Sephiroth - Cathedron (1999)

Sephiroth relates stories about the inexorable and destructive power of Time, mankind's futile attempts of resistance, and the sunken cities, fallen towers, and overgrown ruins that this has resulted in. Dark eerie soundscapes and ritualistic drums are combined with own field recordings from places like Cairo, Iceland, and gloomy Nordic forests. Sephiroth's music whispers about the Gods we are desperately trying to appease, only for then finding ourselves dying before the monuments we spent our lives building. Sephiroth bid you welcome into the ruins and down to the deep forgotten catacombs.

Utterly enthralling. A dark walk, resting on tumbled stones, then moving on as the sounds get closer. How much time is left?
