A barely lucid drifting trip through... somewhere...

"I think it hits you somewhere around the middle of Dreamcatcher, that the sound starts to wrap around you. The noise is barely familiar. Like listening to lost radio tranmissions finally arriving, scarred and unrecognizeable. Well, you can hear some lucidity... voices struggling to be recognized in the abyss. And it just starts.
Soul Catcher sinks even further into the depths. Long stretches of heavily echoed reverbed noise drawn into slow pulses, with ancient melodies and song trapped just below.
The next 3 tracks form one twisting, lurching, crunching nightmare. Of the three, "Powerlang" stands out the most. The weird harmonica line that struggles under the static almost gives a hint of a tune being played. Until it's all ruined of course, just destroyed in a gamma ray burst of remote noise.
All of this leads to the subterranean blur of Vuls. It starts as just such a simple drone, but the noise and, um, dead voices on air, i guess, start slowly funneling in. This stops being music, and more of a recording of a certain place in time. It all becomes too real. This is the sound of evil lurking in the alleys. This is the sound of the silence of the night.
If anything, it's probably one of the most unique ambient albums ever made. Not recommended for softies."

"Sonically this is a cross between How Hollow Heart and Shap. That is to say, the ambience is sort of bizarre and abrasive, but the tracks are long and there is an engrossing epic quality to the album as a whole. A good disc to pick up if you're interested in ambience that's a little more complex and inventive than your typical droney synth fare."
Quite a journey

"this is usually my favorite D.V.O.A. release, next to PISS FROND. the first track is a nearly 20 min. masterpiece of noisy, shifting, very dense, ambience. the second track, as well as the last, are in a similar vien, though only about half the length. tracks 3-5 are much shorter industrial/noise pieces, with special guest cevin Key. highly recommended."
