Pure Ash Tray

by Hypnogonia

Worthless recording-wise, good lyrics and the ideas are there, even though it doesn't work. I was young&optimistic so it's available as a free download/limited numbered digipack. Will never be repressed, I make new music on Bandcamp with the name Rikky.

Album Notes
Note: I have ended this project and on Bandcamp, with the artist-name Rikky (or stylized as Riʞky), you'll find my new album Dissolution. I think you should head over there, even though this older album might give an interesting perspective/contrast.
Pure Ash Tray is the debut demo album of my old and first solo project Hypnogonia. It was released the 24th October 2010 through multiple music sites as a free download. It's my first album, I was overly optimistic and pressed it (limited to 100 numbered copies with a 2-panel-booklet containing lyrics, photos and album-info, a nice design that looks great but it promises more than the music you'll get). It will never be repressed.

Musically it’s a a mess in different style, with some sort of alternative rock (perhaps grunge) as a base. The other genres that are explored include experimental rock, metal, ambient, acoustic, psychedelia and krautrock. The music and lyrics are quite melancholic and gloomy with an overall negative feel, they're actually the only thing that really works on this album. Pure Ash Tray is loosely based on a concept dealing with subjects such as nostalgia, mood swings, utilisation, rape, shame and acceptation. When playing the album from first to last track the previous song ends where the next starts, making the flow of the album smooth.

Everything written, designed, programmed, arranged, performed, improvised and mixed by Ricky Lindén except:
Ash Tray co-written with Heidi Enbacka.
Second guitar solo on Innocent No More by Christian Holmlund (from Circlevicious).
