Album: Shine (2014)

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Black Egg
Album title: Melencolia
Release date: 4 September 2015
Label: [aufnahme + wiedergabe]

The main persona behind Black Egg is the French composer/singer/multiinstrumentalist UsherSan, active in the music business since late 80s, known from before as the founder of the legendary Norma Loy and Die Puppe, this time he teamed up with the Austrian soul mate Corina Nenuphar (Ghost Actor, Vile Oblique, Suicide Potion,...), and the two created an album of highly hypnotizing dark minimalism. Melencolia gives shivers, it's an album with an eerie and cold atmosphere, yet at he same time it's very intimate and somehow schizophrenic. Melencolia is maybe the most minimalistic thing Black Egg did so far, but it offers such a multidimensional sound with many layers and variations that can't be taken just like another minimal dark electro thing, and it's absolutely not. Black Egg on Melencolia created a very dense and perverse sound which drills into your mind and soul with retro psychedelic elements, that could be in a strange way connected with the retro avantgarde rock sound of Velvet Underground and even with most disturbing and provocative things The Doors did back then. Use of different instruments, from synthetic retro beats, various samples, deep pulsating bass lines, piano, rhythmic noises,..., makes the whole thing dynamic, the atmosphere is often very suspenseful, psychedelic, sometimes almost appropriate for a BDSM orgy, everything is yet well produced and arranged, giving kind of a multimensional depth. Melencolia is sickness and darkness incarnated, it's beauty and schizophrenia, it's mysterious, melancholic and perverse.
