Immerse well received. Podcasts, year end lists & reviews.

Periskop Immerse review in Beat Magazine February 2016

It is now about half a year since the Periskop full-length Immerse was released on Kabalion Records. The material is originally from 2000-2008 but significant effort was put into remodeling it in 2014-2015, so that it would become a coherent whole. It is rewarding to look back on all this and see that it has been well received. Considering Immerse is basically long depressing tracks with low to no tempo and arguably only abstract sounds and noises, this has been a pleasant surprise.

From my vantage point, the reception has been manifested by various positive conversations and online exchanges. It has also been evident in more formal ways, as Immerse has been featured in numerous reviews, year end lists and podcasts.

With this post I would like to say thank you for the support to whoever has appreciated, bought or proliferated the release.
