Dahlia's Tear :: Under Seven Skies CD Review
"...Dahlia’s Tear music is within the dark ambient genre, though his music is noticeably far more harmonious and generally more dynamic, fascinating and varied than your typical dark droning ambient band, which are nearly a dime a dozen these days. The music has a very strong dreamy and otherworldly quality to it which allows the listener to pass into a realm of unknown thoughts and visions which may very well elude them when not listening to music like this. This is truly a great album to listen to while lying in bed since personally I’ve had some very interesting thoughts and dreams pass through my brain while under the influence of Dahlia’s Tear songs.
It’s interesting since the music is more than just lush melodic synthesizers; Dahlia’s Tear music also features distorted electric guitars in the background, industrial characteristics, sampled voices, female and male chanting, treated field recordings, piano and some well placed subtle beats too. I also love the way the music carries a very cold atmosphere to it and even though it’s fairly hot outside today I still feel a slight chill as a listen to this album and occasionally notice the hairs on my arms standing on end too. Wonderful.
Additionally the album comes packaged in a sharp looking digipak with wonderful artwork too. If you have any love for dark melodic ambient music then this is surely not one to miss as its absolutely fantastic for its entire forty eight minute duration.
