"New Aeon Symbols V - The Pentagram" Reviews

Damned By Light did a review on New Aeon Symbols V - The Pentagram, a 2CD compilation Merankorii made part of. Here's what they said about Merankorii's track:
Merankorii's 11-minuter sounds like you accidentally dialed to hell and the connection is in bad condition. You know what those dial-up-sounds are like, right? It's like a broken synth. Notes similar to that are played in a steady pace but without any melody, while being backed by some thin gritty distortion is what you'll hear for seven minutes. After that, more distortion, echoing and noisiness kicks in to give the track more structure, but the overall distortion soon fades and the track comes to it's end just barely more noisy than it was in the beginning. It's a really interesting track despite it's few elements, and a daring one too. I don't know how soon the track will lose it's appeal due to it's mostly thin soundscape, but it's a good listen nonetheless.
Their conclusion and rating for the album:
I'd recommend this release for people who want a quick look at the darker and/or noisier arts, and for people with need for ritual music. 9/10
You can buy this album directly to the label.
