This is not the first time we've heard from Stefan Traunmüller here at Invisible Oranges. Across his many projects and and deep insights, the multi-faceted "Dreamlord" has proven his talents time and time again. With each new project, a new level of depth is found within Traunmüller's discography -- a new style is mastered, some new nuance discovered. On his new project, the meditative and monstrous Selenite, this rule of thumb has not changed. Listen to an exclusive stream of Selenite's debut album Mahasamadi below.

While Traunmüller's previous works have operated under a blackened umbrella, Selenite offers something new, something different in what is a massive oeuvre which spans decades. A funeral doom project, Selenite's majestic, harrowing sounds expound upon the sadness and longing found within Traunmüller's discography and expands them into a desolate landscape. Mahasamadi's reflective, exalted doom metal uses its tempo (read as: slow, even lugubrious) as a means of exploring atmosphere and melody, growing upon itself and becoming truly mammoth.

Mahasamadi releases October 21st via Seance Records.
