We return to the format of a CD, a double one at that, with four dark ambient projects from four different countries, and all of which are unknown to me. First there is from Portugal one Hulduefni, who has four pieces in which the guitar plays an all important role, howling about in a true metal fashion, but shrill, with lots of feedback, except perhaps in 'Intergalactic Space', which I immediately thought was his best piece. The other ones sounded truly old-fashioned, but this piece of mutated guitar sounds was tranquil and out of the ordinary.
I Am Esper hails from America and in the booklet we see his statement 'animals first, humanity never' (not that animals will ever care about music, I thought and perhaps making no music would be of more help to animal life? What do I know?), which might be all a bit Merzbow inspired? He too might use the guitar but arrives at more interesting results. It started of with 'Cosmic Dreams', a very mellow piece of drones, which worked very refined in terms of dark ambient. His 'Cosmic Death I' has a bouncing, looped rhythm played on the guitar, with some great hissy effects, and slowly cascading away. The second part of this track is close to twenty-eight minutes and is all about harsh noise with tons of feedback jumping around like hitting his distortion a lot or not. This I didn't care about.
The second disc has four pieces by Paleozoic from Belarus, more guitars and more effects, especially reverb is again a hot item here. But his four pieces, unformed as they seemed, were not bad. Chilling, cold, loud at times, but apart from the old-fashioned 'Immobility. Indifference And Toughness', the other three worked pretty well. Dark and atmospheric; as promised on the box.
And finally, from Russia, Satanath, who says 'save the planet, destroy all of humanity' (these are not really people who want to sell a disc or two, it seems; who do they consider their fans to be?). He has the most tracks, which are also the shortest. He's also the one that has the most variety when it comes to using sounds, instruments and techniques. Rhythm plays some role when hitting the guitar, although it sometimes slips away into a morass of sound effects, such as in 'Satnagor'. In 'Um Moktud' there are various keyboards in play and in 'Daralao' even a drum machine hammering away to end with drum & bass in 'Sotekius'; while some of this wasn't bad, it seemed to me as if Satanath hasn't made up his mind yet what he wanted with his music. Maybe, with the wish of humanity disappearing it doesn't matter?
