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.

I slept on this album for far too long! After finally downloading it, I quickly realized what a beast of a recording it is. The album cover perfectly sets the scene for this Eastern infused dark ambient recording, which is becoming one of my favorite Cryo Chamber collaboration releases! I highly recommend this one!!

I've just finished listening all the trilogy in one take. It is amazing album and a great finalle of the story! It is very different dark ambient - it is dark, but also because of it's melodies and advanced technical sounds it does bring feeling of hope somehow. b-
