Vatican Shadow – “Death Is Unity With God” – [Modern Love]

Kai Sync   2/2/2016   A Library, CD



Vatican Shadow’s (Dominick Fernow) post-industrial minimal techno/ambient 3 CD set with title themes related to religious fundamentalism in USA and abroad. Destroyed and scorched but danceable drum machine patterns, dystopian synth loops, chiming percussions, harrowing chords, blurred melody lines repeating like a preacher. Some soundscapes are even homage to AFX and Autechre. The repeating themes are challenging but resolve at some point to a new sonic dimension if you are patient.
