Ignis Divine is a dark and ambient project. The very first thing to learn of it how strange and unexpected sounds can create dweary atmospheres. A feeling of being in church, with a sort of preaching that does not always come as a pleasant feeling into the sound, but rather scarifying.
Eight tracks of sounds that are sometimes mellow and positive but have a negative side as well. A dream goes bad, your imagination takes you on a high trip to nowhere land. The strongest points of this project come from the fact that the music seems to be quite spacey. It has a lot of mystic in it and goes deep. Emotional and dramatic lanes pass by on each other and therefore create the tension that keeps you listening longer. It is perhaps a bit more accessible than Gate The Void, which released an album on the same label. Also, the title gives a brilliant description of what to expect from this release.
Overall the album is quite artsy and filmic. Could have been used for some dramatic film serie or just for an evening in which you let your emotions follow the lead of the music. Surprisingly nice!
