Stone Breath’s first release since their triumphant return with “The Shepherdess and the Bone-White Bird” – “The Ætheric Lamp” finds them exploring similar territory to the expansive Middle Eastern influenced sounds of that previous record. Intricate and driving – half composed and half improvised – tense and intense – beautiful and terrifying. Thematically, the songs explore angelic spirits – but this is no New Age fluff – this holds more in common with the angels of the Old Testament and the works of John Dee.
“The Ætheric Lamp” is the debut of several new members of Stone Breath. Joining timeMOTheye on this release are Don Belch (guitarist/multi-instrumentalist), Brooke Elizabeth (vocals,percussion), and Carin Wagner Sloan (ex-Iditarod, vocals).
