Genre … Drone, Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Another work from the Russian project Paul Minesweeper presents a mixture of several genres created without regard to the established traditions of the Russian ambient scene. It’s also a logical sequel for his release «Kingdom Of Grey». Opposing common calm sound natural for ambient works, this release is inspired by the slogan «A wall of sound right in the face». Being in a continuous metamorphosis of the timbre, drones meet logical melodic progressions with hard electronic bass preceding electric guitar and bass guitar, which echo and highlight the electronic component of the sound stream. Smoothly flowing from note to note, absolutely arrhythmic combinations of melodies ended up with the death march in the last composition made of noise and decay.

In fact, this work is an electronic ambient for metal music fans. As in the previous work, there is no place for strict fixing on a deep meaning or for propaganda of any ideas and beliefs. The author provides complete freedom for listener to explore himself since as he considers the individual perception and reflection as the greatest right and benefit for the listener. However, the general mood of the release is clear for everyone: sympathy for the darkness in each of us, immersion in nonexistence and self-decay.

«EX LUX» is the first episode in the string of the releases under the «EX» mark.

Paul Minesweeper – «Kingdom Of Grey»

Release Date … 21.07.2015
Genre … Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

In his «Kingdom Of Grey» Paul dedicates its stream to Saint-Petersburg and life in its general sense – both are monochrome – white and black events, from time to time.

Solid and soft drone collaborates with low-frequency self-consistent foundation, which is very close to common music in its origin.

Without focusing on events, it stays endlessly grey – pure balance of happiness and sufferings. But at the same time any person can find something private in this stream.

There’s no place for deep meaning and the whole work is done for listeners, their reflective minds and exploration by themselves.
