Disharmony - Malignant Shields
Dark Electro, Ambient Well what an adventure this has been! The album consists of sombre and light harsh vocals and synthetically altered vocals which entwine over an ambient and laidback industrial setting of tone and style. It is both calming and unnerving at the same time, something hard to pull off in music. Eerie.

The album descends you deep into the darkness with the first track "Confused", I felt as though I was lost but safe simultaneously, quite spooky. The second track "Drops of Dust" particularly demonstrates the strength of mixed vocals really well, a really mesmerizing piece. The whole 13 tracks contain instrumentals and vocal tracks set in perfect composition the complete darkness and tranquillity of it all. The track "Ridiculous" really took hold of me, there's something, I can't put my
finger on it but it's brilliant.

Every track has a special quality and it flows smoothly track by track, a certain vibe of something tribal echoes through too. Emotions are evoked through lyrics, tones of vocals and light use of sounds which ease the ears. 'Malignant Shields' is the album you will do some self-reflection to; take the time to think and ponder. Overall, it's a great album which I'm sure I'll return to again. The feeling that devours you whilst you listen is almost transcendent, I cannot stress enough how terrified and relaxed I was at the same time. The tracks are all beautiful, each showing strong, adventurous and bold but subtle blend experimental and ambient music whilst resonating a very vivid and solid dark Industrial sound. There isn't much I can say! The music speaks for itself in every way. Highly recommended for all, you simply must listen to this epic of an album!
