John 3:16 - Tempus Edax Rerum [Alrealon Musique 095 Promo]

Released on November 30th, 2k20 as a limited edition cassette tape album - and a digital version - via the highly experimental and avantgarde-focused label Alrealon Musique is "Tempus Edax Rerum", the latest album outing by Philippe Gerber under his artistic nom de guerre that is John 3:16. Split in five subsequently named parts and stretched out over a total running time of roughly 57 minutes - at least this goes for the promotional CD-r version we're dealing with here - we're drawn into a large scale cinematic realm of doomed Dark Ambient from the very beginning of the album onwards by droning electronic textures accompanied by what seem to be klaxon'esque, pitched down brass instruments sending their fanfares into a vantablack vortex, a neverending maelstrom of brooding intensity, whilst incorporating elements of (Neo)Cosmic / Synth / Berlin School vibes later only to drift into further Deep Listening Music studies as well as sequences of Tribal-infused Ritual Ambient and other Ambient-leaning goodness of the course of the albums entire runtime to provide a highly recommended musical trip into the deepest depths of your own inner consciousness.
