This work is crude, like a strange, shamanic-looking figure carved into a cave wall. It is vague, utilizing extremely short or limited phrases, creating a sense that the life and spirit of that unattainable fantasy is now but an incorporeal, transparent ghost, truly forgotten. There is little beauty or ugliness here, merely the shell of something that once might've been magnificent, now reduced to near-unrecognizable rubble. There is a hint of some ancient magic in this scattered, dusty debris, though it has long since been buried by the winds of time. Perhaps it is as some spot in an ancient desert, where the corners of several pillars are almost imperceptibly surfacing from the sands.
There is not too much I have to say about this work. It is quite primitive, however it feels like a very honest and genuine attempt at grasping that mysterious realm through music. In a way it might be an unpolished gem, but so unpolished that the gem lies deep within, with nothing but rock visible, surrounding it. If it is to be appreciated it would take quite some mental effort by the listener, I think perhaps a bit too much.
Now that said, this feels like an early effort, in the sense that I see definite sincerity in this work, which suggests great potential in the artist. I look forward to his future works, which I have a feeling will have more depth and beauty. Not that there is none to be found here. I think it's quite worth listening to, as really primitive dungeon synth has its own unique charm, allowing more room for the listener to explore his own fantasies, merely providing the seeds for the visions to grow in the dreamer's mind.
