Industrial Music CDs at Storming The Base

Genre/Influences: Dark-ambient & industrial.

Content: Two of the most famous and active dark-ambient musicians join forces again for a new release of Bocksholm. This Swedish duo is quite confusing for the name of both members, which is identical. Peter Andersson & Peter Andersson aka Raison D’Être and Deutsch Nepal are back on track with a new piece of poignant ambient music.

Well the songs aren’t all that new as 2 of the songs were previously released on compilations while the other tracks left were written in between 2008 and 2012. The very unique Raison d’Être touch is quite noticeable when you’ll discover the dark and oppressive sound atmospheres, which are sometimes achieved by some chants and a few ritual elements. The Deutsch Nepal-touch comes through on the pure industrial noises, which are quite impressive. The mix of both musical brains sometimes moves on the edge of experimental, but mainly remains in the dark-ambient fields. “Bx, Ribbing & Burén” is a fully accomplished piece featuring the genius of both Anderssons. It’s a heavy sound production empowered by drones and icy, chilling vibes with a kind of industrial-ritual climax. This is the kind of track made by the brain of genius composers in the genre.

But this album has much more to offer than one amazing piece. The opening tracks are perfectly assimilating the dark-ambient style and harder industrial components. One of the most experimental and yet fascinating pieces as well is “Forging Hammers”, which is just one more noticeable track. “Sulphur” leads the album to its end in a quite ritual and passionate style dominated by a kind of Tibetan horn.

Conclusion: Bocksholm has been never the most recognized project from Andersson and Andersson, but it remains a very unique collaboration. This album is a must have that will remind you of the good-old days of the Cold Meat Industry roster (which has never released any single production of this project).

Best songs: “Bx, Ribbing & Burén”, “Bögamord”, “Forging Hammers”, “The Phantomghost”.

Rate: (DP:8)DP.
