The swiss “shoegazers” Last Leaf Down return with their second album and are delivering an overwhelming soundscape of dark and atmospheric melodies. Their previous work Fake Lights was released in 2014 through Lifeforce Records. The soft guitars, the dreamy atmosphere and the whispering voice were the main characteristics of this release. Nevertheless in Bright Wide Colder we can appreciate an evolution of their sound, sometimes unclassifiable, but certainly we can notice many different elements like shoegaze, post rock, gothic rock or even metal. Last Leaf Down perform this amazing mix like you won't hear it by any other band.

Back in November last year, the first single called “The Path” was released, deploying a completely new musical universe with a vast number of different guitar sounds, drum rhythms and new vocal tones. At that time, I had the feeling that something bigger would come and I was right because we are in front of one of the best albums released in the last couple of years. The production on Bright Wide Colder is gorgeous, the sound quality is amazing and the musical richness is incomparable. The more you listen to this album, the more you discover new details.

It’s so very addictive, believe me that you won’t stop listening to this masterpiece so easily, and after a while you'll gonna need your daily dose of their music. It’s difficult to point out at any song above the rest but “Suspire” is the perfection made song, it has a dreamy atmosphere driven by awesome guitars, magnificent drums and epic voice. “Not The Same” is another unforgettable song, again the guitars build an impressive wall of sound. “Dust” is yet another example of what this band is capable to do. No matter what music style is your favorite, Last Leaf Down should take part of your music library, they offer us one of the best guitar driven experiences we can find out there.

Band: Atrium Carceri
Album title: Metropolis
Release date: 9 June 2015
Label: Cryo Chamber

Metropolis is above all a very dark meditative journey, locked out from the illusion and takes place entirely in our former home within darkened sky and gargantuan citadels where the man once ruled as gods. Metropolis is in strong connection with the previous proper album The Untold which was released in 2013 and with which Simon took us to the origins, to the primordial metropolis and into the void where the creator abandoned us. The new epic output follows the expedition to uncover the truth about the factions in control, what happened to the long lost architect and how to open a portal back into the colorful illusion the ignorant call home. Metropolis is one of those climaxes of everything taged dark ambient. This time Simon went quite out of the genre borders and created such a stunning work of art that will leave a deep mark within the scene. With such compositions where the attention for details is essential, where subtle layers offer an otherworldy experience, yet everything is well produced and comes with a very nice artwork and just calls for many repetitions. Metropolis is a prime example how to make dark ambient music flowing and melodic, strenuous and adventurous, strong, lush and emotional, almost solemn in its very essence.
