Despite the great diversity of artists, the record is vehemently solid and consistent, and follows a very somber, genuine, sinister and inhospitable atmosphere. With a general calm and serene tranquility that explores elusive nuances, solitary confinements and hopeless invisible places of eternal disdain and disillusion, Superspectrum manages to be a terrific compilation, that reunites in one record the best artists of the genre the underground scenario has to offer.
As usual for the genre, the general harmonies are calm, peaceful and quiet, but deep into the melodies, relies the greater doom of a more sinister and improbable expectation, that emerges ostensibly contaminated by a radical and dangerous wave of fear, anguish, apprehension and affliction. All thirteen tracks are exceedingly captivating in the way they absorb the abnormal and splendid ecstatic features of the genre. Although all tracks are exceptionally phenomenal, Oblivion, by Xerxes The Dark, Breath, by Heliocentrism and Ceremony, by Sonologyst, deserves special mention. Nonetheless, all of these musicians are superb in their capacity to filter, to exasperate, to exterminate, and to compose an aggressive, and yet calmly anxious and afflictively agonizing atmosphere of imponderable and exhilaratingly oppressive sonorous ordeal.
Superspectrum is a marvelous compilation. If you are a dark ambient supporter, you should listen to this wonderful album without any hesitation. You will be instantly captivated by it. Without a single moment of boredom or monotony, Superspectrum is a monumental Dark Ambient compilation. One that really deserves all attention from the genre enthusiasts, everywhere.
