Müldeponie - Mülldeponie, or the Other Side of Darkness...
Dark Ambient, Drone I don't have much to say about this album, at least I don't have much to say good about it. Bad, on the other hand, I have plenty to go off on. However, Let me just introduce the French project that released this album, Müldeponie. Let's get started with talking about this album.

Alright, well, each one of the songs start off almost exactly the same; an eerie synth line comes in, very quiet at first start up, and then goes on to incorporate even more synth work into the songs. Now, while this may not be the worst way to start a song (Because many great songs have started off like this), it's still a horrible way to start off each of your songs on a four track release.

Another problem that I found within this drone/dark ambient project is that, well, I just could not really relax with any of the songs. And that is a huge downer for me; whenever I listen to a dark ambient album, or even the minimalist drone, for that matter, I absolutely hate if I can't relax to it. It's almost a requirement.

I also found the lack of differentiation within the album to be disturbing. Every song on the album has a different tone, but it sticks with that tone, and only that tone, and never tries to push its way past that. Take, for example "The Dark Side (Part 2)". Starting at the five minute mark, there's a synth line that comes in, takes a break, and then just keeps coming back for two minutes. You think that at points it's going to change up into something completely different, but that just doesn't happen.

Honestly, I find myself being a little bit horrified by this album, but not because I fear it, not because I find it disgusting to look at, but just because I know it exists. That is a bit of a harsh statement to be making, but I really just don't see why this ever came to be released; I don't like it much. And it's definitely not something I would recommend to anyone to listen to.

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.
