CHRISTIAN COSMOS - THE SHARP LINES THAT DELINEATE HIS ROBES (12")


"In parallel to his Vatican Shadow project, Christian Cosmos has emerged as one of Dominick Fernow's most compelling monikers. The third transmission from his Bed Of Nails imprint yields four intensely gloomy stations in this mode, revolving around a cryptic, as-yet-unresolved agenda borrowing from industrial techno, petrifying synth soundtrack elements and meditative noise clangour with a rudimentary but deeply affective gnosticism. He engages with glowering clarity on 'The Angular Positions of His Father' where sorrowful strings sweep a desolate, martial drum trill and bass drones that liquify at our feet. 'The Angular Positions Of His Ghost' follows, engaging a dread-filled atmosphere with stone-cutting drum machine patterns and guilty synth noise. ''The Angular Positions of His Crown' is possibly the most potent, cold striking the same nerve left raw by his most chilling Vatican Shadow moments, while 'The Angular Positions of His Cross' leaves us hanging in looped torpor, sounding like Muslimgauze having a crisis of faith."
