Kevin : Rarely has a cd managed to drag me along in a musical trance like this album by Frozen Ocean.
‘The Dyson Swarm’ is a unique trip through the cold universe. Frozen Ocean is the work of a guy calling himself Vaarwel. The music is based on black metal but it reminds me more of a mixture of Burzum`s keyboard work and Massive Attack. Trip hop rhythms are draped with space sounds and keys that are reminiscent of Burzum`s prison albums. I really cannot think of any other band that sounds like this, Frozen Ocean is truly unique in every way. This is music that demands you to close your eyes take hallucinogenic drugs and let yourself be swept away to the far regions of the cosmos. The landscape is unreal, inhuman and of an incomprehensible beauty, but also cold, deathlike and desolate.
