After gaining fundamental experiences in several guitardriven bands for many years, Peter Wolff became a founding member of the spheric black metal band Downfall of Gaia. Being one of their main songwriters, he highly influenced the sound and forged it to its acclaimed mixture of raging black metal speed and athmospheric dreamlike soundscapes.
Downfall of Gaia’s output was received well by worldwide listeners as well as by the music industry. Thus, they released two Albums on one of the worlds biggest record labels for hard sounds, Metal Blade Records, and toured every continent, including countries like the USA, Russia, Australia and Japan. After 8 years, he felt that it was time for him to head towards different sonic shores and he left the band in peace and mutual respect.
The new work of multi-instrumentalist Peter Wolff is dominated by spheric and moviescore like sounds, reducing the distorted guitar and opening up for piano, synthesizers, strings and some well placed drums. The result presents fluent and hypnotizing acoustic sculptures to the listener. Names like Max Richter, Johann Johannsson or Bohren & der Club of Gore come to your mind while enjoying Peters latest compositions though his creation has its unique flavour and leads you to musical pathes you have never walked before.
Repeat will be released on February 23rd on My Proud Mountain and is available for pre-order through here. Listen to the track ‘Destroy’ here:
