“Between The Light And The Moon” is the poetic title of DISSVARTH’s debut full-length album, a contemplative voyage through starry landscapes of infinite beauty. DISSVARTH is a duo comprising two among the most visionary and talented artists in today’s atmospheric metal field: Dis Pater, the enigmatic Australian composer behind MIDNIGHT ODYSSEY, and Svarthen of Slovakia’s AEON WINDS.
The enchanting, etheric songs of “Between The Light And The Moon” are the result of their collaboration and their love for the music of Dead Can Dance, Elend, Arcana, Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream. Leaving the metal influences behind, the duo has distilled a pure concentrate of atmospheric ambient imbued with classical music, enriched with cosmic tones, fascinating neo-folk acoustic passages, a prominent darkwave feel, and crystalline vocal melodies.
DISSVARTH’s music is simple, yet transcending and incredibly intense. There’s no sadness in these notes, but the kind of melancholy brought up by nighttime reflections and bittersweet memories, mixed with the reassuring hopes for a better tomorrow. DISSVARTH speak to our spirit, and their cosmic tales of loss and abandon reconcile us with our lives.
