Guided by a spirit of self-transcendence, Fluisteraars sought to indulge in a deep current of animalistic urge. From murky depths to the high towers of the soul, “Gegrepen…” is an exaltation of a new language, a breaking down of barriers and revaluation of underlying routine. Utilizing a minimalist and spontaneous recording style proved fruitful in this endeavor: only doing one take of every instrument, only recording the natural acoustics of the room instead of the close-up registration of sound so ingrained in modern production. The duo recorded exactly one song each studioday. No overdubs, no synths – they started every day by setting up a new sound palette for each song.

This focus on creative process becomes abundantly clear when opener ‘Het Overvleugelen der Meute’ immediately bursts out towards the listener in a torrent of extrasensory vision. It does not take long before the trademark compositional competence the band is known for comes into clear focus: the tempest clouds part ways and exquisite melodic lines weave a tapestry of dreamlike imagery. Finally, the listener is lulled into a trancelike percussive meditation before ‘Brand Woedt in mijn Graf’ continues onwards within a realm of strange weightlessness, interjected by forceful moments of downpour. Closer ‘Verscheuring in de Schemering’ is Fluisteraars’ longest song to date, clocking in at more than twenty minutes. A dizzying volley of arrows pierces the mind, but the duo’s quiver never seems to empty. Perhaps the most urgent piece on “Gegrepen”, it’s regenerative quality and injections of free-form improvisation cleanses the soul. If Tangerine Dream decided to record a black metal album, this is what it would sound like.
