TAR106 Dodecahedron - Live in Leiden 2017
Dodecahedron is releasing a unique mini-album called ‘Live in Leiden 2017’ via the Dutch tape label Tartarus records. The release, containing four songs of both their untitled album and their sophomore album ‘kwintessens’ marks the final performance of now former lead singer M. Eikenaar.
“This may very well be the most honest and purest Dodecahedron has ever sounded thus far on record. We are proud to work together with the renowned Tartarus records, and by doing so expressing our gratitude and companionship to M. Eikenaar. This release is a fine way of closing a chapter and celebrate a successful collaboration.”

"When one reaches the zenith, the fulcrum of sorts, there is no option but to ponder the machinations of position and posture. The superimposition of patterns, so human, so full of folly.
Hverfjall. A magnitude drawing lines into being, a mass which seems to crush its surroundings into meek oblivion. A metaphor, surely?
How to weave these patterns, these lines, into a sensible being, there’s the rub. Is one to grab and shape as one wants, or should entropy be allowed to bring it all to a natural conclusion. Here one stands, willing this into existence. Come forth elements, and be subdued. Force and fire is me."
