Genre/Influences: Dark-Ambient, Cinematographic.
Format: Digital, CD.
Content: RNGMNN moves on the desolate atmosphere revealed at his previous album “Arctic Interference”. The tracks have been progressively built up, revealing a Cinematographic approach mixed with isolated drones. You now and then will notice subtle, icy blasts, which are resulting in a few true climaxes. The tracklist is little by little evolving till reaching an impression of desolation and horror (cf. “Up North”).
+ + + : The front cover stands for the feeling of desolation and despair. The composition is meticulously worked out and elaborated; the tracks revealing a detailed canvas of noises and effects. It all together creates a sphere of nearby disaster, a kind of sonic apocalypse, which is mainly emerging at “Fragile Ground” and “Up North”. The drones in the background are accentuating the visual strength of the work. The composition is pretty efficient and will definitely give you goosebumps.
– – – : The title track, which also is the opener of the album is not exactly the most accomplished and efficient cut of the work.
Conclusion: RNGMNN is clearly confirming its growing status as a talented Dark-Ambient artist.
Best songs: “Fragile Ground”, “Up North”, “Nebula”, “Down South”.
