[ B O L T ] 2 bass drone ensemble from the german Ruhr area which is completed by the former Kodiak/WALL drummer in the meantime unites with the abstract electronica project biblo from Instanbul.

While [ B O L T ] emerges out of oppressive silence and ends up in ecstatic noise and drone, creating waving sounds and crushing riffs.
Biblo redefines ambient sound by bringing it closer to noise with her collages made by blustering various sounds and haunting vocals.

This is far more than a split record by two different entities that are musically located somewhere in the ambient area - it's a collaborative work.
Each of them is represented with one song and another where they are featuring the other part - despite being divided by 2500 kilometers.
The sounds of [ B O L T ] and biblo flow into another - resulting in a climax adding drums in the final collaboration song.

The [ B O L T ] songs are based on an idea they played live once. They tried to build layers that would leave spaces for biblos sounds.
The part [ B O L T ] wrote for the biblo + [ B O L T ] track should bring some (black) metal harmonies and atmosphere to biblos songs.
