Digre - Helige Serafim av Sarov

By in News, Streams | 2 Comments

Swedish electronic artist Digre released Helige Serafim av Sarov earlier this month, following up last year’s The Way of a Pilgrim. This dungeon synth EP can be streamed below, and it is available on cassette tape via bandcamp as well.

Digre included the following blurb about the release:

Holy Seraphim of Sarov was born around 1760 and died in 1833. He is one of the Russian Orthodox Church’s primary spiritual teachers who, after a strictly ascetic life in loneliness and silence, appeared as a prophet and a caregiver.

“Acquiring the Spirit of God is the true aim of our Christian life.” It is the essence of the message that the Holy Seraphim teaches us and what he has to say about the meaning of Christian life is something that affects us all.

Thanks for posting this. Since the first time you mentioned Digre, I’ve felt like this guy could totally soundtrack a Castlevania game. Also, I love the insanely obscure crossover appeal invoked by Digre’s music:
“Okay, do you like liturgies? You do? Okay, cool. Now…(sighs), do you like chiptunes?”

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
