Profound Lore have agreed to work with HALF MAKESHIFT. Hailing from Maryland and masterminded by its sole proprietor Nathan Michael (who released the great “L’Anse Amort” release on 20 Buck Spin earlier this year), Profound Lore is preparing itself to release an observation under the moniker of “Omen”. Split into four movements in what works as one 50-minute track, “Omen” is a powerful and moving sonic jaunt through vast cinematic musical terrain. Where the traditional elements that help shape Half Makeshift’s aura are methodically spliced within the grand picture, “Omen” captures delicate intimate tones to create an expansive dense layered vision, one that conjures up powerful landscape and spatial imagery. Through moments of lush string movements, bass rumblings and pulsations, ivory key dabbling, spurts of static, and wholly layered with impeccable guitar ambience, “Omen” is a massive, oppressive, and overwhelmingly devastating vision.
Overall “Omen” is a fine example where such genres as post-rock, ambient, and drone are melded together seamlessly capturing the emotional pedigree of the likes of such artists as Godspeed You Black Emperor, A Silver Mount Zion, Set Fire To Flames, Nadja, and the quieter more personal introspective moments of Ulver.
Expect “Omen” to be released early Spring of 2008.
