Raison d'Être - _In Sadness, Silence and Solitude_
(Cold Meat Industries, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
I never really know how to review releases from Cold Meat Industry. Almost all the music I have ever heard from this label has been brilliant (i.e. Arcana or Puissance) yet very similar ambient music. The label's latest release by Raison D'Etre is a wonderful trip into the wonderfully surreal and haunting world of dark ambient music. Six songs structured around a truly eerie backdrop of odd dreamscapes painted black and overflowing with emotional discharge. As with many other CMI releases, this release has a cathartic effect, which seems to be the winning factor for most CMI releases. Raison D'Etre is a wonderful kaleidoscope of emotion, darkness, and understanding. This is one release you should scope out to find, for the experience will affect you in many ways.
