ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LOST CAVERNS OF THERA (Thera is the Greek word for fear) The volcanic island of Thera or Thira, also known as Santorini, is located in the Aegean Sea between Greece and Asia Minor. The discovery of these caverns is so new that no one has been able to complete the mapping. They were found strictly by accident. Many riches were found, not as in gold and jewels, but great artifacts like animal bones of unknown origins, ancient art and maybe the gateway to Atlantis!

The mouth of the caverns is very small, just big enough for a small to medium size person to squeeze through. This might be why it took so long for them to be rediscovered. Once inside the mouth it opens up into a large room with four passages leading in different directions. There is a constant sound of water droplets, and beautiful colored stalactites and stalagmites line the ceiling, walls, and floor. As you travel deeper into the caverns there is no light. Our human eyes need some source of light (even a very small amount) to make them work. In here, without light you can't see your hand right in front of your face!

Cavern II has beautiful art and cave drawings that show most of the other caverns, and there are dates back to 900 B.C.! The most intriguing drawing shows that Cavern III has an underwater passage to the lost city of Atlantis, which was believed to have been swallowed up by the sea during a enormous volcanic earthquake in 1500 B.C.

"Death From Above" is carved into the passage or hall between Cavern II and III. Stalactites frequently fall from the ceiling and walls. The earth seems to be very unstable there, would be and understatement!

The bones found in Cavern IV are creatures of unknown origins. More testing, studying, and excavating is being done to find answers to these mysteries. Cavern V completes a huge circle that ends up back at the mouth of the Cave.

Award-winning producer Brannan Lane could calm someone riding a roller coaster with his celestial sound. Relaxing energy pushes its way onto your senses, almost forcing you into a dream-filled coma. The ambient navigator’s warm sonic textures may be the cure for the most severe cases of road rage. – Emusic Editor

Lane has crafted an extended meander beneath and within ancient caverns of nigh
"Yo! Hello down there! Do ya need any more rope? Hey! You okay? Hey!"

They each run towards the edge of the freshly discovered Theran Abyss, echoing its horrid silence, staring silently as the rope is pulled back up. Their friend is not there - the rope is a shredded mass of frayed ends. What they hear in the depths of the blackness beneath them is an indescribable miasma of gurglings and moans. A blast of methane-heavy winds suddenly creates an intense vortex around them. Vertigo overwhelms them in the midst of their confusion and panic. They become a tangled mass of flailing limbs, scrabbling for a grip on the slippery cave floor. All light has vanished and in the coldest of any darkness they have ever known, their screams mingle as one nauseating cry - they are unheard in the vast pit.

Well that was fun! Yeah, Lane's soundtrack work, ambient feartrack, and noir places of dripping wet slime inspired me. Lane points out that "Thera" is the Greek word for fear - and such is the effect of his ambient art. This is
that darkness of Robert Rich and old Lustmord. It is the crushing, smothering, paranoia and asphyxiating soundtunnels of the hopelessly claustrophobic. This is deep wetness, thick darkness, endless wanderings of
places one needs to stay away from lest ye dieth amongst yon hellspawned ruins of things accursed and best forgotten. Drip, drip, drip, echoey essences, and horrific howlings of draconian behemoths aneath, greet your ears.

Lane has crafted an extended meander beneath and within ancient caverns of nigh unto the Underworld's entry. You can hear the headwaters of river Styx and sense that nagging guilt that ye are in trespass of abodes of the
charnel legions. Only dead and blind things be permitted to wander these regions. "What is your pleasure? The price ye ask? Yer soul, yer mind, and that VISA card - thou fool!"

This is a very dark passage to a place that only Lane can so deftly create. This may really bother some listeners as it gets right next to "the fear complex" in the psyche. This is not music, not "a walk in the park" ambience
- this is fear, this is a prelude to doom. If it were not for Lane releasing us in the final track, "Into the Light", one wanders if this might not be one of the most completely dank and dark releases I have experienced in year 2001. Lane - market this stuff to movie producers! It's great - spooked even me.
