"My Mortal Share / Towers", a seven inch EP by an obscure black metal/noise/industrial artist, Absolute Key, is the work of a sick man. Ridden with a blood disease, A. Klemi, the sole member of the band, faced the gates of the unknown last Autumn, and from those experiences this EP was born.
"My Mortal Share", a mid-tempo piece full of the dirtiest screeches and ethereal wails somewhere between industrial and Summoning, paints a vision of a prisoner: where are the boundaries of our physical and spiritual existence, and is it possible to break these chains in the pressure of the overwhelming universe?
B-side "Towers" is a soundscape of Above and Below, a man's never ending quest for truth and rebellion. How can we ripthe heavens apart when our hands are tied by our own materialism? Musically Towers is a more abstract piece of work, combining slow rhythms, religious sound imagery and agonizing screams – being a modern psalm, perhaps?
"My Mortal Share / Towers" will be limited to 300 copies and includes a lyric sheet. Cover painting by A.Klemi. All copies on color vinyl. Varying degrees of green and blue vinyl. No 2 copies are identical.
