Here are two new releases from the project, issued at the same time, but on differing formats. On the aesthetic front, it appears the group have evolved towards a more occult focus as evidenced by both by titles and the darker, yawning, black noise tinged dark ambient sound. Although all generally dark and brooding in sonic texture, there is a myriad of musical angles on display; some being staunchly dark ambient, whilst others having a doom drone frame of reference due to the use of guitars both distorted and clean depending on the track.
A crumbling, distorted rumble which underpins many pieces indicates a rougher edge to proceedings; yet depth and space is also evident within the drone framework, thus providing a broadly expansive and enveloping tone.
Although Fall of Nature was effectively silent during , is off to a strong start with a swag of new releases; two of which are reviewed below. The first cassette is a split between the ritual dark ambient Funerary Call and the harsh noise Crown of Bone, whilst the second tape is a re-release from an obscure UK death industrial project Trauma. Both releases are slickly presented, including professionally pressed and printed cassettes and J cards, which is noteworthy given the small editions of each.
All in all a solid two track offering from Funerary Call. Nevertheless Crown of Bone deliver two lengthy tracks of grim static and blasting back noise which effectively combine to form a single cassette side track. As such a sustained mid-range distortion is coupled with lower bass rumble, whilst vocals of a grim black metal rasp can be detected semi-buried within the mix.
Mid-way through their side of the tape the blasting wall of mid-range static sheds back into the mix, again with the grim static shredded vocalizations. As such the material is sparsely constructed, where there is definite room to breathe between sonic elements, including loose looped mechanical rhythms, clinical toned drones, throbbing textures etc.
A slow and controlled pacing across the 8 tracks is also a clear hallmark, where each piece averages a length between minutes. Occasional dialogue samples are utilized to compliment the basic medical themes, whilst there is also definite affinity with the sound and visual aesthetic of early Slaughter Productions releases. Clearly Fall of Nature should be commended for excavating this from the underground to give the project some greater spotlight and evidently new material from Trauma will be released on Fall of Nature will be issued in future, so something to look out for.

A Cautionary Tale Peter Kim - Amalgam Wicked Messenger - Dreamer Redeemer Plague Recordings: Plague 'Dreamer Redeemer' is a continuation and a further development of what was achieved with 'Officium Nocturnum': an exploration of the realms where the within and the without coincide.
The album consists of two extended pieces 23 and 30 minutes, respectively and an interlude. At times, this is expansive and sprawling, other times it turns inward, becoming ominous and foreboding, with nightmarish textures, ghostly resonance, and hazy, dreamlike swirls co-mingling with ritualistic, occult atmospheres. P Lovecraft.
These two new offerings both serve as a portal into a poisoned mind, filled with images of unnameable horror. Dark ambient noise collides with black static transmissions from unknown planes.
Cavernous droning atmospheres painting images of hopeless dread. Subtle Death Industrial loops collide like the tectonic plates of a Black Earth. Dense hypnotic darkness with a unique organic edge. That being said, it most certainly will go down as one of their more stunning, darker visions; a masterpiece of shadowy atmospheres and drifting currents, featuring multiple layers of archaic sounds, foggy, nebulous textures, and ritual invocations, perfectly combined to form a release of intense depth and complexity.
Must certainly rank among the finest dark ambient records released in the history of Malignant. Should be bigger on the DM scene!! Neil Grace. Graves of Ceaseless Death by Ruinous. Cavernous, riff-centric death metal of traditional composition and very slick and modern production.
Goes mostly at breakneck speed with some doom touches here and there. One hell of a good ride Peter Rabbit. Echoes Of Dismemberment by Scorched.
A new compilation series featuring cat-loving metal bands from every state donating their tracks for local animal welfare organizations. Two death metal legends unite for a once-in-a-lifetime LP; rife with classic appeal and flavor, it's a manifesto that works in any era. Master Boot Record fires up a monstrously-efficient assembly line, powered by industrial, synth-wave, and hardcore techno. Here its sonic tapestry is multi-faceted and all encompassing, where layer upon layer of dense drones fold in on themselves; combining, fracturing and radiating out again with renewed strength.
Given the vast variation in tonal quality and instrumentation used; far from being passive listening, this demands full engagement and presents a massive constantly churning mass of sound. That failing has been rectified here, where the artwork is superb in evoking a sense of monolithic scale and awe through complex geometric patterns and a stand of ominous monoliths.Wilt – From Depths Profound And Inconceivable CD Fall of Nature Wilt – A Daemonic Alteration MC Fall of Nature Wilt are a project I was vaguely aware of in the early ’s but dropped off my radar for whatever reason, but if remembering correctly the project focused on experimental dark ambient with a slightly noisier slant.
