5 stars Like all 'Voice of Eye' recordings, this sounds like an alternative, far scarier soundtrack to films such as 'Eraserhead' and 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'. Real dark ambience with a skill that very few can match - leaving the likes of 'Lustmord' standing scratching his head, wondering why he ever bothered in the first place.

'Transmigration' is a very moody and brooding recording where at times sounds like the creepier parts of '2001 Space Odyssey''.

No synthesisers, samplers or sequencers are used throughout 'Transmigration' which is hard to believe when you hear what's going on. The sounds are almost impossible to describe- there's no bass or guitar used. It's ominous, dark and oppressive, this is the type of album you really should listen to late at night, particularly on Halloween if you want to get annoying kids away from your door.

I bought this in '95 when it was first released and still play it every 4 months or so due to it's realistic dirty, darkness. There's a whole lot going on during it's lengthy duration - where undescribable instruments are stretched and pulled to such an extent that they're no longer recognised. They morph into a malevolent maelstrom of evil sounding chords - only to get washed away occasionally into fragmented female vocals which are so effected you couldn't even tell they were human.

A very unusual and highly original album from a practically unknown band. It should appeal to fans of the dark side of Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze. I have no reservation in giving a 5 star reward.

Dobermensch | 5/5 |
