Bell are a solo project from the United States that plays a mixture of death industrial, power electronics, harsh noise and dark ambient and this is a review of his 2018 album "Secrets From A Distant Star" which was released by Cyclopean Eye Productions.
Atmospheric yet distorted sounding drones start off the album while the music also brings in sci-fi orientated soundscapes at times along with the songs also bringing in a great amount of power electronics, harsh noise and death industrial elements as well as some spoken word parts being added in some parts of the songs.
When synths are utilized they bring in elements of dark ambient while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with some of the spoken word parts have a robotic and futuristic sound to them and as the album progresses some of the tracks start adding in more crazy screams.as well as a brief use of shamanistic and ritualistic sounding drum beats and chants and all of the tracks sound different from each other and some of t he songs also bring in clean vocals.
Bell plays a musical style which takes death industrial, harsh noise, power electronics and dark ambient and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover Occultism, Ancient Mysteries, Forbidden Sciences, Conspirac Theories, U.F.O's, Paranormal and Esoteric themes.
In my opinion Bell is a very great sounding mixture of death industrial, power electronics, harsh noise and dark ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Call To The Himalayan Snow Creature" "Amazon Sun" "Expedition Tibet" and "Song From The Hollow Earth". 8/5 out of 10.
