With an aesthetic that evokes the menacing soundscapes of vidnaObmana, Gas, and Lustmord, or the dark ambient delvings of Bill Laswell, Aseptic Void’s most recent album explores rumbling and sighing strains of delay-adjusted tones and unidentifiable samples.
The atmosphere is that of sitting in a cave and listening to the sounds echoing their way through the acoustics, so it benefits from the listener being in a receptive mood. Alternatively, it works as background noise to elevate tension.
Though the details can be subtle, audible care went into the sound-sculpting on the tracks; with more attention paid, more substance materializes, creating an effectively-scaling audio architecture. Carnal is finely-polished darkness; pick it up if you enjoy the sound of mechanical pulsations.
