This is a review of a split ep between Virginia's Never Presence Forever and New York's Gridfailure and we will start off the review with Never Presence Forever a band that plays a mixture of dark ambient and death industrial.
Their side of the split starts out with electronic drones and elements of dark ambient can be heard at times along with one of their tracks being very long and epic in length and their music also incorporates a great amount of soundscapes and after awhile elments of hardh noise and death industrial are added into the music and you can also hear demonic growls and screams in the background briefly while shouts are added onto t he last track and the production sounds very dark and raw.
In my opinion Never Presence Forever are a very great sounding mixture of dark ambient and death industrial and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out their side of t he split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Unwell".
Next up is Gridfailure a solo project that h as been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of experimental, industrial, ambient and dark hardcore.
Their side of the split starts out with harsh soundscapes and power electronics as well as some field recordings and bass can also be heard in the background and after awhile more elments of noise and industrial are added onto the recording and the track is also 15 minutes in length anf there is also a brief use of acoustic guitars and as the song progresses high pitched screams can also be heard at times and the production sounds very dark and raw.
In my opinion this is another great sounding track from Gridfailure and if you are a fans of industrial, ambient and noise, you should check out their side of the split.
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of death industrial, harsh noise and dark ambient. 8 out of 10.
