Press Info:
Ibtihal is an Arabic word that can be translated as a hard state to reach, a deep mental connection towards the within where a being can feel for the entity he is worshiping, an entity that can be benevolent or malevolent, obedient or imperious, from above or from below… A double-edged sabre.

“Al-Ibtihal” is an attempt to transcribe this feeling into the physical world through both visual and sonic mediums. The hour long album engulfs the two opposed sides of the same coin, depicted by the A-side and B-side of the tape.
The selected artwork captured by the talented Hind Moumou and gracefully edited by Hagen Ebejer portrays as a reminder that the Hand is a strong symbol of protection, most notably in the north-african and arab culture.

The A-side is a collection of electronic rituals where endless evolving drones meet ambient distorded soundscapes.

The B-side consists of martial pieces dedicated to War deities, with the introduction of tribal drums and beats.
