Editorial Reviews

Review

"ANTIMATTER have crafted a powerfully rich and haunting album of ambient dark rock." -- ApeShit.org

"the best part is that they are completely original." -- MetalJudgement.com

"…very soothing and relaxing and it truly takes me to another state of mind." -- UltimateMetal.com

Product Description

Antimatter formed in 1998 when Duncan Patterson (ex Anathema) and longtime friend Michael Moss joined forces in creating music that was abridged by many different sounds/styles. With the release of their 2002 debut for The End Records, Saviour, Antimatter showcased a dark/ambient/dub vibe that was mesmerizing, truly capturing the spirit of exploration in music. Praised by fans and critics worldwide, it was obvious Antimatter was onto something very special. 9 total tracks. End Records. 2005.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is much different from the first two Antimatter albums. Instead of being mostly electronic and slightly pop-like sound, this album is much, much more minimalist, and EXTREMELY depressing. I know every reviewer has said that but, obviously it is true. It is instantly is the saddest music I have ever heard, surpassing My Dying Bride / Silver Mount Zion which I previously proclaimed as the most depressing music I've ever heard. Everything from the vocals, melodies and lyrics just all come together beautifully but at the same time crushingly painful. There is also a little violin and piano added to flourish up the album... like flowers at a funeral. Extremely sad music doesn't mean I'm an extremely sad person, but I like my music brimming with the deepest of emotions, weather that be adrenaline-pumping death metal... the most joyful symphonies, or ...something like this.

This album is also quite different from the first two because about half the songs are just acoustic guitar and Mick Moss' singing. The songs directly alternate between the female vocalists with minimalist keyboards, and acoustic songs with Mick Moss' vocals. The two different style songs were actually recorded in different places and a few months apart. I like the electronic style but I have to say I like the simple, yet gorgeous acoustic playing a bit better. I am a huge fan of folk-noir already, and these are some of the best songs of that style I've heard. The female vocals are so disheartening, they sound almost suicidal, and coated with a thick layer of echoes to emphasize it and add that haunting atmosphere even more. I like the way they've alternated between both style songs like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete Sadness January 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is the ultimate saddest album I think I own. I can barely listen to it without tearing up inside. All acoustic with tragic notes that cannot help but bring about the most depressed state in the listener. Download the full version of Legions from The End Records to see for yourself. If you are looking for a haunting, mellow listen this album is most likely what you need. Don't let my words about this album being bleak discourage you though because even though the album is one the saddest albums I have, it is also one of the most beautiful. Addictingly beautiful. The tones on this album are so pure and full that they bring forth an honesty that propels the emotional element of the album further and further. If you like mellow sad music then this album is for you. Crushingly amazing work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Most depressing album of the year. August 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I love this album. It's very sparse and acoustic (the Mick Moss tracks at least.) There is a great cover of Trouble's Mr. White, taken to new depths of sorrow and doom. If you need an album to listen to while at your lowest, this is it. Duncan Patterson left the band after the recording of this, but judging from the strength of the Mick Moss penned tracks the band will carry on with no problems. Half of the tracks here are written and performed by Duncan, and the other half by Mick. So, fans of Duncan's work in Anathema will be pleased, and hopefully like Mick's songs just as much if not more. Highlights include "The Weight of the World," "Mr White" and "A Portrait of the Young Man as an Artist."

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Ambience April 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Another great piece of music created by Antimatter. It starts off with great piano piece, that instantly captures your attention and then evolves into main part of the album, dark acoustic rock. My favorite aspect of this album are the beautiful vocals. The vocals(which include female vocals) are sad, deep and haunting. This goes well with the simple acoustic guitars and the few other instuments. This creates a dark ambient/acoustic atmosphere that few bands can match. If you want depressing music, you have found it.

Nothing else needs to be said, except that you need to buy this album, it is something you will not regret.

5.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic melody of the highest order. November 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Antimatter "Planetary Confinement" is a great piece of emotional bleak music. I first head the track "Legions" from the End Records website. I was drawn in and wanted to hear more. The song started with a nice acoustic riff but no elements of folk just sorrow filled strumming. The album follows with this same atmosphere through out never speeding the pace or abandoning this realm for happier passages. The lead vocalist for this album is male but a couple of songs have a female vocal in the mix. This album contains an array of soft subtle textured beats.

I think this album was worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's somewhere hidden from view. December 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of the bests I've ever bought, it contains everything a good band can ask for, some awesome music arrangements and excelent lyrics. This cd is also well balanced because of the spliting sesions from Mick and Duncan, their both great. If you like to hear some brilliant musicians don't hesitate in buying this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Melancholy anyone? March 7, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'm probably going to end up repeating what the other reviewers here have said. This album, from the minimalistic piano intro "Planetary Confinement" to the drone ending of "Eternity Part 24", never strikes a single happy note. Mick Moss and Duncan Patterson have managed to pen some incredibly beautiful melodies that are only enhanced by an all-acoustic delivery and some haunting female vocals. Standout tracks are "Legions", "The Weight Of The World" and "Line Of Fire"; however, the quality of the record is consistently high. If you like melancholic, sad music, this is a must-have. Antimatter's previous works ("Saviour" and "Lights Out") are also worth checking out if you don't mind a more electronic approach to the same sort of concept. Highly recommended.
