Inade, i.e. the German duo of Rene Lehmann & Knut Enderlein, debuted in the
style of dark ambient music that was popular in the early 1990s with the
cassettes Schwerttau (1992) and Burning Flesh (1993 - Loki, 2000).
Their mature stage began with the "cosmic" concept
Aldebaran (Cold Spring, 1996), whose
electronic poems (each one followed by a sort of complementary
untitled piece) actually lean towards industrial music.
The gargantuan shifting winds of Signals From 68 Dimensions becomes
a swarm of hostile alien organisms.
The steady loop of Signals From 68 Dimensions II depicts hell's factory, an update of Throbbing Gristle's death factory.
The bubbling The Conquest Of Being Separated is harrowing enough, but the
buzzing and drilling apocalypse of The Conquest Of Being Separated II
pushes the horror one level up (perhaps the peak of pathos).
The pulsing The Crushing Of Earthly Foundations turns into a
satanic pow-wow in which an operatic choir gets mercilessly mauled, and
The Crushing Of Earthly Foundations II revisits hell's factory in
an orgy of hissing machines and wailing souls.
The heavy breathing of The End Of The Beginning
becomes a giant tide.
The End Of The Beginning II superimposes a monster drone and a distorted
recitation, and the two swallow each other.
The alter-egos tend to be harsher and bleaker than the titled pieces.
If the title pieces refer to the present, their alter-egos might be
projecting that present to the future.
The mid-length pieces of
The Crackling Of The Anonymous (2001).
were so unstable that they seemed to
paint with sound the different stages of neurosis.
The confused vocabulary of Eternity's Crevice sounds like the soundtrack
of a traumatic experience. In Chapel Perilious the free-form noises
border on musique concrete and industrial music.
The Engine Of Space crafts gothic metaphors out of macabre thuds and
The best moments sound like an audio shock therapy, but too many sections are
aimless and trivial.
Colliding Dimensions (2005) collects recordings from 1995 to 2002.
Samadhi State (2006) contains remixes of recordings from 2001-2002.
The more mature
The Incarnation of the Solar Architects (Loki, 2009) explored a vast
range of settings, from the
turbulent cacophony of From The Angle Of Aleph
to the distant radio messages of Aion Teleos.
The Engine Of The Mind
swirling menacing drones, the symphonic gravity and the scattered clangors of
Klaus Schulze's Irrlicht;
but the sophisticated
rustling electronics and "running" percussion;
while the free-form
A Lefthanded Sign
evokes sideral whistles, dripping stardust and supernova birthpangs in the cosmic void.
The three dimensions (evocative, tonal and psychological)
perpetuate themselves via (respectively)
the smooth Altar To The Unknown,
the harsh The World Behind The World,
the busy Canon Of Proportion.
