The Solemn Truth (ALRN006)

by JOHN 3:16

Son of God 04:28


The sound on this disc is dominated mainly by simple but thunderous mechanical beats and deep, droning synth lines -- this some seriously repetitive and hypnotic work. Over the course of five instrumental songs, big and simple beats form the rhythmic foundation over which the band's mysterious solo composer weaves cold but harmonious sheets of synth drone. It's a loud and effective form of minimalism with techno beats and dark-ambient keyboards, and while the tempos are a bit too slow for it to really qualify as dance music, it's certainly more beat-heavy than traditional dark ambient. While the songs are relatively simple and uncluttered, there's enough variation in the synth sounds to keep things flowly nicely, and their dark, icy sound combined with the heavy beats makes for highly compelling listening.
