along, raising abstract and scary shapes, chime out a guitar chord…..The Stillborn Dub stride on a time to drift back.
———–
La puissance d’un style est, peut-être, de pouvoir se développer dans n’importe lequel, prendre un flux et le rendre plus fort …. Quelle est la part d’ombre quand la lumière est rare? Comment la rendre plus profonde ? Comment jouer avec la discorde pour faire apparaître les lignes harmoniques?
Ayato & the Ghosts ont dessiné une autoroute-rythme, mettant des points de lumière tout le long, soulevant des formes abstraites et effrayantes, égrènent un accord de guitare …..The Stillborn Dub arpente un temps de dérive vers l’arrière.
