"For those who are not yet familiar with the work of Giuseppe Verticchio (Nimh), this Rome-based artist has created a handful of ethno-ritual, soothing and ominous industrial drone releases for labels such as Silentes, Eibon and Rage in Eden. Circle of the Vain Prayers appears to be his latest effort to see the light on the martial/industrial/neo-folk label Rage in Eden.

In this new release Nimh reiterates on the entrancing neo-spiritual and mystical direction of his processed and semi acoustic ambient music. However, contrary to his past albums such as The Missing Tapes and Travel Diary which also have an inclination for ethnic droning sonographies, this new album reinforces the darkened religious facet with a great corpus of enthralling and vertiginous loops which advocates ritual trance states observable during shamanic ceremonies/catharsis processes and astral voyages.

Based on small repetition of phrases and electronically processed figures of acoustic timbres the music really seems to communicate with some invisible forces and deities from the nature. Musical comparisons can be found at the same time in the experimental-conceptual music of Henry Flynt, Angus McLise or Lamonte Young as well as in the static dreamy ambient tracks of Rapoon. The whole thing is enriched by diverse noisy sequences, field recordings and samples. A very sensorial and tripped out hypnotic avant-folk ambient album. An absorbing and vertical listening treat for the ears. Absolutely recommended for fans of blackened looping ambiences." [Igloo Mag]
