Sadomasters - Astral Shadows (Peru)
Cult project "Sadomasters" marked a step further into the musical history in Peru . Their aim was to break boundaries into the realms of dark doom metal industrial atmospherics , at the time there were no bands or projects related to the atmospheric and esoteric side of metal , actually they went far beyond that into the experimental realms which happened to be a very closed circle of people who could understand and validate the creativity of their founders . Sadomasters were : Carlos Chac more (Voice and bass in the legendary Tsm)and Maria alejandra Gomez ,both were running a zine and a tape label supporting the efforts of underground bands in peru and worldwide. Their unusual methods of creating esoteric music were inspired by the calmer side of music being at the same time very disturbing ,the use of subtle voices , ghostly whispers ,hellish atmospheres and the use of noise ,not falling into the ordinary . a demo tape called "cacon" was shown to a close friends of them which gave very supportive comments comparing with the works of early industrialist "throbbing gristle" or even early "cabaret voltaire" . afterwards their works were compared to "neptune towards" , "beherit" , "havohej" and mainly "shadowcaster". the duet split after few recordings ,this is the recovery of their lost works .
Shambala - Etherical Kingdom (Peru)
Spacy, etherical, sometimes complex ambient and electro-acoustic music,the use of rhythm but in a different context ,using ethnical instruments as
tabla without definite structure ,evokes an unsettling beauty, like being timeless in a cave or chamber watching the space. Nearly and hour of atmospheric drones and complex tonal shifts can leave you transfixed and still.
IPRI - Baravou Vedu (Peru)
Part of the space music current series , IPRI brings a exquisite minimalist work that is worth to be heard. Dark ethereal strains of eerie ambience remind me just a touch of Jonn Serrie, Steve Roach.with two long tracks each one is long to recreate two moments in space solemnity , shades of light and dark. . There are just deep undulating currents of sound that makes you live in imaginary space.Brings something new to add to the muzak ambient genre. For listeners of Robert Rich, Steve Roach, Jonn Serrie ; highly recommended.
