Duncan Patterson decided to abandon ANTIMATTER too, subsequently to his departure from ANATHEMA a few years ago. His new project pendulates somewhere between Ambient, Gothic and Experimental, deeply absorbed within melancholia. Therefore, he has chosen some truly superb feminine voices from all over the world and with a simple orchestration and his own voice appearing now and then, Duncan succeeded into creating a tremendous album for the "Serenades" dreamers in a non Metal version! Plenty of influences are to be discovered, from Greece, Italy, all the way to Mexico or Argentina, but all in a frame highly strengthened by the specific Irish musical elements. Very Ethereal and romantic, this journey within Duncan's musical realm can solely induce relaxation, especially for the fact that along the specific instruments, harp, mandolin, percussions, flute and clarinet are to be found too. The album's drawback resides in the fact that it isn't a conceptual work but rather a sum of several tracks, gathered under the same CD. Anyway, it uncovers plenty of romanticism and opens the way towards utmost dreaming!
