This is a review of another recording from Earhead with the music being a mixture of dark ambient and harsh noise and the album was self released in 2012 and called "Tristitia".
"Suicide" which is also the first song on the album opens up with dark ambient noises and drones along with some nature sounds and harsh loops and power electronics and as time goes on by the music gets more loud and brutal.
"Chaos" begins with dark ambient sounds and drones along with some synths and a minute alter spoken words along with some harsh sounding loops and power electronics are added into the music and as time goes on by the music gets a lot more diverse in sound.
"Life Is..." opens up with dark and atmospheric sounds along with some ambient style synths and you can hear the sounds of nature throughout the song as well as the music getting a lot more diverse as time goes on by as well as adding in experimental and noise elements.
"For Those That Hate The Sun" starts up with dark ambient synths and drone as well as an atmospheric background which also utilizes elements of avant garde and harsh noise power electronics and after awhile the music starts utilizing a shamanistic feeling to it as well as getting more diverse in sound.
"Emptiness" kicks in with avant garde sounding noises and power electronics as well as some dark ambient synths shortly after that which also takes the music into a more atmospheric direction as well as adding in diverse elements through the song.
"Dark Floyd" comes in with harsh noise power electronics and loops along with some vocals as well as some high pitched screams and after around 8 minutes the music takes samples from a Pink Floyd song.
"Bab Aziz" breaks in with dark ambient style synths and atmospheric drones which also leads up to some drum programming and spoken word samples and after awhile t he music starts utilizing some elements of industrial.
"There is No Beauty In Life" which is also the last song on the album begins with harsh noise sounds and heavy guitar riffs and you can also hear atmospheric elements and synths being utilized in the background and halfway through the song the music stops and black metal screams start to take over along with the guitars making a comeback and a few minutes later spoken word parts are added into the music.
Song themes cover darkness and depression, while the production has a very dark, harsh, raw and primitive sound to it along with all of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Earhead and if you are a fan of dark ambient and harsh noise, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Suicide" "For Those That Hate The Sun" and "There is No Beauty In Life". RECOMMENDED BUY.
