Definitely, it is one of the most effective and sinister dark ambient albums that I’ve ever heard. The atmosphere is tense and intense, the melodies are genuinely frightening. You feel a deep sense of imminent demise expanding through the vastness of your conscience all the way through, as empty cathedrals comes to mind, and an everlasting night of deathly downfall ruins encircles all eternity, with the transgressed embryos of its latent fugacious splendor.
All along the way, the impeccable talent of the artist behind the project becomes highly prominent. With some synthesizers that occasionally brings a more colorful “life” to its more black and white doomed “substance”, even in its surreal ocean of despondency, the versatility and the proficiency of the artist is incredibly natural. With an inherent sordid reality that comes clean in the surface of its delightful harmonies, there is an imponderable ghostly sensibility easy to be felt, as tension is built mostly in the protuberant vicinities of the melodies, that dives deeply in the somnolent eminence of its fugacious tapestry, where a monumental restlessness, that is not always apparent, but it’s there, calmly rises, with the aim to be filtered and appreciated with all the melancholy and anxious agony that the rhythmic dissonance of its malevolent nature is able to dispose.
The artist really understands everything about timing and dissonance, the profoundness of the harmonies play high levels at the insidious expressiveness of its dense and marvelously lurid musicality. Jon – Psalms Of Annihilation is a very tense and restless album, that explores with marvelous competence the most abrasive, sinister and macabre elements of the genre. Definitely, it’s not for beginners. You have to have a strong stomach, and a very urgent sense of self-reliance. Believe me, this is one of the most brutal and tense dark ambient albums ever created. As the album plays, skeleton machines leaves the forums of a tormented agony, to reach you fast at the darkness of your ever latent despondency. Never to be the same again.
