Endessiah comes three years after Treha Sektori was unveiled through its debut full-length Sorieh – a mind-blowing sound experiment, which brought me on the verge of schizophrenia with its fragmented, chaotic and eclectic approach to sound. The second conceptual entity which Dehn Sora (also in Sembler Deah, Church of Ra) created is far more accomplished, thorough and accessible. Endessiah means letting go of everything, conceptually the record represents a mindset in a decline of the physical world and this is exactly how it sounds. The symbiosis between the ideas and their realization music-wise is clear and logical, which makes the record far easier to swallow than Sorieh, but sufficiently deep, if let to completely unfold in your mind.
We enter the album through ‘Berh Ehn Confession’. Eclectic rhythmic structures and fragments reminiscent of human breath open the piece and only after two minutes you are thrown in the same place you probably remember from three years ago. However, this reminiscence is just a short-lived reminder which quickly fades away as the piece decides to take a completely different path. And not only this one but the album as a whole. Slowly unfolding melodies are taking over. They are gradually merging with heavy percussion thickened by massive bass pulses. According to an official Dehn Sora statement, real strings were used on this release, which impart a thin, gentle and organic quality.
