Solarus - _Empty Nature_
(Release, 1997)
by: Andrew Lewandowski (3 out of 10)
One perk of owning your very own record company is that you can release any mediocre album which features your participation. Bill Yurkiewicz, head honcho of Relapse, has exercised his right to release degenerate shit with the release of _Empty Nature_. While good ambient drills beneath your skin and good psychedelia completely alters your reality structure (see Gravitar or Flux), _EN_ accomplishes neither. Instead, Solarus replicate the art of nothingness; vacuous swirls of ambience and a repetitive beat inconspicuously fester for a few minutes before dissipating into the void in which they hardly arose from in the first place. Even the assistance of James Plotkin on guitars and production couldn't inject life into this travesty.
