Dotflac The remarkable trio formed for this project released with Possession a deep and uncompromising dark ambient work, approaching the limits of noise.

Guitars and strings collide and saturate, crawling to our ears like insidious insects, the destructive loops of sound kill the last rays of light and hope trying to desperately reach us.

The fourth piece almost reassured us in these darkness, to be better crushed in the stunning finale of this massive album.

A black rose, dangerously seducing. Favorite track: Wrath to Wraith.

Three sonic heavyweights have come together to compose the dark drone beauty Possession. Released in time for Valentine’s Day, this EP has no easy endings, only endless destructive cycles played out in a ruined universe. Inspired from the minds of US-based musicians Jason Corder (offthesky), Cody Yantis and Carl Ritger (Radere), they have birthed a doom drone space centric scape of obsession, madness and despair. From the gripping unfolding of the opening track Ascension, to the mind travel of A Viscous Tear and the majestic denouement of the 20 minute closing piece Wrath to Wraith, Possession will hold you in its chilly grip to the very end.



"The five pieces on Possession brood and creep through the shadows. Static threatens to take control, but the drones are stronger. The record is cohesive, and because of that it weighs a ton. There’s not really much respite once you’re in the midst of the music, so the intensity levels remain very high."



"The particular sound that has been chosen for Possession is very raw. The acoustic instruments manage to shine in the mix and color it with a primal feel, bringing a sense of realism to this work of art that inevitably becomes rather abstract. All other elements of the sound—synthesized drones or pads, field recordings, and all kinds of audio bits and pieces—are intelligently placed to become not just a mere decorative element within the music, but instead almost completely inseparable from its mechanics."


"Why make so much fuss about a sewn monolithic work of many latencies, electronic strangulation and rope hardened by icy winds? Maybe because more than any other, the ambient and / or experimental music energizes very personal contexts. And because this record, both in its great moments of torpor in his dazzling, beautifully accompanying certain visions of slow but dramatic drop of stagnant water vases rotten by black tea, bellies that bleed the call too small bodies covered with sparks." (Translated from French)



"Possession" faithfully embodies the imaginary in a sequence of five songs, culminating in the majestic symphony the twenty minute long "Wrath To Wraith" (translated from the original italian)
