DEMEN – ” Nektyr “

Tags: , , ,

This is a debut album which is alive with confidence and well judged minimalism.  Its dream doom. when your soul is a cloud that is slowly crushed into a million soft pieces, but those pieces are delicate and tragically exquisite.There are definite moments, such as on the romantic swirl of “Niorum” or the grandiose high church atmosphere of “IIIdrop,” where you may be reminded of Dead Can Dance or This Mortal Coil. And yet the album places Orm’s impressive and evocative vocals amid shifting soundscapes which are equally haunted by the ghosts of trip hop, Industrial and dub. An album which is gothic in the true sense – without being Goth – Nektyr resists clichés, to present the sound of one woman’s finely honed vision.   This haunting music creates its own nighttime, its own stars
