Xalm Retribution – «Orbiter»

Xalm Retribution - «Orbiter»Cat.# … DNA 184
Release Date … 01.09.2016
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC

In his new work «Orbiter» Xalm Retribution adds some new colours to his usual dark ambient palette, and all these colours are cold, very cold. Staying inside classic dark ambient borders, Xalm Retribution managed to utilize some elements typical to work of Massimo Magrini and late Akifumi Nakajima.

Now technogenous, inanimate, artificial sounds fill his vibrant soundscapes. In the waves of slow low-frequency pulsations, you can no longer find any industrial noises or guitar drones or something else you are used to find in straight dark ambient works. There are only electrical circuits’ music, singing induction coils, oxidized pins’ staccatos and conducting switches in the finally abandoned Solaris station. Shadows run their fingers over strings of crackling electrical wiring. Faulty сlimatic plants’ din fills dark corridors. Obscurity and desolation…

Tracklisting:

  1. Xalm Retribution – Path (07:47)
  2. Xalm Retribution – Noise (03:51)
  3. Xalm Retribution – Way (08:08)
  4. Xalm Retribution – Suit (04:36)

Each of these ten sombre tracks slowly narrates about cruelty and indifference, lack of will, sufferings and slow fall tо the depths of poverty and depravation.
