3 stars Promises for the future.

Oscillotron's aka Christoffer Johnasson and David Johansson, 2012 "Eclipse", is full of surprises. Some of them quiet relevant and unique, others not that unique and less memorable.

This album explores many moods and consequently new means of expression for the same. In these explorations it moves along obscure (not raw) electronic experimentations, highly dramatic compositional structures ala EL&P (or Bartok to be fair), the inevitable splashes of TD's idiom, and the so in vogue "dark" Ambient and Drone stylings.

Composition wise this duo has a lot to offer and it shows, but also more releases to purify all their influences and turn them their own.

Anyway for a first release and being inducted into this PA's Prog Electronic section with that single effort is quiet a burden, but if the winds high fly I could think these musicians will eventually release something beyond mere good.

For now ***3.5 "promIsing band, enjoyable album" PA stars.
