More Info

"Thick and spectral dark ambient, soaked with soft and flowing pads stratifications, wrapped in deep and penetrating low frequencies spires, enlightened by delicate and touching melodic inserts, profaned by echoes of reverberating metallic noises, clanging chains, circular mechanical movements, waves of indecipherable whispers, distant and suffering human voices... A great debut CD for Antikatechon, a project that showcases Davide Del Col's eclectic personality, already the unique mind of the Ornament project, and keyman of other recent collaborative projects such as Echran and Molnija Aura."

"Churches, crosses and titles in latin, one in russian: welcome to the world of gothic on the release by Antikatechon. I am slightly exaggerating the case of course, but its partly true. It opens with a mass of organ sounds and later on we find the slowed church bells and heavily layered voices, like at least four choirs humming and chanting. Vague rumble of percussion (metal perhaps). It may seem I didn't like this, but in fact I do. Small melodies pop up every now and then in this black mass of sound - with a double meaning here. Swirling layers of heavily processed sound - voices, instruments, field recordings - make a very dense work. Quite nice." [FdW/Vital Weekly]
