Declaration Of Innocence

Exactly one year after the highly acclaimed ‘Dead Cities’ the man who we know better as Ah Cama-Sotz (Batman for friends) presents a new album on his own Bats and Cats label. Hidden inside a metal CD-case lies the ‘Declaration Of Innocence”, guarded by the characteristic circular logo of the Bat. In ten tracks Ah Cama-Sotz tells a story of a journey; How your inner soul is transported into another dimension. Events on this journey include a certain ‘Sacrifice’ as instructed by ‘Voices From The Dark’, a visit to ‘Warszawa’ and – albeit from a distance – watch the ‘Decline Of The Roman Empire’. And like a true journey, the view out the window is gorgeous. Varied and dynamic as we have gotten to know the talent of our tour-conductor. There are moments of deep dub with heavily distorted guitars, ambient neo-classical soundscapes, Arabian as well as ritualistic influences. And the additional vocals of Fleur Pierets turn the rockiest mountain into the Garden of Eden … With ‘Declaration Of Innocence’ Ah Cama-Sotz succeeds again in delivering an album which completely f*cks up the inside of your head and therefore changes your perspective of a world filled with Blood, Guilt, Sin and Innocence.
