Geist & the Sacred Ensemble are a collective out of Seattle that forge a doom-inflected folk ritualism; dirges tinged with Eastern psychedelia and meandering meditative trances. The opening track “On the Next Full Moon” patiently builds, evolving Geist’s funeral march into a driving vocal chant accompanied by visceral percussion and thick, swampy riffs. Frontman Michael Sauder sings with a deep and slow delivery, further heightening the groups mystic aspirations and heady sonics. At their greatest, Geist & the Sacred Ensemble’s tunes exist as an ever-changing pilgrimage; transforming their abstract drifts into apocalyptic folk hymns or private confessionals. Moon Glyph is thrilled to release Geist’s latest with Beyond This Vessel.
