Comments

This is the first release of Twilight Ritual, operating under this name. It has become clear since the early days of Autumn that these guys were up to something special. As Autumn as a formula evolved around the basic idea of traditional electronic (cosmic) music with a contemporary flavor, the band members evolved as well. In one direction, displayed in releases as Aparell I Ma and Not Afraid to Die, it grew towards the Linear Movement concept : straight forward, accessible, upbeat. In the other direction, a more artisitically based melting pot of ideas resulted in the concept of Twilight Ritual, of which Kraut and Experiments With Environments were notable preludes.

The Ritual contains several very strong tracks that were used in compilation projects, such as Surrounded and Elegy, the latter of which has been used for an experimental Videoclip.
