Comment: this 4-notch outing by Leipzig, German artist Olliver Wichmann aka Synflict is a classical post-industrial one with slowly progressing sonic terrains being culminated atop with spiky, metallic sparks and hollow echoes and spoken flickers the last of them at a time may be perceived as the playground for sanity and madness to get tightly interacted. By focusing on the titles of the issue you can meet such ones as Unrest, Exhaustion, Flashback, and Void. Each of these compositions used to be truly long yet they constitute a coherent solar system with one another. It does say quite much about the issue. By moving along this path you will be discerning uncanny, strange sounds surely of not coming from your safe and secure world. Additionally, at the foot one can hear sounds being inclined to the so-called Klingklang aesthetic being also closely related to German electronic circles. Besides the predominant electronic manipulation one can partake in guitar induced flows and because of that there are up a bunch of intriguing combinations, mind-provoking interactions to be interrupted by short circuits (read it as incisive sonic effects). On the other side, it is a subtle drift between emotions and the repulsion of them. This disturbingly awesome issue is a part of the discography of an Italian imprint, Nostress.
