Un/Mahts
Aetus Vetus

'Un/Mahts' bursts into action with looped power electronics. This is more aggressive than the normal ethereal dream-like drone soundscapes which they are famous for. As the track develops, melody is introduced through guitar generated textures. The overall effect here is abrasive, more confrontational than the regular Troum offerings.

'Aetus Vetus' shows a return to more familiar territory. The track opens with a deep drone-scape supplemented with delicate guitar based samples to help define the landscape of electronic drone. As this subsides the oscillations change to a more abrasive soundscape. This gradually builds in pitch and intensity and slowly fades to the end.
