Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Third release by US-based artist Rich Casey here, and an aptly named album it is.

Dark, atmospheric explorations is the name of the game here. Symphonic layers with a focus on mood exploration in mostly slow paced compositions is the main feature throughout, more often than not setting up multiple layered pompous sonic tapestries with one dominating and one or two additional underscoring melodic layers.

Bass and drums provide rhythms, acoustic and electric guitars are added sparingly; the latter mostly in the form of atmospheric guitar soloing.

Nothing really complex on this production though; but fans of symphonic rock inspired by Genesis of old, and in particular those enjoying music in this style at the most lush and mellow, may find this one intriguing. Especially if dark, melancholic moods are of general interest.
