Alone In The Hollow Garden & Nam-Khar – Antariksha (Album – Winter Light)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Tribal, Ritual, Dark-Ambient, Industrial.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Alone In The Hollow Garden & Nam-Khar renewed their collaboration with this album released at the end of 2023 and featuring five tracks.

Content: We’re visiting an elaborated dark sound universe bringing different but related genres together. This is a sonic offspring between Tribal, Ritual and Dark-Ambient with extra Industrial percussion on top.

+ + + : I like the work for its diversity but still delicacy in the writing process. Both artists have used different authentic instruments injecting a true spirit to their work. They create a ghost-like atmosphere which is reinforced by tribal elements like a few chants but especially the rhythmic has an hypnotic sensation.

– – – : I regret that there are no more chants, except for the last cut featured.

Conclusion: Alone In The Hollow Garden & Nam-Khar are much more than collaborative artists; there’s a true chemistry between both resulting in a great work.

Best songs: “Agni”, “Jala”, “Nakshatra”.

Rate: 8.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
