Gary Figueroa Charles Farewell has put forth a remarkably nuanced and cerebral record filled with gorgeous tribal ambient moments, trance percussion and a surreal journey in which to let yourself go. An uninterrupted listen gives this record its due and truly rewards the listener. However, be forewarned... Hints of melancholy shade much of this CD while the exotic electronics anchor the album in Asura's trademark style. It's an interesting sonic palette to enjoy. Favorite track: Celestial Tendencies.

MIB63 ASURA's best and most adventurous/varied album IMO. The remaster sounds great too. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Five Lines.

Scott Fantastic -- this album has it all and then some...is Asura even from this planet? The title track is a masterpiece of ambient trance (and it always makes me drive far, far too fast!). Favorite track: Life².

about

Remaster 2015
Initial release date : 7/7/2007

The Asura project went through several mutations since its acclaimed first album Code Eternity (Ultimae), one of the best sellers in psychill ambient , at first considered an outsider in the scene, it now stands as a sonic landmark for many music passionates.

Lost Eden (TV Matters), their follow up release signed the band's consecration in the US and Germany.
In 2005 Charles Farewell took up the project as a solo.

[ Life² ] will mark its time as the return of the original Asura sound. With 10 strong tracks; melodic echoes, astoundingly composed.
Aramean tribal rhythms, ethereal duduks, hypnotic basslines, symphonic orchestrations, fusion of gentleness and strength blending into acid themes.

The outcome is melancholic yet positive, as any renewal would be, a tangible passage, sort of a second life...
