Alphaxone - Absence Of Motion (2016)

Band: Alphaxone
Album title: Absence Of Motion
Release date: 25 August 2015
Label: Cryo Chamber

Alphaxone reaches into a whole new dimension with Absence Of Motion. Within seconds of listening it is apparent that he is stepping outside his comfort zone this time around. This album is significantly more cinematic than his previous releases. I would even go so far as to say it reminds me at times of Sabled Sun. This is a cinematic experience much like that of Sabled Sun, in that we seem to be following a protagonist through the album from first encounter with a new life form to the final ascent into deep space. Every second of this album is full of life: organic, synthetic, or a war between the two. Absence Of Motion is a thrilling ride. Absence Of Motion may be portraying an alien abduction or the use of futuristic machinery we can only begin to phathom, the full interpretation is up to the individual. This is an easy listen compared to some other releases in the genre, with the intensity and bass levels only soaring at moments giving the listener time to relax and reflect upon all the otherworldly wonders this Absence Of Motion has to offer. A masterpiece by Alphaxone that is sure to resonate for some time!

Band: The Flatfield
Album title: Manie Sans Délire

Label: Gothic Music Records

The Flatfield become one of the most promising acts in the current gothic/post punk scene. The atmospheric keyboards together with the creaking guitars create their characteristic sound, a really interesting approach that evolves from the typical 80s post-punk sound providing a personal soundscape with reminiscences of different dark styles like gothic rock, death rock and darkwave. With Manie Sans Délire they went one step further, adding new elements to their sound, reaching a more mature level.
