The first track, The Last Abjurer (feat. Phelios) is inspired by Zdzislaw Beksinski’s AA72 and blows us immediately into a dark mysterious world filled with deep spooky drones. This breath taking piece opens the surrealistic dark ambient world of NERATERRÆ’s Scenes From The Sublime. Alessio Antoni chases with this album the symbolism of paintings by Dali, Bosch, Beksinski and many more artists. He succeeds by far to capture the beauty of darkness and the enigmatic content of the painters works.
Scenes From The Sublime shows a spooky and dystopian world created with arcane soundscapes and effects pushing the dark ambient genre further into dour and oneiric atmospheres. The contributions and ideas by Alphaxone, Dödsmaskin, Leila Abdul-Rauf, Mount Shrine, Phelios, Phragments, Shrine, Xerxes The Dark and the ritual vocals of George Zafiriadis from Martyria and Yann Hagimont from Cober Ord bulldoze this album up to a possible classic dark ambient album.
Drenched in the sweat of dazzling artworks, this unearthly music projects a vantablack atmosphere. Scenes From The Sublime is a dark ambient masterpiece where a beam of light has no chance of survival. Without being flippant, this is a symbolic album of the genre.
