Industrial Music CDs at Storming The Base

Genre/Influences: Dark-ambient, cinematographic.

Content: Martin Bowes can look back on an impressive discography with experience in so many different genres and exorcizing multiple musical ideas. For more than 30 years now, this electro pioneer still finds the creativity to release new album and challenges. “Invocation” is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most noticeable releases in the musician’s career as he originally composed this music for the horror film "G.H.O.S.T" from U.S. company Mutantville Productions.

Martin Bowes got the help of his wife Kerri to compose this 9-piece masterpiece. You can hear that Martin Bowes is not that typical dark-ambient composer (referring here to projects like Raison D’Être, Bad Sector etc), but “Invocation” clearly sounds as a brilliant opus in the genre. The compositions are extremely well-crafted and elaborate. The multiple piano arrangements evoke some famous soundtracks of ‘standards’ in the horror genre. Black & white movies about horror houses and other Poltergeist phenomena immediately come to mind. As Attrition, he composed a typical ‘haunted house’-style, which I think perfectly matches with the title of the movie. The booklet of this release features this good-old black & white atmosphere of ghosts.

The composition progressively builds up. I don’t know if it has been intentional or not, but I like the progression leading us to an amazing apotheosis. Martin and Kerri Bowes perfectly know how to create an imaginary horror feeling by the simple strength of their composition. Dark and tormented atmospheres come down filling the poor mortals with fright and sending them into a cold sweat.

“Invocation” sounds like the incantation of abandoned spirits. The cold blasts of sounds symbolize the breath of the afterlife. “Invocation” takes us away on a dangerous trip throughout the mysteries of metaphysics.

Conclusion: I can imagine this is the kind of composition and concept a lot of musicians can only dream to accomplish. Martin Bowes did it because of his talent and his passion for music and that’s absolutely noticeable when you’re listening to this masterpiece!

Best songs: “VII”, “VIII”, “IX”.

Rate: (DP:8/9)DP.
