Besides the ostensibly slow harmonies prevalent on the album, here the calmness of sound, the exhilaration of silence and the anxiety of expectation are brilliantly combined, to greatly express the agonizing drifts of the genre. Like a slow shadow descending into the nothingness of an abyss of conformity and obscurity, Eprom revolves around a salutary, creative and deep understanding of the genre, as the two musicians behind the project magnificently elaborate – from a genuine correlation of concept – their own style of sound.
Contrary to a lot of other albums on the genre, Eprom is coherent, lucid, discreet and evasive, and you never gets resented of any boredom. Astoundingly building a resonating wall of delusional musicality – although the sound is merely concrete – Eprom is a great example of a Dark Ambient album done in the right way. It’s never vague or tedious, and its primary harmonic expansions are quite unique. A strongly recommended album, it’s by far one of the best I’ve heard on the genre. With very singular tracks – each one having its own musical characteristics –, but retaining a solid unity, Eprom is a very good record! Far from being redundant, ordinary or generic, this is an impeccable album, that not only deeply comprehends dark ambient, but thoroughly and truly communicates to the listener the real meaning and the primary purpose behind the genre.
The right choice for each and every enthusiast of dark ambient, Eprom, by Diaspora Psichica, have the potential to become a reference in the genre. With an impressive sonorous quality that easily functions as a bridge between the reverberation of a marvelous sound and the ecstatic dread of a very subtle, but hopefully imminent darkness, this album has everything the genre demands, combined in the right order, with the correct components, exactly as it should! Nobody could have done this better.
