ANTIKATECHON - Woe is the Reward

Format: CD
Label & Cat.Number: Rage in Eden RAGE105
Release Year: 2014
Note: second full-length album by the ex ORNAMENT after the album on SILENTES, everything drowns here in melancholic archaic drones opening up amorph abysses with far away sounds like metal-clatter, vocals, guitar melodies, piano patterns and field recordings of rain and children, etc... somehow this balances between a "loss of mind" and an almost sacral, smooth melancholy.... feat. GUISEPPE VERTICCHIO aka NIMH
Price (incl. 19% VAT): €12.00

More Info

Davide Del Col has been working in the specific and uncompromising ritual dark ambient genre since the end of the 90s, this firstly under the moniker of Ornament for a couple of very rare limited editions then as Antikatechon which now represents the highlight of his artistic and stylistic creativity. A first full length album has been published on Silentes Minimal Editions back in 2011, this one provides a very accomplished effort in the realms of hauntingly dark ambient music with a touch of melancholic-spiritual inflected nihilism. Signed on Rage in Eden, "Chrisma Crucifixorum" is an other eloquent and complex release which oscillates between stately gazing drone sequences and original audio treatments, the whole thing surrounded by a sacral aura. 2013 saw the rise of a collaborative effort with the pioneering ethno-noise ambient act Nimh, also from Italy. This musical meeting gave birth to a passionate and typical dark ambient offering. The conceptual-visual background is connected to the visions and powerful painting works of Goya. Davide Del Col presents here his new catchy electronic dark ambient release entitled "Woe is the Reward", welcomed by Rage in Eden Records. A tremendous, entrancing and blasting dark ambient odyssey full of majestic sound sculptures, huge resonances, bleak noises, metallic reverbs and many more. This sonic, soundtracky and "acoustically haunted" ambient symphony will totally enthrall and ravish the listener. Be prepared to this intense sonorous adventure. -- Philippe Blache
