  • Twinesuns - The Leaving (Handmade CD Version)
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The album comes in a nice envelope with a handmade banderole and a custom stamp on it. All this beauty is wrapped in clear vinyl.

    The idea behind THE LEAVING, or more esentally in the foundation of Twinesuns, was to create music that basically allows to be everything that we both as a band like. We wanted to break free from all these rules that dominate todays heavy music. Why is there a need of rhythem or drums? Why can´t there be mistakes on a record (since it´s a very natural habbit to make mistakes)? Does heavy music need vocals? Why have there be different parts and always the same structures in music? Why can´t we play the same riff for 10 minutes?
    We wanted to ignore all these guide lines and create something only for us, something that would primarily fit our taste and understanding of music and art.

    Our mindset was, to record something very raw, live and authentic. This is why we recorded most of the record live at the studio in an 8 hour session. We recorded the songs with a straight focus on the vibe and atmosphere of the takes and less thinking about things like mistakes or flaws.
    After recording the guitars, we felt that there was something missing. So we asked Renzo from Abraham if he´d like to lay down some moog synths for one of the songs. He ended up playing on the whole record.
    The moog added a whole new dimension in depth and low-end to the music. We choose not to mix and master the record to loud to keep all of this huge low-end information. This why Chris Johnson used a lot of vintage outboard equipment to master the tracks.

    The Artwork was created by Thor Ohe himself with pictures he had taken on his trip to Japan.
    The idea was, to create a visual layer that underlines the dark, haunting and monotonous atmosphere of the record. With the same idea in mind we choose the title THE LEAVING. There is no real concept in this record but a very coherent atmosphere and dynamic that give album an almost cinematic feel.
