Genre/Influences: Dark-ambient, cinematographic.

Background/Info: “Abysmal” resulted from the common efforts between two artists hailing from different cultures, but sharing a similar passion in music. Pavel Malyshkin (Belarus) and Morego Dimmer (Iran) joined hands exploring the darkest depths of the ocean.

Content: The result of this sonic exploration and creation is a 6-tracks album on, which you clearly can recognize numerous aquatic sounds and noises. This album has been accomplished as a fusion between field recordings and sonic treatments. A few spoken passages are emerging now and then. The listener feels embarked on a frightening trip throughout an imaginary aquatic world where the water has been replaced by icy sounds. And you sometimes will get scared when a cold electronic signal suddenly appears at the surface of this dark abyss.

+ + + : The tracks have been accomplished with a slow progression, reaching their climax of horror right at the final part of the work. “Creatures Of The Depths” and “The Sailor’s Song” both are overwhelming pieces of dark-ambient music. There’s a strong visual aspect emerging from this opus, which creates a film that will be different for each listener. This is a fully accomplished work between two artists, who I can only encourage to renew this experience around another theme.

– – – : I can’t really say that the opening cuts are not convincing, but maybe a bit long-during till you finally join more exciting and accomplished tracks at the second half of the record.

Conclusion: If Jules Verne would have been alive he would maybe have used this opus to bring his “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea” on music…

Best songs: “Creatures Of The Depths”, “The Sailor’s Song”, “Bathyscaphe”.

Rate: (8).
