In the Vortex of Dionysian Reality LP

by Anemone Tube




Related to Nietzsche`s notion of the Wagnerian music drama as a revelation of the abysmal truth about man, “In the Vortex of Dionysian Reality” allures us into the Dionysian dreamland, where tragedy reigns, in pursuit of the ultimate oneness. With its washes of noise and layers of piercing feedback on a subbase of wavering synths, it is a maelstrom of sound generating a hallucinatory reality. The atmosphere oscillates between destructiveness and aggravating frenzy, between the archaic and the sacral, between frenzied passion and abyssal melancholy, serving the mythical experience of music in a world where language has failed as a method of communication and music figures as the primordial form of expression.

As he considers humanities to have reached their limit, young Nietzsche hopes to find ultimate spiritualization and idealization in the reborn myth. Music alone (“our German masters”), as the primeval form of poetry and revelation of true Dionysian wisdom, may achieve triumph over the Apollonian shallow world of apparition.

With his timely musical rendition of mythical experience as “In the Vortex of Dionysian Reality”, Anemone Tube conveys an emotionally and mentally charged album which reveals his soft spot for progressive post rock metal acts like Amusement Parks On Fire, Blut Aus Nord or O.L.D. Their special approach of dreamy melodies vs. atonal, discordant sounds is skillfully recreated through polyphonic synths lines, which are then modulated into feedback and added for good measure.

Carrying the same title as the 2015 cassette EP release on The Epicurean, this CD with its 40+ minutes total length and five all new, yet unreleased tracks is less a mere re-release, but rather a full stand-alone album, featuring Ukrainian dark ambient artist Monocube on one track, as well as including sounds by Russian avantgardists Post Scriptvm and sound processing by French sound artist Pacific 231.

LP comes with different design than CD version and exclusive track “Tower of Evil (Sovereign Over All)”.

“Anemone Tube has been synonymous with the very highest quality of conceptually hyper charged drone ambient. In the Vortex of Dionysian Reality only adds more to this setting high of the bar to new standards of intensity and passionate processing of sound in supremely and astutely philosophical realms.” - Vital Weekly

“Some of Anemone Tube’s strongest work to date and yet another demonstration of his ability to create deeply evocative soundscapes built around melodious elements, sculpted field recordings and squalling feedback.” - Noise Receptor

“It is built with so many different tonal changes and distortions that no matter what you choose to get out of it, you will be able to experience something unique.” - Resounding Footsteps

“In The Vortex Of Dionysian Reality continues Anemone Tube's conceptually based sound explorations. (...) it's further proof, with the help of Post Scriptvm, Pacific 231 and Monocube, of Anemone Tube's ability to craft a deeply immersive sound from harmonic and melodic synths, carefully controlled discordancy, and field recordings. (...) Anemone Tube continue to craft something unique and complex from noise, ambient, industrial and sound art.” - Compulsion
