Roach, Steve & Byron Metcalf, Tales from the Ultra Tribe

"Emerging as a fire-breathing life form, this deep trance-shamanic-atmospheric collaboration between Steve Roach and Byron Metcalf evokes the primordial caverns and aeon-blasted landscapes of their groundbreaking The Serpent’s Lair (Projekt, 2000). And yet on Tales From the Ultra Tribe, a new sound emerges. It’s a lucid trance-groove experience, a searing combination of acoustic percussion and hyper-dimensional electronic rhythms. The Ultra Tribe are the future primitives: the future-tech foundation wrapped by the organic. It’s no longer clear where the human ends and the machine begins. The eight pieces on Tales From the Ultra Tribe are built into a seamless 74-minute deep-journey experience. AMBIENTBLOG.NET: “With a multi-dimensional trance-groove trajectory, the sound is a tribal-electronic well of visionary power, mystery and visceral awe that envelops the listener.” "
