Genre/Influences: Minimal-Electro, Electro-Wave.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Ohne Nomen is an Italian project driven by Fra ‘AngeNoir’ Marlat and Filippo Marlat (Iamnoone) while Stephan Seth (still involved with Iamnoone) wrote the lyrics of this debut full-length.
Content: I never heard of this formation before and discovered an 80s inspired production. The songs are mainly into Minimal/Electro-Wave music, some passages becoming pretty minimal-like while other parts have been reinforced by guitar sounds. Fra ‘AngeNoir’ Marlat sings with a sexy accent, her rather cold expression sometimes reminding me of Kriistal Ann. The song “Fell”, which was previously released as a single has been remixed while there’s another song remixed as well.
+ + + : This work is a pretty cool discovery and an album I would recommend without hesitation. First there’s this sexy accent of the singer, which together with the 80s flavored music has something cool. The first half of the work is a succession of great songs accomplished with efficient choruses. The remix of “Fell” is a potential club-killer.
– – – : The second part of the album is just a tiny bit under the level of the other tracks although “Nightflower” remains a great piece of music.
Conclusion: Ohne Nomen is an interesting newcomer, which I can only, but recommend if you’re into Electro/Wave music.
Best songs: “Fell – Nightflower Remix”, “City Of The Death”, “Feel The Breath”, “Ishtar”.
