Servitor / Press

“Servitor Sanctum 7 is an American solo-project which here delivers its official debut CD. The music is mainly based on percussion, which injects a typical tribal influence. It seems to have taken quite a long time to achieve this first opus, but the least I can say is that it’s an astonishing composition. The mix of authentic drums and machines leads the listener to pure shamanic sound. The ultra tribal drum sections are sometimes excelling to a total trance apotheosis. “The Marriage Of Earth And Iron” can be defined as the union between ‘world’ music and industrial sound. I can’t compare this project to any other formation and that’s for sure a real good point. Servitor Sanctum 7 isn’t unique in its approach, but in sound. Among the most noticeable tracks I’ll mention “Nekkara Ul Nekhain”, “Tubbaelecatra” and especially “Alito Slavus”. This is a release I can strongly recommend to all lovers of percussion and tribal work.”

“Sounding a bit in the area of Savage Republic with a electronic tribal feel. The complete CD sounds like an atmospherically scary movie soundtrack, like the dark dungeon Silence of the Lambs quality. It is these amazing releases that often go unnoticed due to their limited distribution, although it IS listed on Amazon as an MP3 download. If you liked the dark tracks on Coil’s Horse Rotovator you will LOVE this CD. You MUST listen to this in a completely dark room, in its entirety.”

“From the earliest tribal days to the modern industrial pound, the drum remains the backbone of music. In his debut album, The Marriage of Earth and Iron, Servitor Sanctum 7 brings the spectrum of drums past and present together in a melding of old and new, banging out 12 tribal industrial tracks. The title of the album says it all: Servitor has joined the techniques of ritual tribal with electro/industrial for a sound that screams for movement and dance. The entire album is a continuous movement of energetic drum, from the beginning of the haunting and racing “Interas” to the screaming and grinding end of “Nava Earsen.” Servitor doesn’t let up for a second, combining the modes of Afro-Caribbean and Middle Eastern drumming with grinding electronics and bass. Elements of aggro and noize blend with ethnic motifs. Servitor’s high-energy debut is excellently crafted and performed.”
