Boomkat Product Review:
Some imaginative sci-fi fuelled electronics here from Nottingham-based duo Kingsley Ravenscroft and Alec Bowman who have fashioned a collection of dark soundscapes accompanied by snippets of apocalyptic text, creating a distinctly dystopian War Of The Worlds-type atmosphere. The album always sounds like it's on the verge of coming out with some Autechre-style beats (clearly a heavy influence on the duo) but instead much of the content of the album is more in the domain of abstraction, and although rhythmic patterns and squawking percussion do rise from the sonic rubble, nothing so straight forward as a defined beat ever really materialises. Instead you get the sporadic pulses and insectile scrabbling of 'Nest 4 (A New City)' and the bleak industrial futurism of 'In The Kingdom Of The Electronic Eye'. A densely atmospheric collection of tracks, Icons For A New Religion is that rarest of things: a modern concept album which is seemingly entirely comfortable with being just that.
