4 stars The definition of "Proscyneme" is: "Expression of Worship found on many ancient monuments".

This album signs a return of Senmuth to the industrial metal and even if contains the usual ethnic elements there's more distorted guitar than tablas.

The first track is the phonetic writing of "Implicit Memory". It's just an intro and is the only ethno-ambient track of the album. Less than two minutes and "Proscynemania" comes. This is a powerful metal track with strong guitars on which the only surviving ethnic element is a recurring "clean guitar" solo and a very short percussion interlude. A very good track.

"Astronot Kuno" is closer to Death Metal. a heavy distorted guitar drives the track. Even being a good guitarist Senmuth is not used to put a lot of guitar in foreground on his albums. This is an exception as it's probably the first Senmuth's album totally guitar based.

"Cosmos AZ-TEC3" has an ambient opening with guitar and piano. Melodic as only the metalists can be (think to things like Metallica's Nothing Else Matters), it later becomes more usual in Senmuth's terms. A melodic base backed by the industrial noise provided by the high volume sometimes clean and sometimes distorted guitar.

"Magnitude 32.0" opens with drums and two heavy guitars. Another good track for metal fans but with oriental moments and an unusual choice of keyboard's sounds that makes it suitable for fans of both prog-metal and progressive electronic.

"Crying in The Temple of Jupiter" is an excellent track: after a short intro of crowd noises it starts quite newage but when the guitar enters is a fantastic metal track. The percussion- ethnic interlude is not disturbing and when the guitar solo restarts it's quite symphonic, too. A great track.

"At Land is Myth" is less structured. The heavy guitar parts are good enough but it's far from the peak of the previous track. Nothing special.

"Cult Observatorium" is mainly guitar and drums. The guitar makes me think to Black Sabbath of the "Sabotage" period. Ozzy's voice would have sounded very well here.

"Nova Chronology Lie" Is something already heard. There's a very similar track on another of the many Senmuth's albums. They are so much that I can't say exactly which one, but the percussion are almost identical. After the intro it's more interesting and in the end it's one of the best tracks of the whole album.

"Sakura Not Died..." is the first part of a mini-suite, the second is "...It will bloom again". Regardless the incorrect syntax. It has different sections and some symphonic moments enhanced by short guitar riffs made of very long notes with a Gilmourish sustain while the distorted guitar in the background creates a powerful soundscape. The melody is influenced by the Far East instead of by the Middle East as usual. I don't like the ethnic interludes when they interrupt the heavy ambience, but in this case they are complete sections, not just interludes. I have the impression that a vocalist is present but it can be an effect as it appears together with the violin or whatever it is. The track progresses smoothly until the explosion at the beginning of the second half. On this track Valery Av demonstrates to have enhanced his composing skills and those two tracks are the things closest to the classic prog that he has ever released. Don't forget that this is fundamentally metal, but those tracks can be of interest also for people who is not familiar with experimental/post metal.

As all the about 100 albums released by Senmuth, also this is downloadable for free on his website.
