Sardinian post-rock and ambient multi-instrumentalist Valerio Marras aka S A R R A M shares his dark and vibrant fifth solo album »Pàthei Màthos« in full today, ahead of its world release this Friday 1st September on Subsound Records.
“Intense, emotionally vulnerable, and beautiful.” – Angry Metal Guy
“A sonic adventure that will challenge your very subconscious.” – The Sleeping Shaman
“There is a sense of vacuum-esque existence parallel to ours that really gives the album its supernatural emphasis.” – Everything Is Noise
S A R R A M is a dark ceremony inspired by the wild, ancient landscape of Sardinia. A crushing but yet graceful composition where drone, electronica, doom, post-rock blend to invite the listener to an intense sound journey. Dealing with learning through suffering as a central theme, »Pàthei Màthos« – which features appearances from renowned experimentalists Lili Refrain, Dalila Kayros, Tobias Vethake (Sicker Man) – is a deep trip in the darkness surrounded by pulsating soundwaves, crushing droning layers, ethereal voices and floating cellos.
About the album, S A R R A M says: “As every record, it describes a part of my living, my existence through sound and frequencies. It’s something deep and authentic, something that can be felt, something real. The experience of my last two records »Silenzio« and »Albero« brought me to »Pàthei Màthos«: I needed to go further once again, pushing my borders even more and doing something I’ve never done before: composing. Nevertheless: sometimes it’s just about floating together into huge waves of sound.”
»Pàthei Màthos« will be released on limited colored vinyl, black vinyl and digital through Subsound Records. It was recorded and mixed at A.C.M.E. Studio in Cagliari, Sardinia by Nicola Olla, and mastered by Lorenzo Stecconi. Artwork by Animamundi.
