Yog Sothoth - Dreams of Mystery (38061)
The short history of Michael Wilkes teaches us that he got interested
in EM at the beginning of the 90's and that his sources of inspiration
were Jean Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk.
In 1991 he based his first band (Mystical Light) with a close friend
(André Willms) and began the composition of his first titles. More
than 18 years later, he was put in touch with Pyramid Peak's founder
Axel Stupplich with whom he shares a passion for astronomy. It's the
latter who encouraged him to restart his career. Michael Wilkes became
then Yog Sothoth, for his passion of H.P. Lovecraft's works, and taken
back the keys and switches of his keyboards to compose a first drain
cleaning album for the ears (Prehistoric Dawn). Less hammering and
sharply more inspired by New Berlin School, "Dreams of Mystery" takes
back the first compositions of Michael Wilkes in a musical envelope
remixed in 2010. The result is a delicious mixture of Pyramid Peak and
Jean Michel Jarre with as background, a less sustained ardour of the
powerful Prehistoric Dawn.

Sharpened percussions to strikings falling with the regularity of a
metronome are opening "Tomb of Pacal (Chillout Mix)" which runs away
towards a suave cosmic down-tempo coated of foggy synth layers.
Fragile, the rhythm is delicately undulatory and beats a delicious
hypnotic measure which pounds under the waltzing layers of synth
filled by cosmic aromas and harmonies. These aromas are also nesting
on "The Mountains of Madness" whose tempo coos delicately on
percussions which roll such as a bed of balls before espousing a more
pulsating movement where sequences and jerky chords meet on a tune
slightly funky- cosmic. The harmonious envelope of synths reminds me
strangely the synth-pop approaches of Software. "Tribute to Axess"
(for Axel Stupplich) proposes a more dishevelled rhythmic. It's a
track strongly inspired by the repertoire of Axxess and of Pyramid
Peak with its crisscrossed sequences which shape a rhythm hiccupping
of controlled spasms and its fats resounding chords which wave under
synth solos brought out of Axess' studios. "Ancient Skies" adopts a
little the same paths with a rhythm which pulsates delicately and
buzzes under a synth with lines of angelic choirs and spectral
breezes. We are straight in the best era of the New Berlin School of
the Innovative Communication years. This is quite good. After the
cosmic funk of "A Peaceful Moment","Into Eternity" directs us a little
more into the loud rhythms of lead from Prehistoric Dawn with some
tsitt-tsitt cymbals which click in the furrows of heavy chords of
which the resonant outlines are ranting into the waltzing lines of a
synth to bluish colors.
"Belly Soundshapes" is a suave and lascivious funky- groove which
bends a slow rhythm beneath rippling synth layers which conceal chords
with paradisiacal sound ringings. The percussions are heavy, the bass
line moves are smooth and fats and a fine line of sequences, with keys
pounding with frenzy, are decorating a melodic pattern which extends
its voluptuosity with nice foggy synth solos, espousing marvellously
the slow melodious climb of "Belly Soundshapes"."Spirits of Atlantis"
is a great night-melody with crystal clear chords turning in a morphic
merry-go-round. Swirling in the trails of another line of chords to
pluckings of a misty guitar, these keys are tinting in a sky of starry
mist with fine dreamy solos of whistled singings. "Entropy" starts
again where "Belly Soundshapes" had stopped, but with a more fluid
rhythmic which is similar to free-jazz, while "Genetic Sequences"
dives back into the heavy rhythms but with a beautiful cosmic
orchestration which reflects Jean Michel Jarre's influences and his
Chronology era. "Galactic Voyage" negotiates its rhythm with
hyperactive bouncing sequences to land on a strong vertical gallop to
finally espouse a movement articulated by large waddle which are
jumping from a beat to another one under the aegis of a synth to
twisted solos and harmonious lines. The rhythm throbbing of its loud
chords which resound on a fluid static structure, "Quasar (Space
Version)" entails us right in the heart of Jarre's Revolutions era.
The percussions are effective and the synths are watering this catchy
rhythm with superb solos of which the appearances of psychedelic
guitars are caressed by a series of harmonious lines.

Far from being a subject of curiosity justified by the success of
Prehistoric Dawn, "Dreams of Mystery" is a very good CD-R that
deserves amply its place in the chronology of Yog Sothoth works. It's
an album where the New Berlin School style embraces shyly the fury of
Prehistoric Dawn by borrowing the rhythmic and harmonious bends of
Jarre on his Revolutions/Chronology eras. I quite liked it. There are
small pearls on it, of good rhythms (heavy as fluid) and beautiful
harmonies. What to ask furthermore when we like New Berlin School?

Parallel Worlds and Dave Bessell - Morphogenic (12860)
The universe of Parallel Worlds is as much disturbing and scheming
than enchanter. Now, imagined when annexed to a quarter of Node! It's
with Dave Bessell (Node) that Bakis Sirros has decided to push the 8th
chapter of Parallel Worlds towards even darker and more experimental
territories of an abstract EM to colors of a bewitching blackness.
Wandering between Arc, Ramp and Redshift, "Morphogenic" is a splendid
album of an empirical EM where the latent rhythms explode and implode
in surprising structures with fabulously rich colorful tones. The
riffs in it are loud and heavy, the ambiences are breathtaking and the
rhythms are of fire, moulding superb devilish melodies which dance
under intense orchestral sails of synths with musical visions affected
by bipolarity.

The first riffs of "Oblivion" fall with heaviness and crash. They cut
in a glaucous and surrealist ambience where ringings of bottles
forming stunning sound hoops moulded the shapes of chants with sordid
ghostly winds. The rhythm is heavy and unmoving, fed that he is by the
heavy reverberations of riffs which resound and make shake the walls
of a parallel universe where metallic stampings are whispering and
escaping to form a schemer gallop of which the black and abstract gait
is fainting little by little in the limbos of the rustles from beyond
the grave. And as the universe of Parallel Worlds is never in lack of
resources, an enchanting bed song for imps in glass clogs emerges from
this nest of colorful tones to sculpt an irresistible ear worm which
is perfectly suitable to the darkest of mephistophelic nightmares.
Molded in the same pattern of harmonious unreality, "Above the Snow"
extends its breaths of big threatening ocean liner on a river of green
mist. The musical envelope is as much sordid as it is melodic with
effects of musical slow motions of which the eroded outlines draw of
strange reverberating musical effects on a carpet of pulsatory
jingles. At first slow and oozing of infernal tones, the rhythm
bustles about with hesitation on the curves of a bass line of which
the slow nasal oscillations accompany the heavy and loud hammerings of
percussions. Strikings which pierce the opacity of a dense movement
soaked of metallic radioactivities which dance under the thick morphic
veils of an apocalyptic synth. These morphic veils which give a poetic
cachet to this other dark work of Parallel Worlds made the charms of
the grimy "Disorder" which is caressed by the brief intrusions of a
piano that is looking for its road of harmonies in a somber universe
of paranormal musical activities. And if you think that I exaggerate,
you have to hear "Inwards" to know of what is made "Morphogenic". This
track of ghostly atmospheres is to be disadvised if we swim fully in a
black night where the whispers feed the walls of a horrifying color of
flesh. See? Welcome to the inner dark world of "Morphogenic".
After an intro borrowed from the glaucous atmospheres of "Above the
Snow", "Denormal" struggles between an unchanging rhythm and its
metaphysical ambiences. Occult pulsations shape a feudal rhythm which
resounds under the lines of a synth to dark voices. A strange harmony
is taking shape behind this cabalistic pattern where the disordered
pulsations cogitate with of tremulous strikings of anorexic
percussions which get lost under the burning laments and riffs of a
guitar violent à la Robert Fripp, pushing the musical dialogue of
"Denormal" in the most somber hidden recesses of its
incomprehensibility; there where the rhythm and moods are switching
skins to become more black and incisive. The ambiences of "Corruption"
are feeding on the philosophy of "Denormal" but with a sharply more
experimental approach where Redshift and Ramp tear each other to
pieces into implosives lavas. One can't be closer of the deep darkness
and anti-music than with "Corruption", and this even if residues of
harmonies are floating there. The intro of "Heterodyne" brings us in
the gaps of a monasterial universe where the heavy and unsteady
reverberations get confused into the murky lamentations of possessed
soul. The rhythm is awakened by fragmentary approaches. Built on
palpitations which stamp of a virgin nervousness, it lives and dies
under diverse forms. Being cuddle by synths with lines subdivided in
their hollow and honeyed approaches, it beats of an uncertain measure
and prays for an ambient passage before running again on this unstable
musical area that is "Heterodyne". "Submerge" closes the storm with a
powerful immersive title where the rhythm is slow and molded in of
dense orchestrations of a synth which interlace its divinatory
harmonies and its spectral ambiences in a bewitching cocktail of shady
emotions. It's very beautiful, intensely melancholic and it concludes
marvellously this attractive odyssey into the mysterious universe of
Bakis Sirros' supernatural phantasma goria.

There are no doubts in my mind; "Morphogenic" is the best work of
Parallel Worlds. It's an intense album where black feelings feast in
parallel emotions. It's exactly the diapason of Bakis Sirros but with
a much more theatrical, even cinematographic, approach. It's like
inventing a new horror movie in each new listening. It's black. Very
black! But it's beautiful. It's very beautiful. In fact, we cannot
turn out the ear on an album which allies the sibylline rhythms of
Redshift and Arc, the audacity of Ramp and the unbearable world of
sound experiments of Parallel Worlds. Not to listen to if we are
afraid of the dark …
