Genre/Influences: Dark-ambient, industrial.
Content: The sound takes off a rather industrial way while ambient influences rapidly join in. Spoken samples add a spooky touch . You clearly hear the multiple field recordings, which are more noticeable by using headphones. From stormy sonic waves to sweeping noises, the work sometimes sounds a bit soundscape-minded as well.
+ + + : Anemone Tube is a band for ambient finer tasters. It’s not exactly the most familiar formation and yet it features a truly sound alchemist. It’s a rough ambient exposure, which also moves into a kind of dark reverie. The industrial elements inject a harder and somewhat ‘naughty’ touch on top of the work. Hanser is a quite creative artist in the use of dark noises and field recordings. I especially recommend both last cuts of the album reaching a total sonic apotheosis reminding me of Cold Meat Industry productions.
– – – : Aside of the less accessible sound approach, this album sounds a bit versatile. Anemone Tube moves from one style to another; it however remains a homogenous entity, but I would have preferred to get a more constant dark-ambient style such as both final cuts.
Conclusion: Anemone Tube composes ambient/industrial music with a wider spectrum of influences, this way creating a very personal and diversified sound.
