description

A digital re-release of the long-deleted and rare folk / ambient / drone 'Parsimònia' EP (2004) along with the 'Matanuska' (2007) album.

With 'Parsimònia' and 'Matanuska' Rameses III finally jettisoned the traditional song format, almost every track becoming a semi-improvised but tightly edited loose swirl of sound. Often recording large sections together in a single take, the band made heavy use of bowed and EBow electric guitar, warped Mellotron, acoustic guitar, electronics and Tibetan singing bowl.
