“Unforgiving Landscapes” is a 2-song, 44-minute experiment in sound that presents Idre’s most somber and monumental material to date. Building on their 2014 self-titled debut, the music and lyrical themes explore the immense and spacial elements of doom, the raw, murky, and grim depths of dark rock and goth, the dynamic, ethereal architecture of neo-classical and ambient music, the eerie, mythical vision and twang of American folk and western scores, coupled with the emotional torment and range of tensions that reside within us and our environment, delivered in a context best summarized as Idre. The release moves beyond its predecessor in weight and mass. Rich in single-note riffing and textured guitars, thunderous, airy percussion, and deep, minimalistic bass tones, while despairing vocals artfully reside in the void.

Tracked in analog in 2016 at Breathing Rhythm Studio in Norman, OK, and Dust house in Oklahoma City by Steve Boaz and Atlee Hickerson, “Unforgiving Landscapes” was mixed by Atlee Hickerson, mastered by Chris Harris at Hook Echo Sound in Seattle, WA, and features photography/design work by drummer Nicholas Wojcik. Guest vocal appearances on “Prison Skin” by Lacey Elaine Tackett (of Cherry Death) and harpist M. Bailey Stephenson (AKA sun riah).
