Artist: THE ZERO PROJECT (@)
Title: Meta Visions
Format: CD
Label: self-released
Distributor: CDBaby
Rated: *****
Hailing from San Diego, CA, this is the musically output of Jeff Wiederkehr, who stands behind THE ZERO PROJECT. "Meta Visions" is his self-released 8-track debut EP and provides Electro/Industrial music which takes some loans out of Ambient and IDM-related styles. Not easy to categorize, because Jeff tries hard to keep his stuff diverse and free of cliches – this isn’t your usual Electro/Industrial listening routine. It is a generally richly arranged kind of music filled with remarkable layers and textures and Jeff seems to work hard to point out the details. Instrumentally based, at times supported with some voice samples ("Asleep At The Wheel"), he also doesn’t mind to integrate some guitar riffs ("Hope From Oblivion", "A Visitation") in his electronic sound. Favorites are both catchy, but still dark sounding pieces "Ascension Hive-Mind" and especially "The Stalker", which features some strange metallic percussion elements. If you like to hear something diverse produced electronic-based music, try this one, it brings an enjoyable listening. To make the good aspects perfect, please note that fine cover art, while the CD comes in a beautiful digi-pack. Available from CDBaby.

Artist: SKINK
Title: Skink
Format: CD
Label: MoMT (@)
Rated: *****
Being balanced between i.d.m./ambient with light melodies and dark ambient with drones, the latest Skink (personal project of Paul Mulholland) album is capable to entertain you for fifty minutes, creating a web of sounds that goes from minimal (but rich of rhythm) to melodic solutions good for soundtracks (see the short opening "Nothing", the following and really good "You know that place well" and "Autopsy"). Sometimes some tracks are too minimal for my taste but they are working well at creating a good atmosphere. Mastered by John Sellekaers (Xingu Hill and Dead Hollywood Stars) at his Metarc studios Skink album is a download only album released by MoMT records. Pre-listen it at Tunetribe, I-tunes, Napster or try your preferred website of digital music.

Artist: ION
Title: MADRE PROTEGENOS
Format: CD
Label: equilibrium music (@)
Distributor: audioglobe
Rated: *****
Mr Duncan Patterson is a really good writer and is famous for his participations in Antimatter and of course, Anathema ,but we are not talking now about doom metal music.Sure this album can be classified under Ethereal / World Music scene.ION is his new project, here create soundscapes and the introspective ambiance with melancholic shade, a bridge between Mediterranean sound and Irish-folk.Each song is slow and sad but really beautiful , full of poesy. The album's unique diversity is equally produced by several female singers who contributed to the album.

Title: La maquina de Dios
Format: CD
Label: BLACK RAIN (@)
Distributor: audioglobe
Rated: *****
LAMIA became famous for their album "Dark Angel"and Remix EP "Carnival Of Lust".I never been a great fan of this band coming from Argentina, their mix of EBM and medieval music looked me not very original , but this new album surprised me a lot. This time, the music is a perfect mixture of elements of modern electronic and music from the Middle Ages, gorgeous voices, ancient emotions and fantasies born from the medieval melodies creating a wonderful atmosphere.Highly recommended.

Artist: Reliquary (@)
Title: Winter World
Format: CD
Label: Black Rain (@)
Distributor: audioglobe
Rated: *****
"Winter World" is the debut by Reliquary, a good band located in Phoenix AZ ,They mix elements of classical, goth rock, and darkwave .Reliquary has opened for the likes of Faith and the Muse, Bella Morte, The Last Dance and The Crüxshadows and sure they took some influences but the sound is very personal and well composed. The lead vocalist Kara has warm and inviting great soprano voice there are a lots of synths, guitar, and violins and every song on the cd is beautifully that will satisfy fans of the genre.
