Distorted Memory - The Eternal Return
Dark Electro, Witch House This is probably a review that should've been posted as soon as The Eternal Return was released by the fantastic Jeremy Pillipow from Distorted Memory. Honestly, the solo artist is remarkable for what he does; whether he's tackling tribal elements in Swallowing The Sun or heading straight forth into the mysticism of witchhouse (Temple Of The Black Star), the man can do everything and anything.

Now, he's onto a different path, shining the path with his latest release, The Eternal Return. Now, once more, as with this album, the artist has taken a new path, so you cannot expect a repeat of what he's already done. And, as a side rant, this is exactly what I love about artists like this. You never know what to expect next from them, and therefore they keep me hooked. Now, enough flattering remarks, and onto the music.

In The Heart Of Your Fire comes forth from the heavens and engulfs us in such a grand heat. It's one of the best openers to an album I've heard in quite a while. We are not treated with the distorted vocals that the artist usually delves out, but are rather given in a low growl that is oddly calming. The songs beats attribute reflections upon both witch house and dark electro, giving a very emotional impact onto the body. It is simply fantastic.

And, a lot of the songs continue one with this theme. Blending dark electro, witch house, and the low growling throughout. They are all very club worthy songs, and really hit you very nicely. And, being honest with both myself and you, the reader, I can say that I am very disappointed that I did not get around to listening to this album until just now.

Now, this is an album that you need to experience for yourself from start to finish, and for that reason, I do not wish to go into much further detail. This is a unique album, and one that is worthy of praise. I do not think that there is anything wrong with it, however, I also do not believe it is the grandest album I've ever listened to. It gets me moving a lot, and has me stirred while sitting, hypnotized in a sense, and therefore, I can easily give it a nine out of ten. So, cheers to Distorted Memory for continuing to kick ass in all ways, and delivering another solid release. There so far has not been an album of his that I've not enjoyed, and I doubt that will change anytime in the future.

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.
