Anatomia De Vanitats - The Anthropic Principle
Dark Ambient This is a side project from Eldar, and is reasonably decent. It comes off the label Cryo Chamber, a label infamous for releasing dark ambient projects here and there. And, this one is not so off beat and comes off nice, but does not really come close to being great.

I enjoy the tunes and the atmosphere, however, this is exactly the standard dark ambient material I am used to hearing by now. There needs to be more in order to stick out from the bunch of artists who also dedicate themselves to this music. I will not say that this is an easy task, as this music is limited in the sounds of what it can dedicate itself to, however, something has got to give.

Nonetheless, I still enjoyed it from start to finish. It's a nice, relaxing little product that plays very, very well off the atmosphere that it gives off. I can describe it as being in a desolate valley, or in the confines of space. It's fun to just sit here and imagine where I'd be when this music is playing.

And, so, with all that said, I admit that this is a good album. Not great, nor the best thing I've ever heard, but still listenable. I'll probably find myself listening to it again sometime soon.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
