CONTINUUM
Continuum 2

[Solielmoon Recordings, www.soleilmoon.com]

Continuum is a collective name for two musicians - Steven Wilson and VidnaObmana [Dirk Serries]. On their second album as a duo, they ensure that all hell literally breaks loose. At least on the first track, that seems to be the case. Electric and bass guitars, drones and hefty amounts of processing are used to such an extent that ones ear drums pop out of their sockets. By the time we get to "Construct V", the duo begins to work with great subtlety. Instead of the most grueling exercise of audio torture that they used on the first track, here they mellow and begin to use each instrument for the greatest amount of effect. By this point, the music sounds as if recorded in a desolate dungeon. Off-putting vocals are whispered constantly, while drones swirl your head in a furious clock-wise direction. As the piece builds up, so does the drone. Guitars become more intense and the whole thing reaches a most profound climax. Brutally great audio experiment, packaged in a gorgeously presented DVD box. Limited quantities on this one, which means you should get a copy before this release show up on e-bay at some ridiculous price.
