Any news on Xenomorph's new album "Netherverse"?


Recommended Posts

Xenomorph played a fantastic set at ZNA Gathering 2019 featured a lot of new tracks that are supposed to be part of a 2020 album.

Also there were some really nice unreleased tracks that should have been released (check out "Lilith" at 18:55)

No date/news yet, but he did write 2 new tracks for us on Suntrip :) And I can only say, he didnt lose his magic touch! <3 :)

 

Agreed I have enjoyed those tracks and those releases very much. I want to write a review of Carpe Noctem soon as it's a real treat for fans of the darker side of goa / forest psy / Schlabbaduerst sound.

Xenomorph has grown a lot on me over time, perhaps it's because he's never watered down or compromised his sound. Or perhaps because I really got into horror movies and literature. It gives you a thrill you don't get from other genres! Or I just learned to appreciate good production better these days. Even his earliest release Obscure Spectre / Telepathic Combat while obviously sounding dated still has a really well balanced and developed soundscape, the tracks are always twisting forwards and drawing you into Xenomorph's demented world.

From ZNA Gathering I really like "Sinister Contours", which appears to have more of a tech-trance progression, which I appreciate a lot for its hypnotic / meditative qualities (although I know not everyone does). At 13:33 it feels like a huge break is coming with a bassline flourish, but all it adds is a snare - you can see from the video how much Xenomorph enjoys unleashing the understated break which caught me by surprise as it's not typical for his music. Looks like Agneton lighting a cigarette in the foreground but probably not him lol. Then at 14:30 I'm not really sure how to describe what happens but it's wonderful, there's a transition that shuffles the sounds around and then a high-pitched goa-esque melody kicks in to finally fill up the high-end.

Actually it was Agneton on the front row :D I remember we were dancing together that morning. He is into all kinds of psychedelic music even if he makes only nitzhonot :D But you may have noticed in our Agnetoebis sets, we explore other territories of psychedelic and acidic music as well :)

Last but not least, yeah! The more reviews, the better, so I am looking forward to your review of Carpe Noctem :)

Apologies at bumping my own thread, but I also wonder whether Xenomorph's many VA singles will ever see re-release. There's some great work there, "Bizarre Temporary Dissociation" for instance which is better than any track on his Qlippoth album (imo) and was only released on one relatively obscure compilation!

Quite good - I only know the Cassandras Nightmare CD which I bought second hand years ago, it was sorted in the metal section as there is a deathmetal band with the same name :) I like the typical gothrock guitar in one of the tracks (fits better than a hardrock one for sure).

Some of his sounds reminds me on mine :lol:

Guess I also listened to another album on YT but was not so thrilled, however 2-3 tracks in this set seem to be better again :+1:
Edit, is "Sinister Contour" some kind of mix or cover ? I certainly remember this track but from another one...(or its just some overused arps lol)
