Xenomorph - "Qlippoth" Review.

Had this cd for 24 hours, had about 4-5 listens... is best on a stereo with very good bass... very chaotic sounds, and lots of horror movie samples, exactly what you expect from Xenomorph... if you have Ritual Dance compilation you know what to expect as Tree Of Death is already on that... and I think if you like Sandman's first two albums you'd enjoy this... good with the lights off... and track five has a really cool change of pace about halfway... if you want something different then grab it ;)

Yeah if you want something chaotic and a bit experimental it is good, a nice change from every day generic psy trance, not that that is bad stuff but... I"ll warn that the first track is kinda slow and the last one is very downtempo...

Basilisk : you have done great job :) first i was thinking how you dare to try to review such a jewel, which is self explanatory by its music itself :) very good review.

I didn't quite liked the album. Yes, he has his unique style but the production is really bad. I didn't expect that from person that is in the scene since 1997. This album sounds way too random and pretty minimal. I only like 3 songs : THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM, ANTIMATTER, QLIPPOTH...Rest didn't grab me or even turn me off, which is rarely with intelligent trance. This album might be intelligent in the way he uses sounds but the structure is way too minimal and at a lot of stages pretty monotonous. I wouldn't call this album a jewel, it is ceratinly more innovative than heaps of full on releases but this idea and vision should have been presented in a better way. There are heaps of boring samples from the movies. If the production was better and if the level of twistedness reached incredible than just twisted as a sake of twisted, this album would be great, but it tends to loose somewhere in between and completely turns to sound degenarate...6/10

The only track by Xenomorph I liked for quite a long time was Neurotoxin. But when I listened to Tzelmavet for the first time I understood that I had missed something in his music. I rediscovered Cassandra's Nightmare as one of the all-time gems and Qlippoth as one of the best releases after the millenium... Tzelmavet & Antimatter are the great tracks!

 

P.S.: I also appreciate Mark Petrick made everything for his latest album by himself, even the cover graphics.

Xenmorph is for those interested in exploring the quality "EVIL/DARK-SIDE of psytrance.

 

This album is EVIL, and in a good way too I suppose!, heh

 

There are several great tracks, and if you're into HORROR, DARK psytrance, not simply "Dark" psytrance, you'll probably find this and Xenomorphs - Cassandra's Nightmare some of the best horror psytrance albums, and there isn't that much competition out there but I really feel that Xenomorph is the best artist who currently produces and creates EVIL-DARK psytrance.

 

This album defines what evil, dark psytrance is ... its dark melodies and tunes are so catchy at times, and I wish their were more great tracks, versus the several disappointing, so-so, and fairly good ones. I'd be more specific but I think Seraph pretty much layed out the better tracks on the album. I'd have to hear it again regarding lack of better production.

 

This second main Xenomorph album I feel is more mature than Cassandra's Nightmare, which has grown on me because of its unique sound and sometimes that album sounds insane!, amnd in a creative, imaginative way!

 

I feel that this is some of the very best HORROR-EVIL dark psytrance I've heard so far, a sub-genra that seems so rare, and even more rare for an artist to make great tracks with.

 

Overall, I really liked Xenomorph - Qlippoth and I hope the next release is better too!

 

Also, those into evil, dark... check out the psytrance comp: There Is No Tomorrow.

Any news on a third, main album from Xenomorph???

 

I wonder how long before another main release.

 

The time between his first album and the second was close to 3 or 4 years I think!

alot of these tracks names have a meaning in hebrew.

for example:

qlipoth- shels

Tzelmavet- shadow of death

Gehinom- Hell

Shaari Abadon- gates of doom
