Being a fan of Randal's Cryo Chamber releases, picking up this discography was an easy choice.
I'm attracted to his sound, where he uses an occult-like approach to paint cold futuristic landscapes. I often get the feeling I'm being shown a much distant and mechanical future, but I'm viewing it through the lens of an oracle from an ancient civilization. Its not an easy experience to put into words, but just know you will be left quite intrigued after hearing his works. Bruce Moallem
