2nd CD album released 2000. for Twilight Command Records, a sublabel of well known NER (New European Recordings) through Tesco Distribution, and owner of labels Douglas Pearce from Death in June.
The material is made between 1995-1997.
For lovers of dark ambient, ritual ambient, drone, experimental music.

"In reality it is stunning dark ambient atmospheric works much in the vein of Lustmord, Inade and Yen Pox.

These tracks are atmospheres sounding if derived from barren windswept battle fields long after the conflict has ended, yet remnants of twisted and discarded implements of war still visibly scattered across the ground. The tracks also ranging in length from 7 to 16 minutes each, further illustrates the drawn out nature of the compositions. In the middle of the opening piece ‘JALDABAOTH’ a low chant filters into the mix for a fleeting instant, the track then taking a tangent off to noisier machine grinding textures.
Ritualized percussive textures & cavernous dungeon sounds work fantastically on ‘ABERTH’, the main section of echoed and treated hand percussion being a particular standout. The sweeping barren soundscapes are again employed on ‘THE EIGHT SKY’, the various echoed treatments launching the tense drones out into the infinite distance.

Subtler deep droning sound elements are toyed with on ‘THE SHADOW INTEGRATION’, hints of choir like textures floating somewhere off in the distance. At around the 6 minute mark a slow, cripplingly heavy beat arrives as a ritualistic sound element as a slow horn tune also introduces itself. Of the remaining tracks, they play out in similar style intermixing the ritualistic sounds and dense echoed drones, yet the final track ’HYBRIS’ has the most focused orchestral sound with a prominent looped horn tune.

"Theriomorphic Spirits" displays surprising musical tension out of the hearing limitations and boundaries, constantly expanding the field of view. TeHÔM prepared a great album with a dark atmosphere for all music fanatics profound hearing capacity."
