After two strong EPs on Traumatic, Australian producer Hypoxic delivers four tracks that will give the Dark. Descent. following the creeps: Encountering his very unique, maverick doomcore sound, it comes as no surprise he hails from Perth, known as one of the most isolated major cities in the world.
DD13079 starts with "Sombre", a perfectly self-referential title for a soundtrack-ish tune with lush piano lines, followed by the equally introvert, but considerably darker " A Forest". Hypoxic also sees to the physical aspects of his art with the crushing industrial beats of "You are not alone" and the irresistible EBM-style saw tooth sounds of "Nothingness". "Alone in the Forest" works as perfect background music for reading Thoreau just as well as on the underground dance floor.
