wicked messenger - The River Disappeared Sidewards
**A free live recording is available from the label: (http://plaguerecordings.bandcamp.com/album/the-haarlem-concert)** Let's get straight to the heart of the matter and point out that Wicked Messenger is a dark ambient project - a very dark ambient project as it happens. The River Disappeared Sidewards is the limited edition debut album from German composer/producer Martin Kranzel, and it's just the thing to immerse yourself in as the nights draw longer and the clocks go back. The tone is creepy from the get-go - the album shuffling into life via the percolating metallic tension of 'The Centipede'. From here onwards an upsurge in coarser, more distorted tones rises up through the rancorous 'Transition' and 'Candles & Knives'. The album seems to plunge you into ever darkening corners through each passing moment, and certainly by the time you arrive at 'Dealing With Ghosts' you'll find yourself confronted with some of the bleakest, groaning textures this side of a KTL record. Perhaps the most wholeheartedly sinister thing here though is 'Burning Of The Seed', whose distant clanking, fearsome plunging bass and incantatory voices mark the apex of Wicked Messenger's devilish craft.
