This twenty-five minutes lasting epos is a dark ambient soundtrack for a book compiling works from Dehn Sora's exhibitions over the past few years. Both are meant to be enjoyed simultaneously, watching the photographs while listening to the music. Both have this strange, eerie atmosphere and thus fit perfectly together. Yet, since I'm not an art reviewer, let's focus on the music because it can perfectly stand on its own. Besides, it's quite hard to look at pictures while trying to write a review.
Anyway, what you can expect from this album is somehow exactly what you can expect from a label like Cyclic Law: high quality dark ambient with plenty of variation. Names like Ulf Söderberg or Raison D'Etre often come to mind but on the same time it also fits in perfectly with music from modern day drone acts like CHVE or Thisquietarmy. That being said, in a way you could regard this album as a bridge between the dark ambient scene at the beginning of this century and today's drone/ambient scene which seems to be rooted in sludge and doom metal.
'Yeah yeah, but is it any good?' you might asked, and for that I should really slap you in the face. Of course it's good. This is a brilliant piece of dark ambient, created by a highly creative and talented person. Fans of the genre could blindly trust this to be a welcome addition to their already extensive collection. Soundscapes, eerie voices and minimal but varied percussion create something out of this world, which is way too awesome to ignore.
