`Svartur` is a collaborative album between ASHTORETH & ONSTURICHEIT and was recorded in isolation during Lock Down 2020.
Onsturicheit is a project by modular sound wizard Peter Moorkens.
The name is derived from a Dutch word from the Dark Ages that means turbulence, noise, unbridled, wildness, etc...
And that perfectly describes his musical approach: Electronic, chaotic, random, noisy, improvised... and never the same.
Think soundscapes, samples, sequencers and textures.

Ashtoreth is a solo-project in search of a shamanistic perspective, channelling at times minimal, meditative drones with layers of meandering guitars and at others a catharsis of doom, drone,ambient, folk, metal, noise and experimentation. Always in a free and improvised form.
Together they weave a web of shamanistic psychedelic dark ambient, guitar-drones interspersed by modular synth-loops, creating a fascinating sound-collage for an outer-body experience.
