Atrium Carceri - Metropolis (2015)

Band: Atrium Carceri
Album title: Metropolis
Release date: 9 June 2015
Label: Cryo Chamber

Metropolis is above all a very dark meditative journey, locked out from the illusion and takes place entirely in our former home within darkened sky and gargantuan citadels where the man once ruled as gods. Metropolis is in strong connection with the previous proper album The Untold which was released in 2013 and with which Simon took us to the origins, to the primordial metropolis and into the void where the creator abandoned us. The new epic output follows the expedition to uncover the truth about the factions in control, what happened to the long lost architect and how to open a portal back into the colorful illusion the ignorant call home. Metropolis is one of those climaxes of everything taged dark ambient. This time Simon went quite out of the genre borders and created such a stunning work of art that will leave a deep mark within the scene. With such compositions where the attention for details is essential, where subtle layers offer an otherworldy experience, yet everything is well produced and comes with a very nice artwork and just calls for many repetitions. Metropolis is a prime example how to make dark ambient music flowing and melodic, strenuous and adventurous, strong, lush and emotional, almost solemn in its very essence.

Band: Born For Bliss
Album title: Falling Back [EP]
Release date: 7 October 2016
Label: Echozone

Born For Bliss always offer to their fans a complex but often coherent and technically perfect sound. Guitar job is extraordinary, there are so many captivating and catchy well refined melodies. There are plenty of synths and different electronic loops used that addtionally give to the songs some kind of a constant cinematic feel. Soundscapes are quite hypnotic, yet everything touched by Frank Weyzig has a graceful melancholic vibe inherited in it. Don't be afraid of some experimentations and psychedelic elements that this band likes to use, they are perfectly blended into the whole structure of compositions and that makes them even more interesting and dynamic. This EP alters a bit their already great songs and shows Born For Bliss in one of the darkest versions for now, it's another testimony of what this Dutch trio is capable and another proof that we are dealing with one of the greatest bands inside the genre.
