Ninth Desert - Different trouble experiences of Twilight [Afe Records - 2007]

This offers up five bone chilling, shudder making, creepy but your not quite sure why, Dark ambient/ edgy sound worlds. Each track seems to slide and creep its way out of your speakers, its shadowy form almost taking shape ready to pounce, but then falls away once more

You see real fear is not seeing the monster or the gore, real fear it’s not quite knowing what it is and that feeling of deep down fear in your very guts. And this managers that edginess wondeful through out, never showing you fully the monster face, spilled entrails or battered flesh. You just see flashes, or edges of the real monster and it’s after math.

Ninth Desert is Frenchmans Cyril Herry new project, in the past he’s also been known as Ashes To Ashes, Sechres Mound (a duo in collaboration with Toy Bizarre), Lecanora and Exotoendo. You can clearly hear Herry has great understanding of sound textures, how to construct them and how to time there entry and exit perfectly. This was all recorded  mostly at nighttime and over summer 2005/ 2006. The most rewarding thing here is your not exactly sure what he’s using to make the grey and dread soak sound scapes, at times it could be guitar or electronics or manipulated sound sources. It just seems very oil,organic and black as tar, like just catching the smell of decay on the wind.

A very rewarding excise in audio tension and fear- it’s just such a pity it’s only ltd to an hundred copies. So act quickly and take big slice of nightmare pie from here.
