New York's solo project have returned with a new recording which shows the musical direction going into a post apocalyptic mixture of dark ambient, hardcore, world music and jazz and this is a review of his self released 2017 album "I Will Not Survive Another Winter" which will be released in September.
Field Recordings and elements of avant garde noise start off the album along with some dark soundscapes and when percussion is utilized it gives the songs more of a tribal and world music feeling and the music also gets very harsh at times and some of t he tracks are very long and epic in length.
Elements of industrial and dark ambient can also be heard at times while all of the tracks sound different from each other along with some real drums also being utilized briefly and as the album progresses guitars, bass, piano, keyboards, analog synth, harmonicas and theremin's can be heard in certain sections of the recording as well as some touches of jazz music and there is also a brief use of noisecore style screams and clean singing.
On this recording Gridfailure keeps a very experimental and dark ambient style while also adding in elements of world music, jazz and hardcore to create something very different and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Gridfailure and if you are a fan of experimental and dark ambient, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sew Nothing, Reap Nothingness" "Hari Kari Superstars" and "No Longer Communicable". 8 out of 10.
