Patrick James Slattery, BMI(100.00%)
Composer Patrick James Slattery brings haunting, intense soundscapes and his gothic, artful style full force on Dark Dimensions Vol 5. Metallic clangs and bass notes are manipulated to create wicked, evil atmospheres that are deftly colored with dark, ebbing synths and effected rhythms. Dig the intense "Alley Rat", the effected noises open with a thunderous clang but the ringing echoes Fade to a claustrophobic hum. In "Druk Gyalpo", percussion and flute add an exotic edge to the dark underpinnings. "Reliquary" is a cinematic, simmering groove that beats underneath a humid, worldly mix of chanted male vocals, flute and and dusty synths. The great production of the intense, dynamic music adds an edgy sheen. Dark Dimensons Vol 5 is a trove of wicked atmospheres sure to add depth and drama to any production.
