Geist and the Sacred Ensemble forge a doom-inflected folk ritualism; dirges tinged with Eastern psychedelia and meandering meditative trances. The singing is with a deep and slow delivery, further heightening the groups mystic aspirations and heady sonics. At their greatest, Geist and the Sacred Ensemble’s tunes exist as an ever-changing pilgrimage; transforming their abstract drifts into apocalyptic folk hymns or private confessionals. In addition to acoustic and electric guitars, bass and percussion kits. They use gongs, gamelans, banjo and tools like power drills, hammers and chains to add texture.
