Genre/Influences: Experimental, Industrial.
Background/Info: Behind Nyctalllz is hiding Iranian artist Morego Dimmer who’s involved with multiple projects, Xerxes The Dark being for sure the most familiar and renowned one. Nyctalllz is a project you might know from compilations or previous works. “Persian Trip” is a new work featuring seven tracks and inspired by fantasy about ‘A guy in modern Persia has been intoxicated by an odd & unknown essence. Soon his mind creates noises and closed-eye visuals. The journey has begun, but the guy has no idea what’s really going on. It seems his empty-industrialized soul can fly through time…’
Content: The content of this work also has something of a fly… an imaginary walk through abstract sonic compositions, which are mixing total Experimentalism and Electro-Industrial passages. It has something of a free-Industrial interpretation, creating a sonic mayhem. But you’ll also notice more inhibited passages with repetitive Electro sequences.
+ + + : Nyctalllz sounds a bit as loose cannon. It’s an unpredictable sonic experience built up with a mishmash of sounds and noises. I like some old-school elements reminding me of the Electro-Industrial work of SPK. I also like rhythmic patterns making the work more accessible.
– – – : The Experimental format of the work makes it not very accessible for a wider audience.
Conclusion: “Persian Trip” sounds like assisting to sonic surgery; decomposing and recomposing sounds and noises!
Best songs: “Maguy”, “To Ke Az”, “Ku Zeh Gar”.
