On their latest album the Norwegian duo pushes some of the hard hitting, mechanically textured aesthetics of their previous release “Fullstendig Brent” to the forefront. A dystopian commentary on the risks inherent to the antagonistic nature of humankind, and how the overwhelming and uncertain scope of Industry 4.0 - of progressively more powerful technology and strong AI - may end up amplifying those risks beyond human control. Given this conceptual framework, DØDSMASKIN have aimed to develop a sound palette that shifts between both droning and pulsating brutality that represents unstoppable forces in motion and bleak atmospheres that denote an age of growing futility and - ultimately - self-inflicted extinction. Mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri at Black Knoll Studio, NY.
CD Edition of 500 Copies in 4 panel Digipak. 5 Tracks. Running Time 40:42
I love doom jazz, noir, and Atrium Carceri.
The three together with Cities Last Broadcast AND God Body Disconnect is WOW.
And A Thousand Empty Rooms is, or I hope is, the soundtrack of my soul. control_001
If you haven't yet gone down the dark ambient late night bandcamp Cryo Chamber rabbit hole - you are totally missing out! This however is the one release from the label that I would consider a notch above all others, in terms of concept and execution. Pretty much flawless collaboration that sends you into an hour plus haze. Nice. bcb723
