“Death of the Alpinist”
Once upon a time there was a man who had the power to climb high mountains. He has achieved success who has lived well and loved much. He was the Alpinist who has never regretted he had done or said; gained the respect of honorable men, the love of beautiful women, and the admiration of little children… But there always are mountains higher than those already conquered; and this knowing would make the Alpinist cry off and rush to the peaks yet unknown. One day it happened that the Alpinist was climbing his highest mount. And when he reached the top finally – the man suddenly saw Shambhala before him, shining around and everywhere. And then it happened – he fancied himself sloping down a flight of vain yearnings which he descended step by step at each bound of his heart; and at the very end of his descent he dissolved into eternity… That is how the Alpinist died; and the Man felt utterly alone laughing not a King anymore. (The Aged Tales, 2014)

"I’m really impressed with the way Kalutaliksuak bring together so many styles and influences, because ultimately they are a band that defies description and just have to be heard to get a sense of what they’re about. Highly recommended." – by Jerry Kranitz at "Aural Innovations" (USA)

"Death of the Alpinist is a thoroughly enjoyable hour in the company of a strange band with a story to tell; intriguing, to say the least." – by Roger Trenwith at "DPRP" (UK)
