ANTIMATTER: "Lights out"      antimatter                prophecy  productions                    

 


review  by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____   

 

To describe an album so far from metal in our website is something exciting! From a particular band like this, you may feel new sensations, new emotions...and Antimatter will lead you in a such different dimension...where the darkness reigns as well as  the suffered romaticism and the passion for acoustic dimension.....
This album is a masterpiece, but it doesn't match  everybody's taste...it depends from the different points of view, it won't be for a defender or a punk-fan if you're waiting the winter solstice...the music proposed   in this album will make a very good impression on you! A darkwave masterpiece yes,  but not only!!! I may notice many influences, and, in my opinion, this cd could be perfect for all dark souls.
Michele gets an ethereal voice, being able to enter into your soul in a delicate way...the sound of the band is rich in  loops and deep keyboards, in order to create a dreamin' atmosphere!
The title track seems a musical  background  for a film: here keyboards and piano create a very dark atmosphere and  Michele's voice seems like the one of a fallen angel into an obscure theatre of pain..."Everything you know" is sung by Mick Moss and it reminds me of  the  latest Anathema compositions; an acoustic dark song,  in which appears also a old style dark piano!
The album is as deep as dark, and the musicians gets a very depressive taste...try to listen "Terminal" a sad celtic composition in which the darkness meets the passion ...a song that bring us to old times.....!!!!
"Dream" is an ethereal pop ...a very different song in which Antimatter sounds similar to the latest THE GATHERING albums, concerning the arrangement as well.
"Reality Clash" is another romantic dark song ...very suitable for a film that reproduces scenes of an old storic memory! A dark atmosphere involves all the songs...No metal, no rock...but  this is the art of romantic darkness! A special cd to be listened in silence ......
Buy or die (for darkwave fans)!
