Alienating, violent, sulphureous. Disturbing and unique experience, another hit scored by Eibon Records, another sublime disc of superfine quality.
First Human Ferro is an ambient project by russian Oleg Kolyada, which, on this occasion, uses the services of other artists as the composer of contemporary classical music, ukrainian Mykhayil A. Shukh, two female voices in the singing (Lyudmyla Voinarovska and the soprano Prudnikov Iryna), but especially the appropriate and valuable collaboration of japanese cyber-punk writer Kenji Siratori.
It’s very difficult to label records like this: it’s certainly limiting trying to categorize this product as a dark/ambient one as the willingness to dare and the tendency to explore in this case seems to know no barriers. The experimental ambient is dark, distorted and often results in power-noise drifts, then sinks back into an industrial maze with no way out. The reassuring calm transmitted by opera singers are the only illusory flares of light, then the thick smoke and the delirious hallucinations generated by twisted Gregorian chants return to tarnish the surrounding atmosphere.
The disturbed Siratori prose, surprisingly, peeps when you least expect it, confusing and throwing us in a world that is perfectly poised between post-nuclear environment, cyber delusions and industrial visions.
In a crowded horizon, once again Eibon, gives us the opportunity to meet another of his creations from the huge potential provided that you have the blood cold enough to turn off the lights of your room, put on headphones, and let your mind materialize underground power and lethal Adamnation.
If you dare, you won’t repent
