ennek "The Antediluvian Soldier" reveals his creed’s deepest heirloom. Initially hazed out, this wide-screen environment plays out like a dark micro science-fantasy audiomovie assembled through lulling horns, wandering electronic pulses, machine clatter and decontextualized dialogue snippets. This all forms a vague impression of some kind of free-falling paleo-industrial collapse loosely bound together for the listener through ‘The Antediluvian Soldier’s’ salvaged black box of a previous civilization. Water churning, shifting walls of muddy sounds, and a mysterious synthesizer melody leads us to gaze into ‘The Moon Pool’ and look at the reflection of it all. What’s left of a succession of human kind’s poor choices? We are only offered a small glimpse into this world slowly crumbling into a thousand pieces before taking the ‘The Ichthyocentaur’s Leap’ into a primitive rhythmic return to where it all started.
