Titled 'Baclou', this new album is a swirling piece of dark ambient, containing eight tracks. Formed only in 2017, Moloch Conspiracy delivers a surprisingly experienced sound, one which sounds mythical, ominous and emotional. Something within this set of soundscapes and drones tells me that Lacroix is somewhat of a perfectionist. 'Irridescent Lights' opens the album in perfect dark ambient tradition. You could easily use it to accompany your horror stories and fans of acts like Raison 'd Etre, Troum or Inade will certainly appreciate this. 'Bagne's Nightmares' is a first highlight, a torpid piece of dark ambient which somehow comes with some sort of pulsating drive.
Another highlight is title track 'Baclou'. It also seems to be a fan favorite on the bandcamp page and for a good reason too. This is a haunting piece of music, so narrative that it drags you down into one of those dark folklore legends. 'In The Forest' follows that example. With this one it's not so hard to close your eyes and imagine yourself wandering through ancient and haunted woods. Judging from the impending overtone of this track, not many of us would survive this adventure. The album ends with another highlight, but perhaps this record is just full of dark ambient highlights. Lingering soundscapes, eerie drones, sounds of nature trying to strangle you and often threatening percussion. If you are into those elements, 'Baclou' is a must-add to your already impressive collection.
