Rated: *****
Chernobyl disaster has been one of the sad moments of our modern times. Many people died and it is unknown how many have been intoxicated or how many have contracted cancer years after that "accident". After a visit to the city of Prypec and to the places near the nuclear power plant of Chernobyl, Andrej Jozwik wrote the notes you can find in the booklet of JOB KARMA's TSCHERNOBYL. Words heavy like stones which paired to the photos taken into those locations give a different meaning to the sounds produced by the duo. Musically the CD succeeds into creating the right ambience which is in balance from industrial to ambient. The synth pad layers, along with industrial percussions, create eight particular movements where the vocal samples are able to paint a disturbing sensation of despair thank also to the melancholic melodies produced or to the experimental patchwork, where synth waves are coupled to noises and samples coming from the tv news. A really good release...
