Cold, Ambient, Industrial, Black, Symphonic, Noise, Electro: take the decision to dive in the mourning embrace of this Polish hostile vampyria and enjoy your nightmare experience. The Cyclothymic Panopticon unleashes the esoptric Hades you wished to come true..and now is. HESPERUS DIMENSION solves the differential equation of 'cinema post-Black' math and dissolves lunar strain into merciless hunting. The magma is ready to consume.
The second EP from this trio (enriched by a set of relative session players) can push the band to a higher status, provided you'll let your mental serenity enter this non-stop chase where you're both the hunter and the victim; HESPERUS DIMENSION just provides the soundtrack to your apocalypse. Blast-electro-beats and repetitive grooves will initially betray your metallic dogmas, but - as soon as the haunting goes on - the hedonism will grow bigger and this sinful lust will vanquish your conservative ideals. Nahald is a maestro in giving symphony to twisted forms while Czarny has the knowledge of how to rule the ruins of human fracture at first sight. The silent parts as as loud as the post-Black ones (if not more demolishing) and the songwriting proves to be 'case one' for HESPERUS DIMENSION's 'future tense' ambience straight form the guts of 'cuber' Hell.
THORNS, DHG, ARCTURUS, (late) EMPEROR/ZYKLON and FLEURETY provides the 'metallic' relevance whereas 'the other side' (Industrial, Ambient, Noise) donates equal - if not more - (rest in) pieces. The time the current Black Metal style is considered to be old-school, te same time releases like The Cyclothymic Panopticon will be awarded. Taste the sin, glimpse the orgy, bathe the avant-garde cinematic strain and - most of all - give HESPERUS DIMENSION a full change if (only) Black Metal's too 'same ol' song 'n' dance' kinda thing.
All the above, 'backed' with a hunting production...
P.S.: Yes, Faust is the Faust.
