Annwn, Annwfn, or Annwfyn (in Middle Welsh, /ˈænuːn/ Annwvn, Annwyn, Annwyfn, Annwvyn, or Annwfyn) is the Otherworld in Welsh mythology. Ruled by Arawn (or, in Arthurian literature, by Gwyn ap Nudd), it was essentially a world of delights and eternal youth where disease was absent and food was ever-abundant. It became identified with the Christian afterlife in paradise (or heaven).
Ocrilim is also a solo project, but there are no drum machines to be found here. The entire album uses the same instrumentation: two distorted electric guitars (one in each channel) and one (heavily fuzzed-out) bass. Barr's playing style and solid-state guitar tone are unmistakable, and the seven untitled pieces here could have only been recorded by him, it seems.
Annwn is a music studio album recording by OCRILIM (Tech/Extreme Prog Metal/Progressive Rock) released in 2008 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. 1. Annwn 1 (13:04) 2. Annwn 2 (15:22) 3. Annwn 3 (8:59) 4. Annwn 4 (10:17) 5. Annwn 5 (13:05) 6. Annwn 6 (11:24) 7. Annwn 7 (7:24).
But Annwn is a little unkind to most every audience, save perhaps the most attentive. It's more of a workshop than an album, really. Casual listeners will get lost in Barr's long-form excursions after 90 seconds. If you're willing to hang on Barr's every riff and layer time and again, Annwn is full of rewards
