Illuminoscolate/Terminal/Kalpamantra/2012 Album Review


  Illuminoscolate  are  a  band  from  Melbourne,  Australia  that  plays  dark  ambient/drone  mixed  with  industrial  and  experimental  music  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  album  "Terminal"  which  was  released  by  Kalpamantra.

  Synths  are  all  primitive  sounding  dark  ambient  drones  with  some  experimental  and  industrial  influences,  while  the  sound  effects  bring  a  very  dark and  avant  garde/noise  sound  to  the  music,  with  the  songs  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  Vocals  and  songwriting  are  absent  from  this  recording  with  all  of  the  music  being  all  instrumental  except  for  a  few  samples  and  spoken  word  parts,  while  the  songs  revolve  around  dark  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Illuminoscalte  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  dark  ambient,  drone,  industrial  and experimental  music  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of this  style,  you  should  check  this  band  out.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Temporal"  and  "Unspoken".  RECOMMENDED.
