Schattenseitenträumer It's hard to put into words what this album makes me feel. It's deep, it's otherwordly, it's full of nostalgia and longing, it's warmth in a cold place, finding shelter in the chaotic ruins of worlds and lives long gone by, it's what the last man on earth hears listening to his scrapped up shortwave radio while looking out from his shelter over a desolate wasteland while rain pours down and nature silently reclaims the former realms of mankind. I will listen to Cesar's work until I die aswell. Favorite track: Subtotem.

Mount Shrine presents us an album filled with radio chatter and warm drones layered on cold textures.

Your shortwave radio crackles with life as it rests on your heavy backpack. It follows your every step across the rough terrain as you narrow your search for the abandoned station. It is up here, far from civilization that the answers linger, lost for years as the stations self sustainability has kept it alive.

Recommended for fans of sedative ambient and for drifting into a place of comfort.
