Genre/Influences: Dark-Ambient, Cinematic.
Background/Info: This is the debut album of Mines Of Nebula which is a solo-project driven by Jester Valpurgus.
Content: The work is leading the listener into an imaginary world of darkness and light; there’s a constant duality between relaxing, vintage, Ambient music on one side and a darker, space-like universe on the other side.
+ + + : This is an interesting interpretation of Ambient music; it makes me think to legendary Ambient artists which have been transposed into a darker perspective.
– – – : I’m missing a true climax in the tracks although the work remains fascinating -and probably even more while joined by illustrations.
Conclusion: The darker side of Space-Ambient music.
Best songs: “Secrets Of The Astral Spirit”, “The Urza’s Tower”.
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.
