Project Pitchfork – Black (CD Album – Trisol)Posted on 24/02/13
Content: The new album by Project Pitchfork as been presented as giving the listeners, and especially their fans, an answer to the questions that were asked on their previous full length “Quantum Machanics”: ‘What follows when you leave space behind? When you move into worlds beyond time and space?’
The answer for a part appears in the title of the album. “Black” probably isn’t the original title for an album, but Peter Spilles is once more using poetry and musical refinement as the main weapons behind his new creation. Project Pitchfork no longer can really surprise or they maybe have to compose a kind of soundtrack (like the last FLA-album) or an album filled with cover versions (like the last Clan Of Xymox-album) or maybe a kind of unplugged/acoustic release (like the last Diary Of Dreams-album). But “Black” simply sounds like a new exploration of a music style ‘Pitchfork’ has now been walking on since 1991 and the “Dhyani”-album.
“Black” sounds black, but has nothing in common with the hell-electro bands. It’s a dark kind of electronics mixing good-old new-wave elements and a kind of powerful electro-rock style featuring the typical timbre of voice of frontman Spilles. The production remains a real reference and a new subtle offspring between carrying melody lines, bombastic pounding rhythms and detailed electro sequences and subtle icy bleeps.
The album is alternating heavier and pure melancholic, quieter songs. The best cuts still are the most powerful ones and I here want to express a special mention for “Enchanted Dots Of Light” featuring an amazing –and not that typical Project Pitchfork bass line. Peter Spilles again surpasses himself with genius writing and elaboration in sound. “Black Sanctuary” definitely is an impressive song in the genre. The work of “Black” is a remarkable artistic outburst of an artist in total communion with his equipment and his creativity. He created a fantastic work where multiple layers of synths and other poignant bass lines came together in a total apotheosis.
Conclusion: Project Pitchfork is no longer confirming their strong potential and genius writing of electronic music. “Black” simply is the illustration of a living legend of electronics!
Best songs: “Pitch-Black”, “Enchanted Dots Of Light”, “Rain”, “The Circus”, “Black Sanctuary”.
