Drone Messiah's self titled album provides a sonic path not narrowly confined by genre. It cleverly mixes drone ambient elements with a lo-fi panoply of sounds, field recordings and gusts that would ordinarily be found in a piece from the noise genre, besides boasting the sonorous enrichment of excellent and charming artistic collaborations. Others of the 6 pieces range across a spectrum from fairly "traditional" drone/noise ambience into chill with pleasant recurring beats. This is not a "purist" album of hide-bound doctrinaire ambience, but instead a four-ply crater of ambience, noise, glitch, and melodic waves. The album features a sense of quiet determination - a kind of exploration of sound, certainly a vigorous, and worthy of attention, hybrid from those who have metaphorically left the inner soul church of faithless creed, and entered the faith of inner musical salvation.
