Amalgam is an ambitious project from Ghost of Wood which aims to weave an eclectic collection of musical influences with a diverse group of musicians, and refract it into a cohesive whole.
Inspired by shifting, undulating album-length tracks such as Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield and Kate Bush’s A Sky of Honey, and the brooding, menacing soundtracks for Twin Peaks and Fire Walk With Me, Amalgam takes the listener on a strange, looping, hypnotic journey.
