Album Review: SYNEK – Paradiba EP

Paradiba EP is a short and sweet preview of the foreboding world where SYNEK resides. Consisting of two original songs and one remix, it catapults us on a dark and menacing descent into blackness. The first track, “Fathom”, is a slightly disturbed symphony of industrial sounds saturated by metallic reverberations. They unceasingly bounce off each other until they crash into a point directly in the center of the tunnel we are falling through. The tunnel presumably leads to the center of the Earth but we have no way of knowing. It is simply constant darkness and a lifetime of plummeting.

“Paradiba” is a 13 minute minimalist measurement of atmospheric pressure that lifts us out of the tunnel into the light radiating from above and further. We continue to rise and gently float in space toward a set destination far beyond the galaxy’s horizon. Off in the distance sharp screeches of painful echoes can be heard, though they are not threatening. They still send a shiver down the spine as they inject a fearful strength into your nerves.

The third track is a remix of “Fathom” done very well, with layers of punchy noise strangling the dense clanking echoes into a beautiful and harrowing drone series. It captures the essence of a deranged descent into madness whilst creating a dreamy atmosphere that comforts the tortured mind.

This debut is an excellent starting point for such dark atmospheres. Hopefully we will see more from this artist very soon.
