Genre/Influences: Dark-cinematographic, electro-ambient.
Background/Info: Set up in 2013 by Vadym Sycantrhope, Coven Project became a rather prolific artist in a rather short lapse of time. This new opus is the first one released on Noctivagant Records.
Content: The cinematographic approach is very present on this work. Sometimes mixed with a neo-classical touch, mainly played by piano, the work could be the perfect soundtrack for an imaginary sci-fi movie. And that’s not really a coincidence as Coven Project is inspired by movies and some film directors. “First Step On The Moon” is a real interesting cut and totally appropriated with the anniversary of the first man on the moon. It sounds pretty space-like. Next to the classical ambient tracks, I also noticed a few different compositions carried by impressive sound treatments.
+ + + : The main characteristic and strength of this project definitely is the ambient side. It’s a relaxing experience with some neo-classic input. But my personal favorite cuts are the one that are a little bit different. I here especially refer to “Necro Stellar”. This cut has been composed with impressive sound treatments. It sounds more experimental, but absolutely genius. Last, but not least, I also like the artwork of the front cover.
– – – : This album features two parts revealing a total amount of 18 cuts, which is maybe a bit too long for an album.
Conclusion: This album is an invitation to discover the contemporary universe of space-like inspired music.
Best songs: “Necro Stellar”’, Symphony Of Precarity”, “Intro Mainstream”.
