Memnon Sa return with Lemurian Dawn, a cosmic journey through space, time, and myth. Black ops missions witness the binary sunrise on a forgotten world. Pan dimensional spacecraft hover over ancient pyramids on worlds undreamed of. The guitar-driven doom metal sound of the acclaimed debut Citadel (2014) has been replaced here by a myriad of analog synthesizers, ancient world instruments, throat singing and strings. Lemurian Dawn channels new age meditational works, film soundtracks, and cosmic jazz from the '70s and '80s. The result could be the soundtrack to a lost 1970s European animation sci-fi film; warm analog sounds hint at cosmic foreboding and sinister forces unseen. The album was recorded over a month-and-a-half at Misha Hering's Holy Mountain Studios in Hackney, London, and mixed using almost exclusively analog equipment to 1/2 inch tape. It was mastered by legendary mastering engineer Dave Cooley at Elysium Masters in LA. "The references are very fleeting and hard to pin down, which gives the feeling of never quite getting your bearings. This is a good thing. Goblin, Pharaoh Sanders, Alexandro Jodorowsky, psyche folk, even the Incredible String Band, present cosmic vibes with precision." --GoldFlakePaint.
