Many collaborative albums often sound one sided...It's as
is one of the artists takes the lead and claims dominance
over the entire work.Another common issue is they turn out
sounding like a rushed afterthought.It seems like some people
just do not truly comprehend the concept of what a collaboration
actually is.Often they end up chaotic and unorganized as well
which can work great for a harsh noize project but not so much
for artists in many other genres.In this case howerver..NONE of
this is an issue at all.Both projects blend together in perfect
unison becoming a new entity composed of aspects of each other.
Also they manage to accomplish a true collaborative effort in
every sense of the word.Both artists agreed on what they wished
to create and made it happen without ignoring the smallest detail.
Joined in an audio intercourse of sorts...This is what they birthed.
I.) VORTICES:
Low rising of sounds build as the seconds pass.In this piece we have
dark ambience synths that mimic great ocean waves crashing against the
rocks as if knocking on doors that have long been shut to all humanity.
After being battered by great force they finally  open like the cradle
of life...Bringing about acid tears that sting like the embers of a tall
fire.This entire track soaks you from head to toe with a sense of yearning.
Causing your flesh to awaken into the upmost realms of light.It feels almost
electric as it makes your skin tingle as if serpents are winding across your body.
It raises the hairs on the back of your neck with it's roaring winds and haunting
synths.This almost sounds like screams of the earth itself as it's eyes awaken from
centuries of slumber.The song lingers with and within you as a pulse in your ears long
after it closes.Rumbles and vibrations are like that of a rushing river through your veins.
Listen closely as it enlightens you revealing the secrets it holds.Shifts in direction tie in
perfectly.Not distrupting but adding to the experiance that is building evermore with distorted
white noise as it begins descending across the land filling every corner and depth with it's
ever changing essence.
II.) SCORCHED HYMNAL:
It's that moment when all the world seems to spin and spin and soon you can't tell whats
up or down.Unsure of just whats reeling you to the ground and what ever music may be heard
is so warped and stretched like a wonderous dream that you lose all account of your senses.
While in this unfamiliar place it almost scares you...Yet you find yourself hipnotized by the
chimes of organs and piano like noises filling and seeping into your pores.This almost reminds
me of that old story of when Faust met the devil in a dark valley next to a rotting tree...Or so
it's been told...No one truly knows but songs like these bare many secrets.But if you desire to
aquire you shall recieve it's sorrowful truths.All joyful memoirs that had once been have been
scorched long ago.The effects used on this beautiful drone sound like they are being flowed through
a massive tube of flangers and other cosmic sounds.All narrows in just as well as surounds giving you
it's full attention.Enwreathing you like pure silk running across your skin...Only to soon tightly
smother you as you dream into death.
III.) MISERERE NOBIS:
When I listen to this my mind feels like it's falling...Falling like tears slowly rolling off of
the warm cheeks of a young girl.She feels hopeless and determined all at once as she faces a battle
with hard roads ahead.It's almost like you can hear her gasping as she struggles but can not catch
enough breath...Even with all of this she is still standing.Afflicted with misery at the edge of the
world.She curls her toes as she closes her eyes waiting in anticipation of her own demise.Rushing winds
rock her to a sway and you can almost hear the rustling of the tree leaves and the whisling of winds running
through the tall grass.She now opens her eyes and with a swift breath throws her body down.Tragically she did
not fall far enough.She now dies slowly in agony  as her lungs flood with blood  and her breathing becomes a
panicked wheeze...Death stands before her giving no aid nor a quick ending...But watches with a cruel, crude
grimace as her blood shot eyes bleed tears...This was what I envisioned when I let the sounds of this amazing
track drown the world around me and take me to alternate or perhaps past lives deep within the mind.If a song
or composition can do that...The artists responsible for it's creation have really accomplished something.
TRANCENDING IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD.IT IS NOT OFTEN THAT TWO BEINGS JOIN INTO
ONE SOLID ENTITY.THIS IS A LIMITED RELEASE.DON'T MISS IT:

8.5/10
