The Hermit - The Gate [broque 113]

Image

While The Hermit’s previous album „Liber 3“ still was concerned with the apparent dichotomy between life and death, his latest full-length release “Gate” picks up where “Liber 3” left off in order to take the next inevitable step. As the music of his new album brings the post-industrial electronica sound of his earlier works to full perfection, the album’s underlying theme and subject is the transition to a whole new spiritual level that has nothing in common anymore with the observable universe. There is one overarching question: What lies behind a symbol such as Ain Soph, the non-sefirot of the kabbalistic tree of life, when consciously climbing the infinite steps of Jacob’s ladder? Starting from C.G. Jung’s contemplation of the mundane ego’s psyche in the intro “Gate Keeper”, the album’s eight tracks in between ambient, glitchy electronica and post-industrial proto- and dub techno lead us on a journey which culminates in the final dissolution of the worldly ego, that is perfectly manifested through the album’s closing track “Totality”, a marching homage to teutonic EBM- and proto-techno from the likes of DAF. “Gate” is an album that – like all of The Hermit’s art – will resonate for a long time and will open new emotional and spiritual doors.
