H. J. Ayala has been featured here before, providing some mightily atmospheric guitar playing. His current release has to be his darkest yet, however. The entrance to the album (appropriately titled “Entrada“) feels like the beginning of a horror movie with a proper budget. The tension is palpable.
It gets deeper in feel from then on. The whole of this album was made on guitars only, with effects being added after the recording. In fact, all the sounds come from the guitar in it self and the place where the microphone was settled.
Eerie listening, but very rewarding.
