Time between releases has been
well spent, with the new material taking the early template and expounding upon
it greatly, adding layers of industrial churn and structure to the infernal
kosmische sprawl they're so adept at creating.
And yet throughout its entirety, "Between the Horizon and the Abyss" is remarkably polished and fluid.
Within its realm, no seconds feel wasted, and every sound feels purposefully placed, even as it moves and flows in perpetual motion; strains of a distant angelic choirs fall beneath a complex array of arcing tones, liquidous, molten textures, & harrowing orchestral shimmer, with fervent masses of malevolent atmospherics billowing forth in glorious detail.
While this technically falls under the banner of dark ambient, what Yen Pox has managed to create goes far beyond genre specifications and boundaries, crafting a new benchmark and adding a high water mark to an already stellar discography.
