HYBRYDS-MUSIC FOR RITUALS, CD, 1992, BELGIUM







I'm not one to ordinarily fixate on the ritualistic trajectory of post-industrial praxis, but this Belgian crew pull off this often all too pat genre with real aplomb. All the expected ritualistic and ceremonial signifiers are at play here, as is the anticipated abundance of reverb that swaddles and swallows much of the proceedings and yet, despite all of that, the end result is a rich and evocative brew that manages to skirt across this potentially cliched territory without falling prey to obviousness; the best bits here possessing something of the humidly overgrown atmospherics of Randy Greif's work.

Nice!

I've heard only a couple of tracks from Hybryds, so this was more than welcomed. Thanks.

Music should be free?
As artist of these recordings I think it is not nice to put my music for free on the net. You could at least ask my permission.
