Sobria Ebrietas - Lapses
Bertrand Barbier is the man hiding behind this French project. Active since the late 90s Sobria Ebrietas already has an impressive number of releases. A compilatin of these releases is now being released via the ON-Mix Media label.
It's called 'Lapses'.
Kicking of with dark ambient soundscapes and noise elements, you feel immediately imprisoned. He's using noise waves to create a burdensome atmosphere. This dominates the album in a perfect way.
It's rather an intelligent form of Noise where the dark ambient contributes to this overall feel.
