Project Shadowkind – Regurgitated (Digital Album – Project Shadowkind)
Genre/Influences: Industrial, ambient, electronics, experimental.
Background/Info: Project Shadowkind is a British solo-project driven by David Maniatis-Gill. A few digital releases have been released thus far. “Regurgitated” features 5 remixes from ‘older’ songs plus 2 new cuts.
Content: There’s a twist between different music styles, which remains strongly inspired by industrial- and electronic music. Among both new songs I noticed impressive sound treatments supported by haunting atmospheres and some lost screams (cf. “Hellbound”).
Two remixes have been accomplished by Non-Bio, who is an interesting artist and compatriot of Project Shadowkind. All the remixes reveal all different influences running through the work of the band.
+ + + : I like the diversity, but especially the great sound treatments and some monstrous industrial sound running through this work. “Hellbound” is a damn great piece of music, but I also have to mention the “Ambient Mix” of “Contamination”.
– – – : I’m not sure “Regurgitated” is the best way to discover this band, but I only can advise to have a listen at the Bandcamp site of the band.
Conclusion: This work sounds like a sonic patchwork driven by impressive and industrial-like sound arrangements.
Best songs: “Hellbound”, “Contamination – Ambient Mix”.
