Infinexhuma – “Denown” – [Aberrant Recordings]
Rock Dove 4/19/2023 A Library, CD
New release from a mysterious artist. Six tracks of serious and dark ambience with an undeniable progression at the track and album level. I’m skeptical of the prologue text and its provenance, offered “with no reason to lie,” but it got my attention. The early tracks were abstruse, moving between subterranean zones with drones varying in wateriness and reverb quite subtle for this noob. The third track introduced (in)human elements of guttural despair that were a welcome addition to the overall vibe. The experience peaked around 4 and 5 offered a compelling uprising before a transition to brutal comeuppance, loss, deracination. The last track was a bit on the nose in answering for the foregoing ordeal. The bandcamp track notes were helpful and complemented a subsequent listen.
