Finland's Tonttu and Russia's Fahl team up on this recording and and go into more of an experimental and dark ambient direction and this is a review of their 2018 collaboration album "Was Wurden Gnome Sagen (The Gnome Apocalypse)" which was released by Panicmachine.
Ambient style soundscapes along with some spoken word parts start off the album while the music also brings in a great amount of atmospheric sounding synths and after awhile elements of industrial are added onto the recording along with the music getting very experimental at times.
Drones can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while the music also captures a very ritualistic atmosphere along with the music also adding in a great amount of avant garde and psychedelic elements as well as being very apocalyptic at times and both of the songs are divided into 17 different parts and at times the music captures the soundtrack feeling of an 80's horror or science fiction film and acoustic guitars, clean vocals and folk music elements are added onto the recording.
On this recording Tonrttu move way from the metal elements of their regular albums and mix their music in with Fahl's dark ambient style while still keeping the same concepts, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover Anti Gnome themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding collaboration between Tonttu and Fahl and if you are a fan of dark ambient, you should check out this recording. 8 out of 10.
