Elysium Eliminated - Ominous Nature
Dark Ambient, Drone There are lots of drones to be found on this release from Danish musician and artist in general, Elysium Eliminated. And, by a lot of drones, I do mean a lot. If this were a film, I think I'd name it Star Wars Episode 2: The Drone Wars. Nonetheless, let's talk of the music, and the album, not called what I suggested but rather titled, Ominous Nature.

Each song is titled after a Roman numeral going from I all the way to VI. So, so long as you can count to the number six, you shouldn't get all too lost in this release. It's hard to say much about this release, in all honesty, as each track is filled with drones, that don't sound that great as the quality is shit, and that's all there is to it, really.

III, for example, had the potential to sound amazing, but it dove under real fast with horrid sounds. Though i much enjoy the sounds of nature, be it peaceful or spooky, this album had me running away from nature and running into the hardcore chemical vats of industrial corporations. I think that would provide a bit more entertainment than this album.

And it's not necessarily that the drones are bad, or even that the musician is bad, it's just the quality of the work that needs to be improved. Add in a few more effects here and there, get the songs properly mastered, and you'd have a better album. But, as of right now, I can't recommend this album to anyone I know; unless, of course, I have a deep hatred for them. Then I'll send them this way.

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.
