Red Sparowes - At The Soundless Dawn [12", 2LP]

AT THE SOUNDLESS DAWN is the debut album by RED SPAROWES. Instrumental post-metal at its best; slow-paced and epic. Their second, Every Red Heart Shines Toward The Red Sun is still my favourite, but this one's great too. The underlying theme to this album is the so-called sixth extinction: the extinction of species caused by humans. Heavy stuff. The version i have of this album is the third pressing (500 made) on white/blue "cloudy sky" vinyl. Looks gorgeous.

Label: Robotic Empire ROBO-043
Year of release: 2005

01. Alone And Unaware, The Landscape Was Transformed In Front Of Our Eyes
02. Buildings Began To Stretch Wide Across The Sky, And The Air Filled With A Reddish Glow

01. The Soundless Dawn Came Alive As Cities Began To Mark The Horizon
02. Mechanical Sounds Cascaded Through The City Walls And Everyone Reveled In Their Ignorance

01. A Brief Moment Of Clarity Broke Through The Deafening Hum, But It Was Too Late
02. Our Happiest Days Slowly Began To Turn Into Dust

01. The Sixth Extinction Crept Up Slowly, Like Sunlight Through The Shutters, As We Looked Back In Regret
