This is a review of another recording from Arathgoth which continues his dungeon synth sound while also adding in science fiction and black metal elements with the album being called "Interplanetary travel" and released by Katabaz Records during the year of 2013.
The album starts out with classical music style sounds and after awhile they start adding in more ambient, experimental garde elements along with some epic and atmospheric dungeon synths and instead of the medieval sounds of the previous recording this album goes into a more futuristic direction.
As the album progresses you can hear some of the early works of Mortiis influencing the music while also being more modern at the same time as well as the synths bringing in a variety of many different sounding keys and as time goes on by you can also hearing some industrial being added onto the record which also leads to a small amount of guitar playing.
By the time the 4th song comes around the guitars start getting heavy and also bring a black metal influence to the music as well as mixing in melodic guitar leads and drum programming and when it gets into the 5th song robotic vocals along with spoken word parts are added in
This album is a huge stylistic change for Arathgoth , while the previous album was purely dungeon synth this album has more of a futuristic and sci-fi sound and he also brings in industrial and black metal influences to create a sound only he can call his own.
Song themes over darkness, cosmos, Star War and Science Fiction, while the production has a very strong and powerful sound and the synths and guitars all have a very great sound to them along with the last song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Arathgoth and if you are a fan of futuristic synth music with a black metal influence, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Interplanetary Travel" "My Gom Jabbar" "Monilith" and "Catches The Replicant". 9 out of 10.
