Raison D’etre – “Metamorphyses ” – [Cold Meat Industry]

SAL 9000   3/16/2007   A Library, CD

This dark ambient piece is aptly named because the album has six tracks and is compiled as though it is six stages or phases of something. When listening to the tracks in order, each track builds upon the previous one, leading the listener on a journey into something errie.

It climaxes in track four, then track six takes you back to the beginning. Metamorphyses is a combination of a very cleverly engineered organic and vivid sounds invoking the sense of inner drama and is both calm and intense soundscapes. Awsome!

Atrium Carceri – “Kapnobatai ” – [Cold Meat Industry]

SAL 9000   3/16/2007   A Library, CD

This is a third release by the artist named Simon Heath. The definition of the title of the release, Kapnobatai, means Those Who Walk In Smoke, and the music is dark ambient. This album is very riveting and seductive, and is lavishly illustrated throughout with scary and mystical sound effects. You will hear: breathing, someone walking in gravel, rain, thunder, computer bleeps and someone crying and people speaking and storytelling in Japanese. All the sounds are so vivid, you feel like you’re there. It is not obvious what is going on in the story. Perhaps the listeners can draw their own conslusions as to what it might be. But it’s an excellent album which will definitely grab and hold your attention.
