Miracle Of Love - You will Be Free
It´s summertime, love is in the air and people are happy in the warm sunlight. But every now and then thundering lightning and pouring rain will come down after a hot season. Miracle Of Love (in that sense) works with a sensation of physical relief, I am talking about masturbation (Or am I?) no ... I am talking about how one will physically feel when the rain and the thunder come down... after a VERY hot day!
The act-name Miracle Of Love (plus the album title) looks like a new Swans-related/side-project release, I don´t think that the act-name hails from the hit-single by Eurythmics. Although I can assure that it doesn't sound like Swans, or Eurythmics for that matter!. Primal and heavy industrial-ambiance would be my words for it, somewhere along the line between the mid-era neo-classical ambiance of Raison d´être (Empty Hollow Unfolds) and the harsh monotonic death-industrial sounds from Megaptera. In other words, this act which hails from Rome sounds more like an early Swedish CMI-act then an Italian one (And there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING wrong about that. Limited released as a BEAUTIFUL (and completely black) CD inserted in a nifty slip-cover (See below). I don´t know how limited it is since I cannot locate the info regarding the exact number of releases pressed. Either way, better be quick than slow with this one. You can find it via the label´s Bandcamp site (Also see below).
The release/album and the sounds kind of works in the same fashion as when our favorite Cenobite speaks the immortal words ´Angels to some, devils to others´. It contains beautiful almost angelic synth-ambient melancholic-moments and then next you are deliberately thrown into a cage with venomous snakes!
But still, the concept of the soundtrack/mood maintain its chosen aesthetic. You will encounter distorted guitar-loops, angelic/orthodox choirs, machine room-sounds, whispering voices, proto dungeon-synth melodies, harsh noise-aggression, even beautiful acoustic guitar moments. All of this being perfectly packed in that classic industrial-ambient/ritual-industrial sound-setting!
From start to finish, it is a fantastic and terrifying journey... and yes!... It will set you free! All the highly individual tracks have all been crafted beautifully together to create this magnificent soundtrack. A 2019 must!
