Betimes Black Cloudmasses is the highly-anticipated second album from Vincent de Roguin (Shora), Stephen O'Malley (SUNN0))), KTL) and Daniel O'Sullivan (Guapo). Betimes is an atmospheric, constantly changing piece that encompasses a mind-boggling array of different performance and processing techniques. The deeply psychedelic and moving results present a soundstage that is continually evolving. Betimes includes significant contributions from free percussionists Nicolas Field and Alex Babel, who sprinkle the sound field with an almost FMP-style rush of splattering drum sound, raising the intensity of the music (without resorting to bashing). The album also features a brief but affecting vocal from Ulver mastermind Kristofferson Rygg.
