13/09/2011 : MONOLITH - The Inner Core

MONOLITH

The Inner Core

MusicCD


[92/100]   
13/09/2011, Karenza NIXON

MONOLITH returns with a brand new album ‘The Inner Core’. The solo project of electronic mastermind, Belgium’s ERIC VAN WONTERGHEM and he is again exploring new territories through MONOLITH. Transcending the boundaries of genres and engaging all of our senses with a blend of transic rhythms infused with industrial soundscapes and more than a touch of exotic flavour thrown in for good measure.

‘Dance Macabre’ (rhythmically hypnotic), ‘The Healer’ (exotically infused), ‘The Curse’ (incredible industrial landscapes) and 'Terror Disco' (ingeminate loops with industrial overtones) are, for me, the stand out tracks. It has to be said, there are no 'bad' tracks. Each track has real quality, exactly what you'd expect from MONOLITH. The addition of remixes by GEISTFORM, ESPLENDOR GEOMETRICO, MERCYDESIGN, SYNAPSCAPE and LUSTMORD give the already excellent tracks an extra depth and character, often times missing in the addition of remixed tracks. The only flaw for me must be the placement of the excellent ‘The Sky Become Dark’. The ethereal quality and incredible arrangements on this track make it simply beautiful, but it’s lost between the end of the 'real' album and the addition of the remixes. A definate 'BUY!'

There are two contradicting aspects of individualism: the promise that you can achieve anything and the blaming of the individual for not achieving it.

I broke away from the pressure you have as an artist to appeal to a certain type of audience, to create dance floor hits.
