Slovenian post-rock two-piece Shadow Universe has revealed a visualiser video for the second single »Hymn For The Giants« taken from their forthcoming full-length album, »Subtle Realms, Subtle Worlds«, set to release on March 11th, 2022 via Monotreme Records.
The band comments: “»Hymn For The Giants« is a glorification to our almighty and precious lungs of the earth, the trees. In a very cinematic way it tells you how trees are to be respected and cared for.”
“What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” – Chris Maser

From the shadows of Slovenia, Shadow Universe is an instrumental music project, creating breath-taking cinematic soundscapes from post-rock, neoclassical, ambient, and post-metal elements. Their third album, »Subtle Realms, Subtle Worlds« will be released worldwide on March 11th via Monotreme Records. In advance of its release, today the band unveils second single, »Hymn For The Giants«.
Masterfully harnessing both the quiet and the loud, »Hymn For The Giants« glorifies our almighty and precious trees, with moments of calm cut apart by vast swathes of brutal, yet considered, cacophony.

Formed in 2017 by Peter Dimnik and Žan Šebrek, Shadow Universe merges contrasting textures of shimmering ambient soundscapes and heavy anxious darkness to portray the diversity of nature and life on earth and beyond.
Every person experiences the world differently, which puts us into our own unique bubbles and subtle worlds. »Subtle Realms, Subtle Worlds« finds the band turning their songs into living, breathing ecosystems, carefully dissecting every moment of peace and chaos alike. The album sees the building particles of the universe as separate worlds, with their own story, perception, rules, and individual inner realm.
»Subtle Realms, Subtle Worlds« was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Peter Dimnik. The album will be released on CD and digital formats as well as limited edition vinyl (480 copies on black, cream/black Galaxy effect, and cream with blue splatter vinyl).
Shadow Universe is:
Peter Dimnik – Guitars, Piano, Synths
Žan Šebrek – Drums, Percussion
