INSTITUTION D.O.L. - Sets Release Date For New Album And Reveals First Tracks

  • Print

Edged Circle Productions sets 25 June as the international release date for Institution D.O.L.'s The Thelema Tales on vinyl LP format. For a quarter-century now, the Austrian power electronics/industrial monolith Institution D.O.L. has made a significant name for itself in those scenes with works that plumb the depths of horror - and, as with his latest The Thelema Tales, quietude. Here, main man Barbie B. is accompanied by pianist Wolfgang J. Eder, and the results are utterly blanching in their hushed, haunting power. On the trails of the Great Beast, Edward Alexander Crowley (aka Aleister Crowley), The Thelema Tales is a thematically in-depth audio document from a pilgrimage to Sicily in 2015 that Barbie B. did with his partner Meta Dolor. Here, Institution D.O.L. explores the mythos and mysticism of the man with six spacious tracks where smooth piano lines meet field recordings, from the Abbey and La Rocca, and electronica meets dark ambient. Four years of intense and devoted work has culminated and manifested into The Thelema Tales, which was originally released in a limited-edition CD version and now finally seeing worldwide release on vinyl courtesy of Edged Circle Productions. With form meeting content, trainspotters will note the Thelemic significance of the release date: 25 - 06 - 2021 = summary 18 = 6 + 6 + 6. Check the player below for The Thelema Tales teaser.
