'Nemeton' is the new studio album from seetyca on the Winter-Light label and we are very pleased to have this fine artist on our roster. In the ancient Celtic tradition, a Nemeton was a sacred space, primarily situated in natural areas, often sacred groves of trees.
The album 'Nemeton' will take you to your own sacred place, as it hints at what lies hidden, ever deeper in the thick forests and darkened woods of Germany. A lo-fi master piece in dark ambient, the six tracks on this CD invoke feelings of apprehension, wonder and longing for a place never visited in the flesh but often travelled to in the minds eye. A place that lies tantalising just out of reach in the distance but that at any moment can become all consuming and enveloping. Encompassing you in thick dark layers of ambience and transporting you to a space from which there is no return.
CD is strictly limited to 300 copies in a 6-panel digipack. 6 tracks, total running time 79:30.

"Different shades of the same color rule the emotions that inspire this album. Ambient should be like that, the compositions should be different enough to not bore the listener, nor be accused of taking the easy way, and recording on the hoof. But at the same time it should be consistent enough not to disturb the listener’s inner journey. “Nemeton” guarantees that. A reliable work." - Stark
"This is a wondrous example of how engrossing dark ambient can be when executed with a combination of patience and careful attention to detail. It is grounded in theme but not restricted by it; it is expansive and immediate. You can let it envelop you, or have it provide an ideal backdrop. This is my first experience with Seetyca, but it will not be my last." - Edward Rinderle
"The broadening, highly atmospheric, gloomy and dark drone ambiences and environmental sounds making up the almost 80 minutes fit to the misty, damp and colder conditions of the fall and winter season. Moreover, the 6-track inner journey is one of highly minimalism and consistent, slow shifting textural spheres touching trance and meditative like states occasionally. " - Bert Strolenberg
