Highly-anticipated second album from the trio of Vincent De Roguin (Shora), Stephen O'Malley (Sunn0))), KTL) and Daniel O'Sullivan (Guapo). Like their genre and audience-confounding debut "Deep In Ocean Sunk the Lamp of Light," "Betimes" is an atmospheric, constantly changing piece that encompasses a mind-boggling array of different performance and processing techniques. The deeply psychedelic and affecting results present a soundstage that is continually evolving, with new elements entering and leaving the fray every couple of seconds. Betimes includes significant contributions from free percussionists Nicolas Field and Alex Babel, who sprinkle the sound field with an almost FMP-style rush of splattering drum sound, raising the intensity of the music (without resorting to bashing). Betimes also features effects and vocals from Ulver mastermind Kristoffer Rygg.

When I listen to this album I feel as though I’m going deep inside my soul to face all the darkness within me, and when the last rumbles of feedback fade away, I emerge with a better perspective on my life.
