To be released on August 23rd, 2k16 is Dr. NoiseM's new album "The CDr A-B-C: N", the next sequel in the ongoing alphabetized series on his very own imprint Dr. NoiseM tapes. After the extremly dark and even slightly threatening approach of its predecessor we see the new episode going back to calmer, not that frightening territories. Still on a very minimalist tip the 74 minutes of this album are still to be filed under the flag of Dark Ambient for sure but bring on a more relaxed feel that might be described best by the metaphor of a bleak sun rising over a fog-covered, but well scarred battlefield. These moments of peacefulness, just before the mist vanishes to unveil the gruesome remains of total hate and warfare are captured in the mood and atmosphere of this longplay piece in perfect fashion, providing an excellent mixture of quietude and simultaneously an unsettling feel of moribundity. Deep.
