On 'Night of the Ankou', London drone outfit Rameses III has its work colored
and enhanced by the stylings of the North Sea (a/k/a Brad Rose, he of the
Digitalis CD-R imprint) and the results are stunning, even for late night psych/minimal
outings at this advanced stage in the game. Viola, bouzouki, bowed metal, prayer bells
and other gently cacophonous instrumentation are added by Rose into three deep,
chilling pieces of sublime, Stars of the Lid-esque drone, making this an excellent
and blissful album for meditation, ingestion, twilight, background, rest, and awakening.
