Experimental/Post Metal definition



Experimental Progressive Metal

Experimental progressive metal is a sub-genre of progressive metal characterized by the incorporation of innovative, eclectic elements, large-scale experimentation and the use of non-standard and unconventional sounds, instruments, song structures, playing styles, and vocal techniques. Experimentation in the music is a major criteria to define the genre where artists often add unique elements to the overall sound, while progressive metal usually has more focus on traditional metal instrumentation and higher levels of technical complexity.

It's nearly impossible to pinpoint the exact origin of Experimental Progressive Metal since experimentation is common in all music genres. Still it is clear that experimentation in the progressive metal sub-genre has slowly but steadily grown in popularity ever since its humble beginnings in the early 1980s.

Just like any other style, Experimental Progressive Metal has a few defining moments that have changed the rules for its sub-genre for years to come. Two of such moments are the releases of the debut album by MR.BUNGLE of August 1991 and its iconic follow up "Disco Volante" of 1995. MR BUNGLE became notorious for their heavy sound and mid-song shifts of musical style. The band has later spawned an array of established avant-garde side projects such as FANT‘MAS, SECRET CHIEFS 3 and ESTRADASPHERE but also inspired new Experimental Metal acts to take the music scene to new heights.
Another crucial artist in the development of Experimental Progressive Metal was the leading Avant Metal band of the 80s, CELTIC FROST. Their eclectic mix of Thrash, Doom, Symphonic and Goth Metal created a dark theatrical mystique that became a major influence among the experimental Extreme Metal bands of the 90s such as MY DYING BRIDE, ULVER, ARCTURUS among others. These bands served as an important source of inspiration for the experimental movement within extreme metal.

The bands listed under Experimental Progressive Metal have all, in various degrees, shed their extreme heritage in favor of embracing influences of the eclectic style going from art rock and ethnic up to free-jazz and even modernist music.

Art Metal
Art metal is a direct continuation of progressive metal but with the longing to expand the themes and styles of music while maintaining the technical complexity of the sub-genre.
These bands are more artistic than their progressive metal peers and tend to experiment, to a certain extent, but not as openly as the bands of the eclectic and avant-garde metal styles. Art metal comes in many shapes and forms. The virtuosity and complete unpredictability of DEVIN TOWNSEND, OSI and TOOL always manages to draw attention of both fans of traditional metal as well as the progressive music audience, while bands like ANATHEMA, DEADSOUL TRIBE and GORDIAN KNOT attract many fans of groove and atmospheric music into their vibrant soundscapes. Other notable acts include GREEN CARNATION, DARK SUNS and ANTIMATTER.

Eclectic Metal
These bands often add unconventional elements to their metal sound, whether it's experiments with various new sounds and styles that are otherwise uncommon in metal or by blending many styles, with metal being the referential core. Whether it's the ethnic elements of ORPHANED LAND's music that combines Middle Eastern folklore with the more traditional progressive metal sound or a completely unique mix of atmospheric, almost ambient, elements fused with metal that can be found in the sound of THE GATHERING, eclectic metal artists will always certainly bring a host of different styles and ideas to the table. Experimental metal can be found in numerous forms while featuring notable acts like INDUKTI, IN THE WOODS... and MAUDLIN OF THE WELL.

Avant-garde Metal
This style is generally considered to be more extreme in both its arrangements but most importantly extremely complex and unpredictable song structures. Compositions have the ambition of trying to breach boundaries of music and generally have significant experimental approaches to metal music. Most of this music borders on the realms of pure avant-garde while still maintaining a solid foundation in metal with technical instrumental prowess. Notable acts include UNEXPECT, EPHEL DUATH and VIRUS.


Post Metal

Post metal arose following the subsequent emergence of numerous newer, grittier metal genres like sludge, stoner, doom, and drone in the late 80's and early 90's, as well as the budding post-rock scene that emerged in the early 90's in Europe and North America. The scene's origins can be heard in several distinctly like-minded, moderately experimental groups in the early 90's, ranging from the noisy grind of GODFLESH, the sludgy, melodic, sometimes punk-like riffs of the MELVINS, and the proggy time signatures and grungy riffing of TOOL or HELMET, to the textural work of DON CABALLERO and the more melodic moments of early BARK PSYCHOSIS.

Arguably the first true and definitive realizations of post-metal emerged in the mid 1990's. The most concrete example was NEUROSIS, who moved farther away from their crust-punk origins and into more atmospheric territories with releases like Souls at Zero and Through Silver in Blood, the latter album in particular being regarded as one of the most definitive releases in the genre even to this day for its revolutionary blend of dark, spanning atmosphere and massively heavy sludge, something that would later come to define the post-metal genre as a whole (indeed, post-metal is often called "atmospheric sludge" as well). It wouldn't be until the early 2000's, however, that the genre's capacity would be fully realized, with releases like ISIS's "Oceanic", CULT OF LUNA's "Salvation", and PELICAN's "Australasia" paving the way for a true scene to emerge, and post-metal has since become a widespread phenomenon that has captivated the attention of many adventurous listeners worldwide.

Post-metal's unique sound is often very long and extremely drawn-out, utilizing oft-repetitive and simple riffs and guitar texturing to create massive buildups and musical climaxes. At times very emotionally evocative, it can be equally soft and soothing as it can be massively dense and crushing. Vocals are used sparingly, if at all (instrumental post-metal is a popular genre, with groups like PELICAN and RUSSIAN CIRCLES even achieving some degree of mainstream credibility), and when they are, they're usually gruff and barked as opposed to growled or screamed, a signature trait of the genre's hardcore roots.

Variations of Post-metal

While it should be noted that many post-metal bands have their roots in sludge metal, there are many post-metal bands that are rooted in other genres of metal. While post-sludge was an almost uniquely American phenomenon, a number of European doom-influenced post-metal bands have risen to fame, namely groups like ANATHEMA, YEAR OF NO LIGHT and CALLISTO; their slow-churning riffs and depressing mood of doom metal fit very well into the post-metal formula. These groups later gave way to more western post-doom-metal projects like JESU, GIANT SQUID, and MINSK.

A number of post-metal bands are significantly influenced by hardcore and post-hardcore, crafting the melodic elements of modern hardcore into their own brands of textural and atmospheric post-metal. This is exemplified by groups like ROSETTA, THE OCEAN COLLECTIVE, CAVE IN, MOUTH OF THE ARCHITECT and BURST.

A subgenre that has emerged to a considerable degree in the last decade is an amalgamation of post-rock and black metal. Black metal has traditionally not been a stylistic influence on post-metal over the years, but bands like ALCEST, FEN, AGALLOCH and ALTAR OF PLAGUES have used the more atmospheric qualities of black metal and the tremolo riffing and incorporated it with a shoegaze-like affinity for heavy, dreamy sounds and guitar effects to create a unique and evocative subgenre that shares many visional and sonic characteristics of post-metal. While the explosion of bands exploring this style is a rather recent phenomenon, there are some instances of this occurring very early in the lifespan of the post-metal genre as a whole. ULVER's debut could be seen as possibly the first album to fall under this definition. For clarification's sake, these post-rock influenced bands are placed in the post-metal subsection of ProgArchives as opposed to the black metal subsection of Tech/Extreme because they eschew much of the harsh tonalities, minor modes, and shrieking vocals of black metal and add a melodic and emotional aspect that makes it much more accessible than their progressive black metal peers in the tech/extreme section.

Today, the most popular post-metal groups are much of the genre's godfathers like ISIS, NEUROSIS, PELICAN, and CULT OF LUNA, though a number of newer bands have risen to fame in metal and prog circles within the last 5 years like INTRONAUT, ROSETTA, and THE OCEAN COLLECTIVE.

Addicted (Devin Townsend Project)
Devin Townsend Experimental/Post Metal

Review by RainingStigmata

3 stars This album is the one that got me into Devin in the first place. There is really not a lot to it though. In fact, this would probably be his most accessible album to date.

Short songs, fun grooves and a general feeling he is paying out popular music, Devin and Anneke nevertheless take us on a journey of great musicianship and vocal skill. Though I wouldn't necessarily call any song here "prog" and hence the rating, it is still a great release from the modern master.

Highlights include the title track, Bend It Like Bender, Hyperdrive and In-Ah. In usual Devin Townsend vein, listen to the music, vocal and composition ability, stay for the cheesey smiles and fun that this album will no doubt bring.

3 and a half stars, rounded down due to the "prog" parameter.

The Retinal Circus
Devin Townsend Experimental/Post Metal

Review by RainingStigmata

4 stars Devin Townsend takes us for a ride through his back catalogue (as of 2013), including his Ocean Machine and Strapping Young Lad days through loosely connected songs all following a theme of togetherness.

There is so much good on this live release. Every song flows into the other seamlessly, or at least with a loose segue from Steve Vai, the narrator of the evening. In typical Dev style he turns up the cheese just enough to make you happy to be alive and experience his music, while still hitting you hard with his guitar playing and headbanging composition ability.

The only downside I can think of is just how long it goes for. While 2 hours is the average length of a movie (said only to convey the fact this tells a story) or a live performance, there is a lot to digest and while I love listening to parts of this at a time, listening at full pelt can get a little tiresome.

Absolute highlights for me are Effervescent!/True North, Planet Smasher through to Addicted! and Hyperdrive through to Bend It Like Bender.

4 stars out of 5. Recommended for those needing a bit of perking up or already happy while not losing that metal feel.

Ziltoid the Omniscient
Devin Townsend Experimental/Post Metal

Review by RainingStigmata

4 stars Serious music without taking itself seriously. This album is fun. That is all that can be said.

I first came across Devin Townsend with his "Addicted" album and fell in love completely not only with Anneke, but the music and words from this man.

So when my friend gave me this album to listen to, I was expecting great things, which after the first few listens I just didn't get.

Giant wall of sound, a drum machine that sounded out of control and .. yuck is that growling??

The good thing is as with many progressive metal albums I have listened to over the years the intricacies begin to uncover themselves to allow you to understand the full story of the album. Once you make sense of the drums, the words and the pictures painted with the music, you end up with an album that is just so kick-butt awesome that my lexicon and love for coffee has been forever changed. Phooey! Yeeeeees! decaf, non-fat, no-whip, sugar-free, vanilla-flavored latte, FETID!"

The highlight songs on this album are By Your Command, Solar Winds, Hyperdrive, Planet Smasher and Colour Your World. All are rich in riffage, sheer guitar wankery and throughout it all, telling a story of insecurity and discovering your place in the universe.

4 and a half stars out of 5, rounded down because of Deus ex Machina. Recommended to those who are fans of great metal musicianship.

Revisionist
Sannhet Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Guldbamsen
Special Collaborator Retired Admin

3 stars Old meets old...and a bass to die for

Sannhet means truth or truthfulness in both Swedish and Norwegian. I guess these guys needed something with a Scandinavian flavour; after all the black metal they occasionally dip their toes in stems from the far north. As it happens I too come from Scandinavia. I eat snow and dill in equal quantities and often use my days watching trees lose their foliage and wither away in the sweeping winds. That's Scandinavia for ya....at least during the colder months. To any black metal fan that's about all Scandinavia is. Well we do get summers up here - sunshine, bikinis, badly produced pop music and big bellied German tourists all frequent our lands. Sannhet though seems enamoured with the music of frostbites and chess coloured war-paint. On 'Revisionist' all of this gets funnelled into the vast open country of America and effectively moves away from the shrieking aesthetics of say early Ulver or Darkthrone.

Nah Sannhet seems to have sucked up a fair few sonic fingerprints from the American countryside, be that from the towering brutes of Isis or the Texan purveyors of post rock Explosions in the Sky. Bombastic bone-crunchingly heavy riffs with hints of a guttural force normally found in death metal, Sannhet employs some of the same geriatrics I've heard through the last couple of decades - starting out with Neurosis' genesis wonder 'Souls at Zero'. Now music doesn't always have to be cutting edge for me to enjoy it. On the contrary, I often find deliberately progressive music unnecessarily contrived. The one problem with this album though remains it's inability to shake it's style. Post rock or indeed post metal has been oversaturated with Godspeed crescendos and Neurosian build-ups - almost to the point of nausea. Even when these usual suspect are blended into a hefty mix of contemporary electronics and what to these ears genuinely sound like early 1980s post punk, I still mostly hear a hundred other bands who've done this thing before...and slightly better.

Hang on a minute....why does this album then continue to travel back into my stereo? I guess it's the Joy Division touch. -Lunging through in the bass playing - like an insisting poodle screwing your shin. The first couple of times I listened to 'Revisionist' it reminded of something I couldn't quite put my finger on. It continued to do so until one day after my morning juice sťance. I popped on 'Unknown Pleasures' as I was walking out to the mighty water-closet where shampoo and toothpaste reside peacefully amongst each other - and then by the flick of the switch during 'Day of the Lords' and your's truly sitting comfortably on the can, I suddenly remembered that elusive bass from Sannhet. 'Eureka' I cried with happy tears in my eyes and a lovely smirk on my face that only really materialises during poops of heaven.

What does this album sound like then? What if Joy Division were American and had formed 20 years later with the intent of giving Godspeed, Isis and Neurosis a run for their money? You're close buddy - just cut out the dangerous frailty of one Ian Curtis and you're halfway there. Recommended to people with green shoes.

Yavu Experimental/Post Metal

Review by progadicto

— First review of this album —
4 stars There is a vast number of bands from Northern Chile making interesting acts and Yavķ is one of them.

Formed 'round 2010, Yavķ is a regular number in many stages for many reasons, most of them stamped in their first release: risky and successful mixes of heavy metal and post-rock melacholic atmospheres which reminds some Irepress or Animals As Leaders acts, and raw but metaphoric lyrics talking about the madness of this actual brave new world. This mixture of different and opposite textures reaches some fine and enriched songs such as "La Histeria del Mundo", "Mťdula" and "Elixir", maybe the three strongest pieces of this debut album.

Fans of post-metal will find in this album many great material to listen perhaps fans of more melodic post-rock a la Mogwai will find some interesting and atmospheric sections in this unusual but interesting experiment with lots of inffluences but with an own and particular sound...

Null
Intronaut Experimental/Post Metal

Review by siLLy puPPy
Collaborator PSIKE Team

3 stars Originally this came out as their first demo titled "NULL - Demonstration Extended Play Compact Disc" that was recorded and released in 2005, but the band managed to impress the ears of the good folks at Goodfellow Records and this was repackaged, given a real album cover and released simply as NULL which became their very first release as an EP. The demo only had four tracks but an additional fifth track "Burning These Days" was included on the EP.

NULL shows just how much INTRONAUT have changed over the course of a decade, however much of their progressive take on the world of sludge metal is quite in tact on this first output. NULL reminds me a lot of the earliest Mastodon releases where their music is much more aggressive and fueled with adrenaline with fewer slower jazzy passages slipped into the mix but not totally devoid thereof either. For the most part Sacha Dunable's vocals are growly and remind me a lot of Luc Lemay from Gorguts at this stage with very, very little clean vocals to be heard. The band are already adept at playing extremely complex riffs that form their signature melodic dissonance as Leon Del Muerte and Dunable deliver highly distorted and aggressive guitar riffs backed up by equally hardcore bass techniques of Joe Lester. Danny Walker has mastered the sludge metal drum sound but on this one he plays more aggressively and all the tracks are of a much higher tempo than much of the albums that follow. The time sigs and progressiveness is already in full play.

If you're already an INTRONAUT fan don't miss this debut EP for it's as entertaining as any of the lot but it is true that the intricacies and complex song structures that they would really develop on "Prehistorians" are not quite so characteristic of their sound at this stage. This is a band that wants to blow the roof off the house pumping out fast and furious sludge metal without much of the atmospheric touches that they successfully weave into their overall trademark brand of sludge. While i wouldn't call this their most essential offering i do find it one that i can't live without and a highly enjoyable form of sonic torturous eardrum bombardment.

3.5 rounded down

The Direction of Last Things
Intronaut Experimental/Post Metal

Review by siLLy puPPy
Collaborator PSIKE Team

5 stars Since their debut on the progressive metal scene in 2006 with "Void," INTRONAUT have only upped their game incrementally ever since pumping out one amazing album after another pleasing us progressive rock fiends who haven't outgrown the extreme metal that sustains us. To the chagrin of some of us when an extreme metal band gets too soft, which was the case on "Habitial Levitations" where vocalist Sacha Dunable eschewed the growly extreme madness that makes extreme metal, well? extreme, is usually a sign that a band is on its way on the downside. Just something about shouted, growly and guttural vocals on top of highly distorted and anarchic sounding instrumentation just gives it that extra oomph.

Fears were being raised of going "Opeth" on that album that perhaps the band was toning things down a bit. Perhaps members were having babies, perhaps knitting sweaters for their wives, taking up home brewing or simply joining local cricket clubs. Well any such fears have been erased on their 2015 release THE DIRECTION OF LAST THINGS. Right from the very first glance of blackened birds swirling into the void reminds us of past glories that bring their magnum opus "Prehistoricisms" immediately to mind. The band was back to prove that they have indeed carved out their own brand of progressive atmospheric sludge metal and with this latest release they certainly have done so.

On THE DIRECTION OF LAST THINGS the band really takes all the best aspects of the past and borrows liberally from some of their influences and inserting them into their heavy distorted progressive madness that manages to combine totally new sonicscapes to escape within. Between the odd time signatures of the guitars of Dave Timnick and Sacha Dunable as well as the jazz-infused drumming talents of Danny Walker interacting on seemingly different worlds but threading it all together and the fretless bass maestrohood of Joe Lester, INTRONAUT simply has hit upon a sound and style all their own and with this latest release they only cement that sentiment into an already earned status placing them in the leagues of the influences heard on this album including the likes of Messhugah, Mastodon, Alice In Chains, Oceansize, Tool, Between The Buried And Me and beyond. However this band is certainly more than the sum of their influences thrown into a blender and randomly spewed out.

The beauty of INTRONAUT is how well they can cut and past and perfectly blend a furious storm of dissonance with various forms of abstract melodic development. They really know how to take the model of the structure of verse / chorus / verse / bridge / chorus thing and magnify that principle and into a much more complex mathematical equation, so while they are clearly in experimental mode they pay attention to keeping some sort of mental tracking system that takes patterns and repeats ideas enough as not to lose one's bearings, however this is indeed complex music and an acquired taste that demands multiple listens to fully comprehend.

What really strikes me more than anything about this album is how well the songs are constructed. They really take the listener on an interesting ride keeping all the past INTRONAUT styles and instrumentation in tact but utilizing an abundance of riffing, vocal styles, pulverizing drumming and atmospheres just dripping in aggression, melancholy and extra-dimensional prowess. The production is also extraordinary as every little sound is animated and allowed to fulfill its potential. It always amazes me at some of the negative reviews and ratings that go with the instant gratification process that music has in general garnered over the decades. This album is one that does not bring that happy joy joy feel upon first listen although it is not without its hooks and addictive qualities, rather it is one of those albums that ratchets up the listener's senses upon repeated listening. I'm finding this to be so much more satisfying upon repeated bombardments of my senses! While i understand this is truly a progressive metal band in the truest sense of the meaning, i don't find superficial exposure to be adequate in the eternal art of "getting it". This is music that took years to put together. Music that is to be worked for is some of the most satisfying music i have found and this definitely falls into that camp for even as an INTRONAUT fan i've had to pay special attention to the details.

This is highly recommended for all the obvious sludge metal freaks who like Isis, Mastodon, Baroness, Neurosis and beyond but there are many progressive aspects i am hearing that bring Enslaved, Gorguts, Alice In Chains, Tool and even Meshuggah to mind. Well worth the price of admission and one that only gets better the more you listen to it, at least that has been the case for me. Perhaps not quite as perfect as "Prehistoricisms" but definitely a close second in their discography for me and one that i am convinced will only garner more attention over the time as these days we are inundated with so much music that it's impossible to digest it all. What a wonderful problem to have!

4.5 but rounded UP!

Sleepy Buildings - A Semi Acoustic Evening
The Gathering Experimental/Post Metal

Review by memowakeman
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars I think I've been in love with The Gathering for the last three years, and now I can say it is one of those bands I regret I never see in concert, pity me. But well, every time I listen to them I am fed with emotions, memories and stories, something not so many bands produces on me. We all know that Anneke's years made this band bigger and unforgettable, she is without a doubt THE Gathering's voice (though I LOVE Silje), and every single record they released with her voice is a delight.

This live album is different, because it has a lot of acoustic passages and most of the songs (if not all) had new arrangements, I mean, they were re-worked songs for this special semi-acoustic evening. So the band surprised the audience and the album's listeners because it features great iconic and not that iconic songs from their repertoire with a softer sound that was magnificently complemented by Anneke's beautiful, powerful and emotional voice.

Of course when someone aims to listen to The Gathering, it is expected to find those metal roots and those experimental moments they created with their 90s albums, which is why listening to this live album might be a double- edged knife, because you either might feel that lack of power, or you might find the magic that surrounded this show. I love the band and I stay with the magic, but I cannot deny this is not my favorite live release.

The night and the concert were beautiful, the music makes you travel with those wonderful guitars and keyboards, but without a doubt the main magic lies on Van Giersbergen's vocals and charisma. The band seemed to be connected so everything flows naturally, so this is without a doubt a great concert, a nice experiment that a fan like me appreciates, but honestly I would not use this as an introductory album, I would not recommend it unless I know the person already knows and likes The Gathering.

My favorite moments are: "Amity", "Red is a Slow Color", "Eleanor" and of course, the mighty "Travel", a song that never fails. My final grade will be 3 stars.

Enjoy it!

As Grey As They Said
Carontte Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Insin

5 stars As Grey as They Said is an obscure gem that demonstrates all of the best qualities of post-rock and post-metal, from a band that unfortunately does not seem to have been very active lately or have much other material. Bouncing effortlessly between extremes of clean, light post-rock, into heaviness in both a traditional musical sense and in mood, the movement along the entire spectrum of post-rock/metal is crucial to the value of this album, and to top it off Carontte's songwriting is strong as well.

The balance of the extremes in mood and the moderation between them gives AGATS variety and depth that lends it more uniqueness and holds the concentration. The two short songs rely on either one or the other in terms of lightness/heaviness, and the amount of sounds that Carontte is able to pull from helps keep their more frequent longer epics more interesting and dynamic. Right from the opening chord of Grey, they immediately create a bleak, almost post-apocalyptic atmosphere favorited by bands like Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Altar of Plagues, a feeling that Carontte often revisits throughout AGATS. Meanwhile on songs From Red Horizons and Weak, they pull largely from the bright, clean, and uplifting post-rock of Explosions in the Sky. Carontte's songwriting is also stronger than many other bands of their ilk. Some groups write songs of length but don't know how to keep the listener's attention (or gain it in the first place), but this is not a problem with Carontte. Of the seven songs on AGATS, five of them pass the eight minute mark, and the band is able to keep them fairly interesting, using their sound that encompasses the entire spectrum of post-rock/metal, to their advantage as there is enough variety within it to allow for dynamics. The vocals, inconsistent in their style and presence, still do help AGATS pop out more, and are wont to grab the attention, just like the first chord of Grey. The long songs rely more on numerous small peaks throughout their runtimes rather than one dramatic finish.

AGATS does not truly progress the post-rock and metal genres but instead summarizes and fuses their best elements, with the help of engaging songwriting. The exploration of the full spectrum of heaviness and its upbeat to depressing moods makes this woefully underrated and obscure album shine. If you can handle some harsh vocals and you're searching for more post-rock/metal, do yourself a favor and listen to this. It isn't quite perfect and I am rounding up to five stars, but AGATS definitely deserves more attention.

Inside The Bent
Senmuth Experimental/Post Metal

Review by octopus-4
Special Collaborator RIO/Avant/Zeuhl Team

3 stars 40 miles from Giza there's a complex of pyramids, but they are different and more ancient than those well known in Giza. The "Great beginning of Dahshur" is this: the start of the Egyptian greatness. This is why this unusually melodic tune starts at low volume to grow sowly. It represents a beginning. The mood changes suddenly with the second track. The sound of percussion like metal hammers (I think it's a Sistrum) give the idea of slaves working in the building of the Snefru Pyramid, the first with the known shape. No more big stairs. Just a bit more than one minute.

This travel through the Egyptian history proceeds entering the buildings of the ancient kingdom which started around the 2700 BC. Quite old, isn't it? The track starts with low volume sounds, like a sort of wind. The listener can imagine an archeologist entering a building for the first time. It's an electronic track, we could call it a drone, but the sound of a hammer gives it a dark atmosphere, sounding like a deadly bell. The track fades into "Descending Passageway", just to remain in the shoes of the acheologist. Also in this case there's no track of melody: just percussion and drone keyboard. The continuous sound in the background, is likely the Senmuth's 7 string electric guitar which after 1.30 minutes raises a melody, but without loosing the atmosphere created previously. A good track with changes in tonality not as disconnected as sometimes happens with this artist.

"Antechamber" brings us back to the darkness. Hammers again, over a windy background. Percussion are added to the hammer and the track is transformed in a sort of percussion solo giving the idea of a tribal rite. After 4 minutes the percussion stops leaving only the windy dark background.

It's clear that now we are descending into a tomb. We enter "Chamber I". Still driven by the percussion with almost nothing else than a background of guitar end keys, with the guitar playing long bass distorted notes. Listening carefully there's also some melody hidden behind the guitar. The key to this track is concentrate on that melody letting the percussion hypnotize you until, after 3;30 minutes, this long track intro is done. SInce now on this track which scores 8:40 minutes alternates different moments, all of them dark.

A "Connecting tunnel" made of a single chord arrives. All those "chapters" could be considered a single long suite as there's no much variance. The "Portcullis" is a sort of gate, door. To open it our archeologist has to try two different configurations. The first has chords and melody introducing another piece of percussion driven track which later calms down and goes back to a melodic section which lasts until the end. The Second configuration opens something. It's a mixture of ethnic music and electronic, quite usual for him.

Finally inside. The Corridor of Dead dust...how would you imagine the music here? I think the intro couldn't have been different. Then it proceeds more structured. "Nebmaat" is a synonym of Snefru. So the pyramid's owner. In his sepolcral room we think to have finally reached the core of it all, but there's some more: the second great chamber. This is a track that can live standalone, while still being part of this sort of suite.

Now our archeologist has seen everything. It's time to reconsider this descent. In "Atmosphere of life and death" the hammer is back. Again it's drone sounds and the hammer plus some tapes here and there and accents from a heavily distorted guitar. A 13 minutes track that could have been recorded by Phrozenlight, if it wasn't for the guitar which plays some notes which becom a sort of repetitive melody. Quite Berlin school.

The closer doesn't add much to the album. It's so silent that I can say that it doesn't add anything. But its title "The Stone Dust of the Millennium" says all.

In brief, it's an album which requires its moment and the wish of getting lost in its mood.

Senmuth says:

"The album was written after visit the Bent Pyramid of Dahshur by the "ISIDA Project" expedition in 2012"

It explains all.
