"it felt like i was pulled through dimensions and worlds unknown, somewhere far beyond names and forms, regressing beyond what i understood to be my absolute point of origin. while floating weightlessly amidst the dark ether, the remaining fragments of my psyche were being humbled by their own insignificance as the vastness of the void started to make me grasp, for the very first time, the true meaning of infinity." (iszoloscope)
yann faussurier's work can be defined as a combination of dark fearful ambient soundscapes and heavy rhythmic beat assaults. some of iszoloscope's releases, f.e. 'aquifére' and 'les gorges des limbes', are located in the 'ambient' sector, while albums like 'coagulating wreckage' and 'au seuil du nèant' also target the rhythmic region.
on 'the audient void', yann takes the 'au seuil du néant's concept one step further. there was once a more strict separation of ambient spheres and hard beats but now there are eight tracks which have to be heard as a whole unit. the straight rhythms and mighty pulsing basses are fully embedded inside the soundtrackish tunes and haunting voice samples - sounds emerge, pump, disappear and re-appear - all of which raises the speed from track to track into a raging climax that finally discards.
an ultimate listening experience for industrial enthusiasts - highly recommended.

If you're a Justin Broadrick fan or possibly a huge fan of the album Pure you'd be silly to pass on this album. Feels like a blend of Godflesh, Jesu, and JK Flesh. Justin is a musical genius shinmegamitensei
