She Silenced Seraphim
...through fragmentary dreams colliding with each other in fluid motion and perpetual entanglement, untouched by limitations of reason and translucid reality, and in pure images and remembrance of archaic past and arcane origins brought forth by sleep and spontaneously ephemeral aberration, I view her alien world -- she that silenced seraphim... dance your dirge ~~~ 6 ~~~ Some reviews of Communion Sss' 'she silenced seraphim' demos, released under the moniker 'more decay and violins': ...a fascinating release...something for just about everyone who's into gothic. Medieval instruments using churchbell type sounds, dark, brooding pieces with deep-voiced male vocals...this is an eclectic one. Something very interesting to pick up if you get the chance. - Industrial Nation #12 (USA) Incredible. Blackened atmospheric soundscapes of very impressive darkwave make up this tape. The music consists of deep emotional surges and brings forth a feeling of pure darkness. Imagine lying in a catacomb crawling with rats and filled with the stench of disease. This might be just one of the visions you experience when hearing this tape. ESSENTIAL. - The Ohm Clock #4 (USA) This Virginia based band has made a very impressive debut with this cassette. The music here is a clever blending of cyber-industrial vocals, electrogothic/doom synths, and some powerful orchestral elements. This reminds me in some slight ways of Memorandum or Autopsia although they're just a bit more night club oriented and theatrical than either of those bands. There are a lot of good songs here and I hope these guys get more attention. The cover art on this self-produced cassette suitably depicts a classical Grecian sculpture of a hero and his enemy broken beneath him. - Eskhatos #2 (USA) La premieres regroupe des compositions de More Decay And Violins (tout un programme...) qui, si l'on excepte "Eternal Betrayal",qu'on dirait sorti d'un film d'Argento, oscillent entre solennite tenebreuse aux poussees gothiques et crescendo de sueurs froides, avec plus d'intelligence que nombre des adeptes de ce style... Peut-etre est-ce du a l'absence quasi-totale de voix... En tout cas, on n'a pas l'impression d'errer dans un cimetiere de carton pate. - Concept (France) A fusion of medieval past and current experimental methods that may define and spearhead subcultural music of the distant future...neo-classical music that transcends traditions, reflecting unveiled aberration and surrealistic fragments of dreams in the process...this is she silenced seraphim...- Herald X.
