Comment: Thuuooom is an one-man, Finnish-based experimental/avant-garde combo whose nature is quite problematic to categorize properly for. Some albums of him seems to be more concept-relied or some instrument-centered ones. This time Tuomo`s 6-piece album is about intense, minimally treated ambient and drone explorations which in turn are embellished with obscure, black-coloured dust. Yet, the power of the album are brought forth thanks to some sonic minutiae, i.e barely audible, repetition-heavy oscillations.Furthermore, the closing track Release is built upon shimmering loops and adjacent, ascending synth chords. Very beautiful indeed.
