Death industrial with power electronics bite. Psychological uneasiness and angst. A slow hypnotic, lyrical and invasive album with arresting, cold and isolated atmosphere. Minimal instrumentation. Synths, drum machine, feedback and effected vox hold wake throughout five compositions. Overall signature is slow rhythmic progressions with sparse, seductive and intrusive vocals. The compositions are experienced as dense, but yet open. The suggestive feel of the recordings insinuate a gradual audial arrestation via measured rhythmic carpet bombing and claustrophobic tangent meditations. In the most knee bent introspective moments induced, a sense of embedded contagious mental illness lurks. Production wise the frequency register and audial space is utilized close to its fullest spectrum. Skilled post-production with mid/late ’90s cassette reverberations. In total: Ivory Prince is an eminently articulated and coherent record. A dense, captivating, uneasy, minimal affair with vision and scope that comes highly recommended. Credit to labels Angoisse and Total Black for continuing their strain of quality releases. Nocturnal winter seclusion.
