daskeye This album has such a haunting atmosphere that you will be instantly swallowed by the ancient Greek myths. The perfect combination of post apocalyptic ambient and industrial rhythms, that transcend through monsters and celestial creatures. A true masterpiece. Favorite track: Chimera.

about

Conjecture started in 2013 is the solo music project of the Greek Avant-Garde visual artist Vasilis Angelopoulos. His music roughly stays in a fixed musical pattern and is easily shifting between different genres and concepts. Using mostly hardware synthesizers, metal sheets, piezo microphones, DIY impulse responses "collected" from abandoned buildings, and tape-manipulation expresses his manifestos upon human existence, religious folklore stereotypes and transcendence
through archetypal rituals, body deconstruction, human subtraction and murder.

On his album for Zoharum, Angelopoulos pays homage to Greek mythology. Every track (and album itself) is titled after more or lesser known mythic creature and tells its own story. As expected, music is dark and sublime and production is perfectly executed - sound is crunchy and powerful. Tension is built from the very first and is being kept high until the last track which eases it off with soothing ambient, field recordings and... trumpet (seriously) giving this amazing album closure it deserves.

Greeks seem to have their own vision of ritual industrial music and they perfected it in an amazing way. Conjecture is no exception here. His take on the subject is mature and original and manifests in ruthless machine rhythms and cinematic storytelling that keeps you captivated from the very beginning to the very end.

CD edition of 300 copies comes in 6 panel digipack.
