Dave Aftandilian Rather than angels, what I see as I listen to this album are ghosts: staticky, flickering in and out of existence between the trees, all with their mouths wide open in wordless screams. Then the all-enveloping shimmering, buzzing, shattering of the walls between the worlds…. But at last the gentle peace of the shining stars glimpsed through the shivering leaves, the low murmured calling of the night creatures, and the slowing beat of my heart return me to the center.

As this age of darkness is upon us, great angels, bearers of light, are battered and scattered to the far corners...dislocated, dismembered, but not defeated. Their faint but glorious voices pierce this darkness with the promise of return...

  In this stunning album debut, Cephalopagus Records presents Shelter Of Trees' Requiem For Dislocated Angels. Displaying a harmonious sonic balance of darkness and light, Shelter Of Trees' mystical sound currents will both terrify and console. The eternal dance of dark/light, yin/yang, ugliness/beauty, creation/destruction is brilliantly evoked by Shelter Of Trees in their first ever release.

TREES are the places of birth and death; they are used as sacred shrines and places of spiritual pilgrimage, ritual, ceremony and celebration. Sacred trees are found in the Shamanic, Hindu, Egyptian, Sumerian, Toltec, Mayan, Norse, Celtic and Christian traditions. The World-tree is described in The Upanishads as “a tree eternally existing, its roots aloft, its branches spreading. In these dark times, more than ever, we seek the ancient wisdom, protection and shelter of trees.
