Triangular Ascension - The Chronos Anomaly
Dark Ambient, Experimental Whenever I come home from a hard day's work of flipping burgers and serving up unhealthy food to unhealthy people, I like to forget that my daily life is miserable. I come to music to sooth me out, to help me relieve stress and think straight. I'm sure many people do that, and if you are one of those people, then please allow me to introduce you to the wonderful album called 'The Chronos Anomaly' by The Triangular Ascension. In every sense of the word, this album is astounding.

There are some songs on this dark ambient masterpiece that just sound completely enlightening, such as "Final Movement". With the light synths overtaking most of the song, followed by somberly happy guitar work towards the end, the song was inspiring. And then you have the darker songs, such as "Dream Devourer. That song reminds me of a nightmare; I envision walking down a dark, empty hallway where winds blow into your face from nowhere. And, as you continue down this dank hall, the walls around you start to fade away, only to reveal trees surrounding you; you are left cold and miserable alone with the sweet disparity of nature. And, if this song is powerful enough to make a poet out of me, than you should really see how you react to it.

What I also enjoyed about the album was how the titles of the tracks represent the songs like nothing I've ever listened to before. The one tune that really resonated this out of all the others was "Howling Earth". Just the dreary sound of nature flowing with the almost evil and tribal sounding noise within the song just spoke to me of a decaying Earth. Henceforth, a scream coming from a planet that's doomed to die.

And, well, there's a lot of praise for this album in this review, but it deserves it, I also loved how the album switches from being ambient and nature oriented, to a more slow electronic and experimental form. This is not a bad move at all; just take a look at "The Cleansing" and you'll understand. I can only describe the song as being an epiphany more than anything.

There's practically no room for me to complain here. At all. However, I still find that it isn't perfect; it sure as hell comes extremely close to being perfect in my mind, but it just doesn't quite hit the ceiling. Nonetheless, I still found 'The Chronos Anomaly' to be an absolutely gorgeous album, one that inspires you to meditate, and even journey across your own self image, and challenges you to take an adventure in the mind, body, and soul. And for an album to be able to do that is amazing. I applaud this album for everything it's worth, and I do recommend this to everyone and anyone.

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.
