With The Hermits new album everything is about the number 4: the fourelements fire water earth air each represented through fourtracks on an album that closes with Abyss a mystical final track andpsychedelic ambient journey into nowhere. The 16 tracks leading up tothis finale expose The Hermits trademark sound consisting of darkpostindustrial EBM references early rave memories and contemplativesynth improvisations a hybrid which reminds not least of the legendaryAnalogue Bubblebathseries. But something is different this time:without any doubt Liber 4 comes across as the most mature piece ofwork in The Hermits oeuvre so far. While his earlier works often had asketchy appeal to them apparently struggling to focus on one of themany ideas The Hermit brought to the table his new tracks demonstrate amuch more confident drive towards a singular goal for each of the highlydiverse tracks which finally are spelled out in all consequence untilthe very end. A track like Hermaphrodit would have suited the likes ofRobert Gorl and Gabi Delgado There Is sounds like the early AFXsharing a cigarette with Front 242 in a chillout room somewhere duringthe 90s while the scifi ambient funk of Equation reminds of thelikes of Kenny Larkin. The Hermits works always used to be very diverse and mindblowinglyfull of ideas. Whats new here: each and every idea gets the space itdeserves and is spelled out to perfection. "The most beautiful and deepest experience a man can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the underlying principle of religion as well as of all serious endeavour in art and science. He who never had this experience seems to me if not dead then at least blind. To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is a something that our minds cannot grasp whose beauty and sublimely reaches us only indirectly: this is religiousness. In this sense I am religious. To me it suffices to wonder at these secrets and to attempt humbly to grasp with my mind a mere image of the lofty structure of all there is.
