Gridfailure are a musical project that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording he teams with Megalophobe a solo project to create an ambient noise mixture and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Dendritic" which will be released in April.
Nature sounds start off the album along with some clean guitar playing a few seconds later that also adds in a touch of post rock while theremins along with loops and pedal effects can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
At times the music can be very experimental and avant garde while the synths and keys mix in a great amount of ambient elements along with a great majority of the tracks being all instrumental and as the album progresses traces of harsh noise can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and electric guitars are also used briefly along with one track also introducing spoken word parts onto the recording.
Gridfailure and Megalaphobe creates a recording that takes dark ambient, noise and experimental and mixes them together to create something very original and the production sounds very dark and lo-fi sounding.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding joint effort from Gridfailure and Megalaphobe and if you are a fan of ambient, experimental and noise, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Opportunistic Twilight Predation" "A Corpse At Every Funeral" and "An Ode Across Dimensions". 8 out of 10.
