Seeing as how this album only has one review, I thought I'd throw a little bit of free advertising its way.

"Derelict World" is a dark-ambient album, and the entire thing is one big soundscape. The best thing to compare it to is probably the Robert Rich/Lustmord collaboration album, "Stalker". However, while Stalker's atmosphere is best described as "strange and eerie", Derelict World's is "strange, eerie, and bleak"; very, very bleak.

The concept seems to be a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The thing you'll most often hear (outside of the droning melodies) is water. After that would be wind effects, which go back and forth between sounding fairly realistic to morphing into almost ghost-like howls. There are countless other effects as well, but they're not as constant as these first two.

In a nice little arrangement, the album gets darker as it progresses; each track is more forboding than the last. This becomes much more obvious in the album's second half, and builds to a final haunting climax on track 8 (Sea of Oblivion).

The two best tracks are track 6 (Uncertain Shelter) and track 7 (A Sunken Dream). These two stand out from the album because False Mirror does some further experimentation with them. The concept around them is that the setting is now an interrior scene. Instead of being out in the middle of the wasteland, the listener is now inside a shelter of some kind. As before, the artist basically just uses the same two elements as before (water and wind), but muffles them in just the right way to effectively and believably convey the new setting. You really buy into the idea that your inside a building with a hostile environment just outside the door.

Although it's obviously more expensive, I recommend the CD over the MP3 download. Why?

At the beginning I must say that I normally prefer more ambient than dark ambient genre, but I was immediately hooked after seeing stunning artwork of "Derelict World" in one advertisement. Yes, the artwork is phenomenal, executed by UK photographer Steve Payne, 20-page booklet with a short story by journalist Bjørn Springorum and detailed notes on each of 8 tracks. All this packaged in luxurious six-panel digipak. And what about the music? Well, to say it straightly, it's as much amazing as the visuals, this sonic appocalypse left me immediately breathless!!! "Derelict World" is a true piece of art, both musically and visually, collector's dream. The mastermind of False Mirror, Tobias Hornberger, delivers on his 3rd full-length album absolutely exciting, intense, massive and immersive dark droning journey full of perfectly fitting and crystal clear sounding field recordings (creaking wooden floor or locker, old clockwork, various water sounds, some of them taken on the shores of my beloved Danube river...) and spiced by some occasional sounds of bells, chimes, gongs, flutes or custom-made metal didgeridoo. Every sound and every detail done on this album has its own purpose, everything is carefully and skillfully crafted and placed. Even if I am talking here about some ghostly and stormy appocalypse, this work is not as dark and other-worldly sounding as someone might expect from Malignant gang. Maybe I could mention here some ambient/dark ambient masters as comparison or influence, but it's not necessary, because Tobias is doing it his own way with all his perfectionism and he is heading to become one of them!!! And by the way, there are hidden on the album even some secret messages that will lead you to some bonus...Read more ›
