The main members of Dream Into Dust have been involved in a number of other projects in the dark music underground since the mid-90's. Thee Majesty (the spoken word/soundscape project of Psychic TV/Throbbing Gristle founder Genesis P-orridge), A Murder of Angels (dark ambient), 4th Sign of the Apocalypse (quirky, sample-heavy electronica), Of Unknown Origin (old-school industrial noise) and Loretta's Doll (progressive experimental goth) have kept Derek Rush and Bryin Dall busy with multiple releases and compilation tracks, gaining them respect and recognition in this strange corner of the music world.
Of all these projects, Dream Into Dust is perhaps the most eclectic, having covered all the styles the others have, and adding the element of sometime pop accessibility. However, rather than sounding like a collection of various artists, the band has maintained a focus in their sound and evolved with each release.
2 Exclusive tracks:
Salvation's Corridor - slow heavy industrial rhythms ominous low piano and strange gurgling sounds intermittent grinding guitar noises and bizarre effects.
Crystal Mirrors - acoustic guitar viola sparse percussion and shimmering electronics two different takes on transformation.
An ephemeral transition point between past and future.
Both songs feature experimental guitar by Bryin Dall. The visuals were created from photos taken by bandleader Derek Rush at The Cloisters in New York City.
Quote from Athnr site : The first full lenght release by french formation Les Sentiers Conflictuels after two vynil releases.
On this cinematographic album, Andrew King reads the strange letters signed Jack the Ripper Scotland Yards received in late 1888 on a disturbing neoclassical soundtrack with some cold foggy drones and sounds of archive (mechanical noises, operettes and old cylinders samples). A dark journey into the wet sinuous streets of Whitechapel, London 1888...
In some aspects, this release reminds the collaboration between Blood Axis and LJDLP both in style and intensity. Limited edition 3 pannel digipack.
