Comment: Portugal-based Vitor Bruno Pereia aka Aires & Rui. P. Andrade`s Pânico-Ambiente was one of the top notches in the previous year where picturesque sonic landscapes were seamlessly interwoven with subtle white noise elements which ultimately appeared to be an idiosyncratic top notch. In fact, Aires continues to explore the direction within this 3-piece issue, however, by adding some new growing elements and tones to the blend. For instance, he exploits some robot-soaked sounds at Fantasma I, and manipulates with ominous vibes at Fantasma III thereby entering into the area of dark ambient (although the first two-three minutes are put down to a subtle electro-acoustic manipulation). All these elements used to spring up gradually as if a minimal music record with a specifically winding thread and point. Although the issue is pre-dominantly guitar driven the guitars are not a purpose on its own but just being an instrument which are subjugated to be sublimely manipulated and warped. The issue is a part of the discography of Bad Panda Records. In a nutshell, the result is a solid follow-up to Pânico-Ambiente.
