Artist: Riverz End (@)
Title: Possible
Format: Download Only (MP3 only)
Label: Lagunamuch Records (@)
Rated: *****
A free download-only item available from the website of the Russian label Lagunamuch and even if the label warns the listener, not to try to understand the sense of this nickname, I am highly interested to know who stands behind this mysterious act. And regarding the nick-name: well, what’s wrong to name a band project after a title of the SKINNY PUPPY-album "Last Rites" (is that a fair interpretation, Mr. Daut?)? This project is a very well-done surprise – what do I say? – maybe the best free downloadable surprise since years! Cinematic and dark sounding Electronica in some way comparable to FLAGUE or ZENTRIERT INS ANTLITZ unites with a rhythmically outfit, which often draws relations to THE KLINIK – this marvelous soundtrack drives most of the latest Tympanik, Hands, Hymen/Ant-Zen – releases against the wall! Too bad, that this epic trip ends after only 35 minutes, but I’ve lately seldom heard anything else addictive. As for the highlights well-balanced through this available 9 tracks, there’s in the first instance to name the title track, since Possible is a pearl of an authentic Dark-Electro-tune with programming abilities very near to FIX8:SED8 or OBJECT. "Fresh Wound" or "Magenta Violence" impress with complex rhythm- and percussion-programming abilities by using multiple Hi-Q – constructions. Rather more scary and ominous sounding are tracks like "Huge Face" or "Other Dreams", which both concentrate to leave the listener breathless with its thrilling atmospheres. Last, but not least, the ultra-wide reverberating effects used on "To Forget World To Remember World" have something special, too. Well, what finally can go wrong, if also Athur Berent of ABSTRACT AVENUE is aboard by offering a decent cover art for this new Russian talent? Have I mentioned above, that this item is freely available? – this is a must-have download, get it!
