Portuguese base Cronica Electronica label released in November 2008 his fourth full-length album “Ification”.
On this CD collaborate Christoph de Babalon on sample guitar on the opener “Fire”, Austrian Radian’s member Martin Brandlmayr on drums on “After the bomb” and “Iron Sky” and Alexander von Bolzn, screms on “Sonomatopeia” and “Iron Sky” and Anke Eckardt, bass guitar on “End”. These collaborations based the compositions for this album.
The opener “Fire” is a shocking strummed sample guitar of de Babalon. The unsteady atmosphere of “After the Bomb” reveals a dark ambience and underrated splashing drums. Stunning!
“Approximation” it’s a powerful classic string section, low horns and deep into a mysterious world.
“Night Flight” continuous with murky corridors that synthetic walls built. Sonomatopeia brings an abstract ambience and lament screams.
“End” is a long drone piece made out of fragmented digital sounds and “Metal Sky” that close this record, shows Brandlmyr on drums over saturated bass lines giving to this track a rock like tune. Guillermo Escudero
