I think that if I name to you Patrick Leagas, there's no need to explain his history... you know... Death In June, Sixth Comm, Mother Destruction, etc. Well, as far as we know, Patrick decided to close the Sixth Comm chapter with the "One Mans Hel" album (here reviewed time ago, so make a search on the reviews section) and now he's focusing on the new project called Godlesstate. With this one, he just released a self named CD on Hagshadow containing eleven new tracks.. Influenced by his interest in archeology and social/spiritual history of mankind, Patrick created something deeply connected to nature. Frequently he takes his bike and travels through England just to stop into places that he feels connected to and, there, he passes some time to take inspiration. Because of this process, I see him like a shaman which is creating his own way to talk to gods and tracks like "Cedar Forest" or the following "Enkidu's Wildness" are the proof that he's good into that, because they have an hypnotic effect on me. Most of the track are based on many percussive sounds with layers of electronic effects, blow instruments and chants. "Ice Voyage", instead, is a track on its own, because it's based on orchestral sounds, natural sounds, spoken word and it's really taking you somewhere else. If I should picture it, it's like looking to the ocean from a cliff. Also "Doggerland", is another track where orchestrations are mixed with synth frequencies and it's really breathtaking with its ten minutes of length where a apparent calm is taking you to a journey through time. You know, after listening to "Godlesstate" for the third time, I'm finding myself writing sparse sentences because I'm really into the sounds and into the atmospheres created and this is what music should provoke: a total absorption.
