4 stars Weirdly minimal dark ambient in the mood of Biosphere, Robert Henke and Omit (all included in the archives to represent the genre). "Purifying Fire" is a collection of rare tracks and unreleased stuffs from the German. The general atmosphere is confounding, absolutely doomy and "stoned". Entirely non-rhythmic "hypnotic" electronic drones. Ghostly and creepy microcosmic textures, emerging from the "chaos". "Strange Attractor" starts with echoing "industrial" abstractions, completely "claustrophobic" and oppressive. "Deep calls to Deep" reveals obsessive, physical, massive droning spheres, turning endlessly into a world of imaginative superposed sounds. "Deep Calls To Dub" is closed to "cosmic- psychedelica" emanations. It sounds trippy, cavernous and demonic (including almost funeral choir like imitations at the end). Mystical, experimental electronic darkness. It will ravish fans of 70's Berlin Underground and most recent bands coming from the ambient school.
