Seven years have passed since we saw the last signs of life from this headstrong project - with 'Ten Hymns For Sorbetière...' Axiome
return triumphantly and unmistakably. C-drik Fermont
and Olivier Moreau
(imminent) present an aural landslide of amazingly dense sounds, heavy beats and menacing, freezing atmospheres, choosing coldness and ice as a central theme for the album.
Splicing genres like idm, acid, rhythm&noise, dark, brooding electro infusions and techstep to an insane hybrid, these 'Hymns' mark a perfect syncrisis of simplicity and complexity. Accelerated technoid rhythms are perfectly interfused with powerful percussion laced with hard, deftly sequenced melodic structures and combined with a retreat to insistent, repetitive analogue bubblebath-esque electronic textures. A mélange of force and beauty that is rarely matched by anyone else.Axiome
have always been uncompromising, surprising and incalculable throughout their existence - this album is no exception. Ten unique, intelligent and atmospheric soundtracks to the sentiments of a biting winter, but suitable for all seasons. so stop worrying and love the freezer!
