DARSOMBRA
Ecdysis

[At a Loss Recordings, www.atalossrecordings.com]

Darsombra is basically one Brian Daniloski [who happens to be a member of Meatjack] who has just issued his dark, somber debut full-length "Ecdysis". You can tell where this guy gets his inspiration. Right from the start you feel Earth's presence, as his dissonant, slimy chords slowly churn in your brain. Overpowering percussion [which is used sparsely] only exhilarates the effect as these instrumentals seem to take on a new light. On "Drag The Carcass", Brian spits out some bile underneath a delicate wall of thick guitar drone, while "Swelter" is an exercise in solo guitar picking, all done in very controlled fashion. My only disappointment remains in the fact that these pieces could have been much longer, thus adding an even more dire element to the gloomy ambience that's laid out. More atmospheric than it is power-hungry, "Ecdysis" is an amicable debut from the darker side of hell.
