First pressing of Chris Bozzone’s Phantom Flowers solo album. Heavy black 180 gram vinyl with beautiful cover art by Matthew Jaffe. Graphic design by Nick Lane.
Chris Bozzone’s album “Phantom Flowers” blends haunting vocals with atmospheric soundscapes that are full of rich synthesizer textures, heavily processed electric guitar and minimalist spectral drones. This hallucinatory sound is a mixture of nightmarish songs and fantastical instrumental tracks that are full of mysterious beauty and otherworldly undercurrents. Poetic lyrics combine with melodic compositions and experimental techniques.
“Phantom Flowers” is a highly unique and dreamlike album that is a sonic journey which blurs lines of clear classification. It touches upon a love of weird fiction, European horror films and art cinema, 20th-century avant-garde classical and electro-acoustic music, American minimalist composers, black metal, and an assortment of post-industrial British projects. Key musical touchstones include Coil, Nico, Scott Walker, Fabio Frizzi, Goblin, Andrzej Korzynski, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, SUNN O))), Ulver, Keiji Haino, Terry Riley and La Monte Young.
Known for his soundtrack work with Cadabra Records, Chris Bozzone has composed and performed a wide array of classic and esoteric horror fiction scores for the label. His soundtracks include immortal works by H.P. Lovecraft, Arthur Machen, Thomas De Quincey, Edgar Allan Poe, Edogawa Rampo and Thomas Ligotti.
