Album Review
Gabe
Reviewed 2003-06-26 
Ambient electronics, supposedly depicting the depths of hell (this is part of a trilogy of albums based on Dante's Inferno). The mood, of course, is not nearly as dire as one would be put into from reading the source but this is a very good example of aurally evoking and ominous atmosphere situation. Recommended.

1. Rude, buzzy rhythm
2. Understated sense of dread; quiet, spooky
3. Not jolly, exactly, but a little lively
4. Picking up a bit of speed and volume and chaotic branches of noise
5. Now more dystopic; uneasy, harsh tonalities, stutter-step rhythms
6. Featureless plodding
7. Featureless galloping - faster than prior track but still unsure of direction
8. Drawn out phrase on bass and guitar repeated to hypnotic effect
9. Unrelenting passage through an underground cave - all echoes and burbling, unseen waters
