"Near Death" surrounds the listener with an eerie aura from the first note, leading the listener to a sense of foreboding through its enigmatic passages.The album is a testament to the trio's ability to manipulate sound, shaping it into chilling stories that unfold throughout the tracks.Atmospheric textures evoke a sense of unease, and pulsating rhythms create a hypnotic rhythm that takes the listener on a journey.There's a palpable tension throughout the album, making you feel suspended between reality and a realm of shadows.Layers of sound intertwine to create a complex web that seems to echo the labyrinthine corridors of the subconscious mind.Distant whispers, eerie drones, and subtle changes in dynamics draw the listener deeper, inviting introspection and exploration.

In a world that often turns a blind eye to the dark side of human experience, Near Death is a fearless exploration.It is an invitation to face the shadow that dwells within us, and a reflection of the mysteries that lie beneath the surface.As the record spins and the sound engulfs you, you find yourself on a sonic journey that is at once unsettling and transformative. 'Megaptera' is not for the faint of heart, and is an invitation to confront the shadows that lurk within us. Through its intense sonic exploration, this project invites listeners to embrace the darkness and explore the most primal aspects of human experience. It beckons you to go on a journey to delve deeper into this aspect."
