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

Gotta love the Ocrilim coffee mug! One of the coolest pre-order promotions I've seen.
