By The Rivers Of Babylon
Apokrifna Realnost

Format: CD EP
On 19/03, AnnapurnA is proud to present on digipack A5 cd and on vinyl stricktly limited to 250 copies a sonic relic literally worlds away: Apokrifna Realnost's Na Rekah Vavilonskih. Originally self-released in 1988 on extremely limited-edition cassette, Na Rekah Vavilonskih is a document of the post-industrial music landscape, when artists grounded in the fallout from punk rock began working with unconventional methods to create soundscapes that defied the traditional norms of rock 'n' roll. And although Apokrifna Realnost could be viewed then and especially now as working within the same sphere as the old World Serpent scene (Current 93, Nurse With Wound, Coil et. al.), their interest in and integration of de-votional music preceded that scene by a number of years.\nComprising five songs in 21 minutes, Na Rekah Vavilonskih conveys the austerity and splendor of a medieval mass, specifically in the collective's homeland of Macedonia. Hauntingly sparse and concertedly ritualistic, a positively otherworldly aura is invoked through merely string, voice, and very fleeting percussion. The tension is palpable, yet somehow soothing; moments of magic are happening before the listener's ears. The analog at-mosphere reverberates along the walls of the church, or perhaps the tomb - or likely both. Na Rekah Vavilo skih feels centuries old, reflecting the ancient solemnity of eastern Europe long before the still-continuing divisions between the East and the West.\nAnd yet, for all the avant-garde, revolutionary rhetoric driving Apokrifna Realnost, there is a real reverence for its subject matter. This is firstly played out on the cover of Na Rekah Vavilonskih, where there is a verse from the Gospel of Luke 19:41-44 written in archaic Serbian Cyrillic. The theme is continued across the simply stunning book ac-companying Na Rekah Vavilonskih, long regarded as one of the most remarkable documents of the cassette culture era. Written mostly in Serbian Serbian and Macedonian, with a couple of passages being in Latin and Greek, it was hand-waxed, and some parts of it are inscribed in golden-flaked color.\nAt the nexus between Zoviet France before them and The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud after lays Apokrifna Realnost's Na Rekah Vavi-lonskih. Genuflect before its mysterious beauty.
