4 stars Maribor is a throbbing-post-nuclear noisy drone super project founded years ago by Stefano Gentile with the contribution of highly acclaimed artists from the Italian underground industrial movement (Maurizio Bianchi/M.B., Mauthausen Orchestra/Pierpaolo Zoppo, Nimh/Giuseppe Verticchio, Andrea Marutti and Gianluca Favaron).

De Immenso is their second offering. This time, the conceptual background seems to be openly related to the universal and philosophical hermeticism of Giordano Bruno, to his dangerous work under the pressure of the hegemonic religious dogma. This album offers to the listener a volcanic and sonorous arcane of bleak crashing noises delicately punctuated by eerie drones and proggy orientated embellishments. This musical procession opens with a dense and buzzing meditative piece covered by hypno-ish circular guitar motives and soft clouds of drones. The second track opens with peaceful repetitive guitar chords, some kind of dreamy tones rapidly followed by an avalanche of field recordings, intrusive black drones. The last minutes contains a dialogue between suspenseful-goth-somnanbulic guitars and rolling crashing noises. Track 3 is a creeped out ambient piece in the pure classy vein of the genre. The last tune is a deep-rumbling heart touching piece mainly built around the guitars and effects.

This album follows the path written by the previous Maribor effort but admits much more variations / solid interferencies between the ambient / noisy facets. A thundering-hauntingly bleak industrial musical adventure that can seduce fans of early demonic drones from Lustmord, Atrax Morgue, Sigilium S but also relaxing post-rockin airs from Jasper TX, Tim Hecker (...)
