This is the third Vindicatrix release on Mordant Music following somewhat of a silence for a couple of years. This chaps stuff I would say is definitely an acquired taste. His Scott Walker alike vocal stylings I struggle with if I’m being honest but the music he creates in fantastic, dark and brooding electronic music which fits nicely into the house of Mordant.
When there are quite a few effects on the vocals I find them easier to digest. His style is very distinctive and I certainly can’t think of another artist that makes music like this these days although Phil has piped up that one track reminds him of Einsturzende Neubauten which I reckon is a fair comparison. There’s an awful lot to digest across both slabs of vinyl and I’m given the feeling that this one will really reward over repeated listens.
There are a few little elements that even recall Coil in some ways which can never be a bad thing. If you’ve enjoyed his previous records then I’m certain ‘Mengamuk’ will provide similar dark pleasures. It’s always refreshing to hear artists that plough their own path with disregard for whatever current trends may be happening in music. Will defo have to give this one another spin.
