  • Despite that the production and music are both of good quality, everything on “Circumbaikal” seems too short. It is as if each track calls it quits before it really has a chance to get off the ground.

  • To be honest, if you’re not a fan of the style, this record will feel boring and empty. Even when compared to some other acts in the genre it’s fairly boring. However, it has that rare subtle, calculated brilliancy to it that only a few acts, such as Kammarheit or Tholen, can pull off: this is minimal dark ambient done properly.

  • The big question is if the release has the quality you expect, and the answer is that it even goes beyond your expectation. On two CDs a very good overview is created with several hard-to-find tracks as well as never-before-released outtakes from live performances.

  • After listening to this for a few minutes it is readily apparent that Rockdrill is a good fit at Cyclic Law. The vibe of the music recollects something perilously mysterious of deeply ancient and organic origin; I find myself constantly getting mental images of primordial human plight. Fans of industrial-tinged dark ambient (with a pinch of neofolk) should really like this one.

  • This tribute compilation gave eight Ukrainian sound artists the opportunity to freely represent their respective visions of Karol Szymanowski’s music, life and ideas. The result is a gorgeously packaged disc and twelve-page booklet. It is a collection for lovers of drones, glitch, noise and pure, eclectic experimentalism in sound – yet with strong classical nuances.
