Genre/Influences: Cinematic, Minimal-Electro, Industrial, IDM.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Peter Rybar aka ‘Ryby’ strikes back with the second full length album of his Triode side-project. We know this Slovakian artist for his involvement with Disharmony and of course as label owner.

Content: NullVector” became more diversified than its predecessor “Karma” (2022). The compositions are still inspired and driven by Cinematic/Ambient music but “NullVector” is also exploring a more intelligent side of Electronic music. Another familiar element are the passages with Gregorian chants. Notice by the way that Headdreamer, Stone Wired and Oxyd (another project Ryby has been involved with) have been contributing to one song each.

+ + + : I liked the debut-album but “NullVector” is even more convincing. I enjoy the album’s diversity made of sound intelligence featuring subtle sound treatments and delicate arrangements. The opening cut “Silver Line” is a great exposure but I also have to mention “Dementia” for its Gregorian chants and “Shadows” for its delicate composition. The work tracklist evolves towards a darker and menacing final part which is a great apotheosis.

– – – : I regret there aren’t more songs featured on this album.

Conclusion: “NullVector” is an excellent successor to the debut album of Triode; intelligent Electro-Cinematic music with a darker touch on top.

Best songs: “Silver Line”, “Shadows”, “Dementia”.

Rate: 8.

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.
