Genre/Influences: Ritual, Experimental.
Background/Info: We welcome the debut-EP of the Polish AriyAgnA-project featuring five songs.
Content: The main source of inspiration emerging at this work is a Ritual side characterized by uplifting rhythmic sections and a sort of sacred chants. The work has been achieved with a solid sonic canvas which is now and then becoming pretty chaotic. Notice by the way the work is featuring noticeable samplings by so called ‘involuntary sample donors’ like Rammstein, Sepultura, Slayer, Matmos and many more.
+ + + : I especially enjoyed the Ritual side of the work emerging at “Shining Mightiness” and “To Katharsis”. The elevating effect emerging at both cuts has something magic. That’s only reinforced by the chants and singing.
– – – : The composition is too often moving into pure sonic mayhem and chaos.
Conclusion: I’m not entirely convinced by this work although AriyAgnA clearly features good ideas.
Best songs: “To Katharsis”, “Shining Mightiness”.
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.
