2 stars Slow moving astral-sound textures and serene artic electronic atmospheres are usual musical specialities of this Belgian project. In their relatively recent release Spore, Vidna Obmana were more intrigued by weird and bleak sonic ambiences but without turning dark ambient. It's a balance between cosmic-synth grooves (that can ravish fans of early Schulze or Von Deyen) and abrasive noisy distortion, highly dissonant frequencies. The Humanity underneath features doom-like bass guitars, spectral flute lines and abstract electronic atmospheres closed to what we can listen to in their early efforts. Skin Trip is much more a technoid-pulsating new agey trip with cold beats that sound too much artificial and clinical for my ears. Duality of Passion is in the same mood, very abstract heartless vibes with quasi sci-fi scientific orientations. Not so bad but ennoying and endlessly cold. Beginners should start first with the triology.
