Coatepec/Sian Ka’an Split. GreySun Records (GSR013)
A new Coatepec track that is on a different path than the ambient guitar drone of the last release, this song adds Meso American tribal instruments to the guitar drones as well.
Sian Ka’An (sky Born) is is Mayan inspired trance music. This track is made up of layered pre Colombian flutes,drums,and rattles.
This is not a metal tape. This tape was not done in such a small number because its cool release hyper limted recordings, but because it’s not something I saw being highly sought after. I also liked the idea of the pvc case and decided there would be two versions. Please do not upload to the internet.
