🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Dark-Ambient, Industrial.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: The newest opus of Polish solo-project Paranoia Inducta is a conceptual one. The work has been inspired by the ‘current events of the modern world, such as pandemics, war, globalization and the widespread exploitation of the individual.’ It has been transposed into nine tracks.  

Content: If you’re a bit familiar with the work of this artist -and especially his latest releases, you’ll rapidly recognize the global sound approach and -format. Paranoia Inducta composes inhibited tracks driven by Dark-Ambient atmospheres. It has been achieved with heavy, epic, arrangements while you’ll also notice field recordings and passages with female chants creating an abyssal sensation.

+ + + : Paranoia Inducta composes music at the border of different -although related, music genres. I especially like the Dark-Ambient basis of the work which is completed by impressive, epic, arrangements. Buzzing sound waves accentuate the darkness this album is made of although I also noticed a part of reverie revealed at “The End Of Our Time”. Paranoia Inducta composes music with an impressive sonic canvas featuring field recordings. It only empowers the diversity of the work. Last but not least, I once again have to say a word about the great, artistic, A5 digipak format.

– – – : There’s something to say about each single cut but to speak about an absolute masterpiece I’m missing an absolute climax. You however don’t hear me complaining.

Conclusion: This is one more great and fascinating piece of dark music by an underrated artist in the genre.

Best songs: “Demon’s Factory”, “The End Of Our Time”, “New World Order”, “Lords Of Illusions”.

Rate: 8½.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

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.
