Grist are a band from Australia that plays a very ritualistic and occult form of dark ambient/drone and this is a review of their 2011 album "Mediatation Zero" which was released by Kalpamantra.
Synths are very dark and occult sounding dark ambient/drones, while the sound effects bring a very avant garde ritualistic sound to this long and epic 20 minute song.
Vocals and songwriting are all absent from this recording with the music being all instrumental, while the song theme revolves around meditation and rituals, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Grist are a very great sounding ritualistic, occult dark ambient/drone band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED.
