Genre/Influences: Dark-Ambient, Ritual.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Anthony Armageddon Destroyer strikes back with a new work of his Paranoia Inducta project. This album has been introduced as the darkest work ever achieved by the Polish artist. 

Content: After the excellent “Viri Probi”- album released last year, this is a new and extremely dark voyage throughout the corridors of Dark-Ambient music. The composition is mixing dark strings and humming atmospheres together with field recordings and unavoidable heavenly chants. Some passages have been reinforced by crushing- and/or metal percussion. The work sounds maybe a bit less Ritual-like than its predecessor although there are still elements featured.

+ + + : First there’s a great, artistic artwork featuring a front cover, which looks like announcing the trip of sonic terror you’ll have to experience. And the trip indeed is worthy of examination as the opus reveals a solid ‘classical’ Dark-Ambient sound. The chants accentuate the obscure and hostile atmosphere of the music. The tracks have been progressively built up. I like the child sampling running through “Wounded Souls”, which finally ends with shouts of terror. Another essential piece is “Happy Death Day” for its crushing percussion and overwhelming chants. The album has something pretty intimate, but it remains a freaky, great experience in sound.

– – – : I don’t see major negative points at this album, but I get the sensation Paranoia Inducta is still able to do better and especially reaching a total climax.

Conclusion: Paranoia Inducta is one of the most promising projects I discovered in the Dark-Ambient genre during the past years. The Ritual touch on top of the work injects something extra.

Best songs: “Happy Death Day”, “Wounded Souls”, “And Then There…”, “Follow The Voids”, Soundless Echo”.

Rate: 8½.
