with ‘no man’s land’ the exceptional swedish artist michael idehall opens another chapter in his self-defined history of seancetronica – a musical genre based on traditional dark industrial in combination with experimental electronics, tight rhythmic settings and intensely vocalized song structures.
idehall’s repetitive, tautologous compositions create a dreamy, otherwordly atmosphere with a paralyzing, hypnotic impact and a supremely ceremonious feel. pounding funereal beats and dominating sub bass drones build a solid foundation for this album’s work, supplemented by abrasive, distorted synth textures and deep, ghostly vocal incantations.
a masterwork of a release, showcasing michael idehall’s outstanding position in contemporary industrial music. ant-zen and beläten invite you to visit ‘no man’s land’ – easy to enter, but hard to leave.
