Jääportit track Kuihtuman Henkivi was originally released on compilation album ”YOGSOTHERY – Gate I: Chaosmogonic Rituals Of Fear” as CD in a cardboard slipcase with 20-page full colour booklet with liner notes and lyrics by I, Voidhanger Records at 2010.
The compilation opens with a 25-minute track by Jääportit , a dark ambient / darkwave project from Finland and while it is the least “Metal” track on here, it surely offers some lovecraftian atmospheres of gloom-and-doom through obscure soundscapes and voices organized in layers around a lead synth. Here, Jääportit is not afraid (compared to other projects such as Vinterriket) to display invention and playfulness that one might have already had experienced on excellent albums such as ’Avarrus’ or ’Uumenissa’ and that makes the project a standout in the genre. For sure the release could not find a better invocation of an atmosphere of out-of-space colors.
