Genre/Influences: Dark-ambient,

Background/Info: “Season” resulted from the common efforts between Chris F. aka Ajna and David Bengtsson aka Dödsapparaten. This meeting between an American- and a Swedish project gave birth to seven tracks, which have been dedicated to the loss of a close friend. 

Content: I’m more familiar with the work of Ajna, which you can partly recognize in the creation of icy sound atmospheres. “Season” reveals to be a travel throughout darkness featuring long, monotonous sound waves alternated with little noises. You sometimes get the impression of walking through a stormy sonic creation symbolizing a lost world. The darkness of the work is also reflected in the title of the tracks: “Destruction”, “Rot”, “Malaise”, “Anguish”. 

+ + + : This album has something intimate and even inhibited. It however has a strong visual appeal giving you the impression to walk in solitude throughout a desperate landscape. There’s an unassuming aspect in this work, which also makes it fascinating.

– – – : This album is alluring, but it also feels like there’s more potential in it than what came out. That’s maybe a good reason to consider another album.

Conclusion: “Season” is not what I would consider a ‘must have’-album, but it reveals a real potential, which I hope will inspire both artists to renew the experience of working together.

Best songs: “Season V: Amnesia”, “Season IV: Malaise”.

Rate: (7).
