  • SLIPDRIVE: Cosmos Redshift 7 DL Self Released

    Posted 2019-01-07 14:42:16 by: Deleted Member

    SLIPDRIVE: Cosmos Redshift 7         DL  Self Released It seems like a small age since I last heard anything from Keef Baker.  Of course he has been busy playing live for other acts since sadly folding his main project (under his own name) and he has dipped his toes in other work; but it has been ...

  • [BASEMENTGRRR]: Destroy Everything CD Raumklang Music

    Posted 2019-01-07 14:38:34 by: Deleted Member

    [BASEMENTGRRR]: Destroy Everything   CD  Raumklang Music I have always found [basementgrrr] to be a bit of an oddity musically speaking (let alone the name), where the lines between genres are clearly evident and don’t make comfortable bedfellows, due to the nature of styles colliding. On ‘Destroy Everything’, there is clear evidence of this approach once ...

  • DIRK GEIGER: Dreams Die Quietly CD Raumklang Music

    Posted 2019-01-07 14:36:39 by: Deleted Member

    DIRK GEIGER: Dreams Die Quietly     CD   Raumklang Music A surprising twist in approach here and an ultimately darker one with Geiger drawing on murky ambient as the bedrock to his latest release and as a lover of all that is Dark Ambient, this is a welcome listen personally as well. Solitary Morse like bleeps echo ...

  • ACCESS TO ARASKA / ERODE / DIRK GEIGER: Reports From the Abyss CD Raumklang Music

    Posted 2019-01-07 14:33:15 by: Deleted Member

    ACCESS TO ARASKA / ERODE / DIRK GEIGER: Reports From the Abyss     CD   Raumklang Music Combining their talents and working collectively as one band, was always going to raise questions as to what the output would be when placing these three individual acts together as a whole; and the results are somewhat surprising given ...

  • [BASEMENTGRRR]: [HURT] CD Raumklang Music

    Posted 2019-01-07 14:29:58 by: Deleted Member

    [BASEMENTGRRR]: [HURT]   CD Raumklang Music The fundamentals of this third album from Ralf Gatzen are on point.  Cinematic electronics and key attention to vocalisations give ‘[HURT]’ a form of gravitas I haven’t encountered before with this project; and the opening gambit, ‘Rituals’ is a prime example of everything Ralf can do well when he is ...

  • ARKTAU EOS: Catacomb Resonator LP/CD/MC Aural Hypnox

    Posted 2018-11-09 14:36:43 by: Deleted Member

    ARKTAU EOS: Catacomb Resonator     LP/CD/MC   Aural Hypnox From an oversized CD wallet to the LP/MC/CD boxed set, Aural Hypnox really are making waves with their output now; and all are gloriously hand printed and customised as well. The album itself is one long 37-minute track (broken up for vinyl with extra tracks on the cassette); ...

  • AEOGA Obsidian Outlander LP/CD Aural Hypnox

    Posted 2018-11-09 14:34:51 by: Deleted Member

    AEOGA Obsidian Outlander       LP/CD Aural Hypnox The solo project of Antii Haapapuro has gained great momentum output wise, with a continuous flow of engaging Dark Ambient that grinds into motion with the gripping ‘Initiatory Boil’, teetering on ritualism with its rumbling percussive elements. These clatters of sound make a vague appearance along the path this ...

  • HALO MANASH: Elemental Live Forms MMV-Initiation CD Aural Hypnox

    Posted 2018-11-09 14:32:58 by: Deleted Member

    HALO MANASH: Elemental Live Forms MMV-Initiation     CD Aural Hypnox First things first, the packaging on this album is splendid.  Housed in a screen-printed cardboard cover, the CD is accompanied by an eight-page booklet alongside eight postcard inserts in a stamped envelope, ultimately feeling quality; and value for money. Comprising of nine previously unreleased movements, presented ...

  • ARKTAU EOS: Mirrorion CD Aural Hypnox

    Posted 2018-11-09 14:30:39 by: Deleted Member

    ARKTAU EOS: Mirrorion    CD   Aural Hypnox Being devoid of electric instrumentation gives this album a distinct analogue feel; but then a lot of Aural Hypnox’s roster approaches their Dark Ambient in this manner.  Given the title and the artwork (especially the limited version), there is a feeling of light breaking through the dark clouds that ...

  • HALO MANASH: Haudattujen Valvoja CD Aural Hypnox

    Posted 2018-11-09 14:28:44 by: Deleted Member

    HALO MANASH: Haudattujen Valvoja    CD   Aural Hypnox Another album in the “Sublunar” series of Halo Manash’s prolific output; exploring the nether regions of ritual ambience and pitch black persona, which appears to be their overall forte full-stop. Creeping and desolate, there isn’t that much to differ between releases; and this groups ethos seems to be ...
