Genre/Influences: Experimental, Dark-Ambient, Apocalyptic-Rock.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Polish artist Artur Rumiński has been involved with many projects such as Arrm, Furia, Gruzja, Thaw ao but is also releasing music under his own name. A few productions have been released thus far, but Artur Rumiński now joined hands together with Zoharum to unleash seven new compositions.
Content: The tracks don’t have real titles, but are simply numbered from 1 till 7. The listeners will embark on an apocalyptic trip, which has something ominous although some passages are also dreamy. The main atmosphere remains menacing. The artist is mainly using guitar and effects to create his sonic universe, which can’t leave you unmoved.
+ + + : Artur Rumiński has a very unique style and that’s an aspect I always appreciate. The approach is not that new, but this kind of Apocalyptic-Rock, which can be also defined as simply ‘ambient’, creates an overwhelming atmosphere. It comes mainly through on, “II” and the menacing “IIIII”. The dreamy contrast created by “III” is somewhat surprising although a cool relief.
– – – : The album only features 27 minutes of music, but is going through a few monotonous passages.
Conclusion: Artur Rumiński is not my favorite Zoharum artist, but brings extra diversity to the label.
Best songs: “IIIII”, “II”.
