The eerie night transposes itself once again giving off a dim chance of hope, as the swaying pads and echo of the chant like vocals dive us into the first track of loneliness and despair on Vomito Negro's latest album Death Sun entitled, Time. With all the force of gloomy industrial influenced electronics this one leads perfectly as a soundscape of sorts leading us on the paths that unfolds. So, let’s get a little deeper on the cutting tray while these nine tracks lay forth upon us.
Strain sets us forth into one hell of a gloomy ebm track. The heaviness and dark vibe from the first track still carries threw in this track progressing into a very well structured, but minimal slower track sure to be great in the club swell as the miserable ride in the witching hour to which ever grave yard you shall choose to roam and dance amongst the shadows at.
The dawn rises with the tribal infused like sound that raise up the dead in Fighting the Force. As the catchy bass-line chimes right in with the rattle of the snare piercing in to perform the nights ritual of hard hitting drums that gather near and the gated noise structure that succumbs to this track quite frequently. So far this album seems to flow just fine from one track to the next.
Keeping this vision alive for me to stray from reality comes, Obsession, more-straight forward, less swing on the beat song while still keeping true with the rest of the album in its’ slightly over driven vocals soothing across the landscape of ebm with the dusting overture of noise that reins smack in the middle. Leaving us to stay, we shall stray to what we feel is next. Show us the way!
Not leaving one inch of rest, In Silent Pieces kicks right back into the same vibe that we left off from Fighting the Force. Bringing that signature sound that Vomito Negro is known for. The minimalistic, but structured sound that draws us in throughout this album thus far. Getting a bit redundant towards the middle this is still another great track none the less
White Lights keeps the gloomy darkened ebm/industrial going strong in its minimalistic approach but hitting the half way mark there doesn’t seem to be much progression leading us further down the road of despair.
Just when I thought things were taking more of a minimal direction I was thrown back with King of Thieves in which showed us that Vomito Negro can deliver the vile punishment of key progression, harshness and darkness that I have expected.
One of my favorites on the album Nairaland brings forth the tried and true minimalistic drum approach with a slightly structured and more diving complexity then we have been accustomed to thus far. Awesome track I must say.
Going out of from this album Vomit Negro gives us an instrumental ebm infused industrial track entitled Ange Fire.
All in all to sum things up on this one is quite difficult. Although a perfect album that seems to tell a story from the first track to the last, there isn’t much standout tracks alone but an as a work of art goes this is still a good album as a whole. I absolutely adore some of the rhythmic nature and darkness of such tracks as Fight the Force, Nairaland, and Stain. For fans and those unsure of Vomito Negro I still suggest this album for a great listen of despair, gloom, and desperation alike.
