'Parallel' instantly hits with dubby reflective synth insistency. But the deeper you dive, the more you realise how much groove the drums carry as they switch and skip along with unrelenting pressure. The groove is extended by one of Germany's most respected longstanding pioneers Ray Kajioka who re-textures the riff with much more of a darker, grittier sound and thicker, grainier drums to incredible effect.
Deeper we dive again for two more examples of Victor's creative dexterity and sonic scope: "The Difference" is a rolling workout that ignites with a deep smouldering aesthetic before gradually adding layers of atmospheric pressure, percussive hypnosis and subtle cosmic touches while "Zenith" shows Calderone at his most cinematic. What begins as a classic foggy midnight graveyard stroll suddenly turns into something much more sparse, spiky and full suspense.
A dramatic way to end a far-reaching, full-vision EP. The journey doesn't stop here..
