News : Tim Yatras (Germ, Woods of Desolation, Grey Waters, etc) is releasing a free ambient ambient trilogy

By on January 8, 2013

If you haven’t had a chance to check out Germ yet, then I highly implore you to do so. It’s some of the most interesting material yet to come from the mind of Tim Yatras (who you might know as a member/past-member of Austere, Lord, Grey Waters, Nazxul, Pestilential Shadows, Woods of Desolation etc). If you have a spare 35 minutes, here is the whole of Loss, the latest Germ album, on Youtube. You can then buy it, and it’s predecessor, from here. Who would’ve thought atmospheric black metal and spacey trance could work so well?

But, onto the topic at hand. Over on Soundcloud, Yatras is currently in the midst of releasing the Ghost Tree Trilogy; three lengthy ambient tracks (Part 1 breaking the 20 minute mark), which are all up for free download. And, as expected, they’re fantastic. Part 2 was uploaded about 12 hours ago, and is apparently based around the ending theme of Loss closer “So Lonely, Dead Lonely”.

Recording of the next Germ full length begins in a few weeks.
