Genre/Influences: Dark-Ambient, Experimental, Ambient-Noise.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: This work released in 2022 by the Bulgarian label Corvus is a split album between Егзорцизам (Exorcism) and Катакомбная Церковь (Catacomb Church). Each project released one single, extended, track.
Content: Exorcism takes off with an elaborated and diversified piece of Dark-Ambient driven cut. The final part of the track evolves into a more Ritual style. Catacomb Church deals with a different genre, creating a kind of ambient-Noise piece of music dominated by boiling sound waves.
+ + + : I especially like the track by Exorcism for its sophisticated and elaborated writing. But I also enjoy the way this cut is evolving featuring different sound layers and even fragmented vocal effects.
– – – : The track by Catacomb Church sounds like an antithesis to Exorcism but in the end it’s all about personal taste.
Conclusion: This is an interesting split album revealing a great obscure Ambient piece by Exorcism.
Best songs: “Узалудне молитве” by Exorcism.
