Created in the Welsh countryside at Ian Arkley’s home studio Arfryn. Everything written, played, mixed and produced by Mr Arkley. Psychedelia, neofolk, ambience and improvisation all come into play here. 

Ian started his music in the eighties with the thrash band Seventh Angel. He went on to form the doom bands Ashen Mortality and My Silent Wake and has played with a range of bands and musicians over the years.

This album was created using many instruments including harmonium, didgeridoo, various acoustic percussion, mandolin, guitar, manipulated recordings, speach and vocals which were improvised.
