3 stars A darker shade but not that original.

Rapoon aka Robin Storey´s latest sonic experiment "Dark Zero", 2015, is focused entirely on the well known Dark Ambient tagging, which obviously refers to strange and sometimes unmelodical environments as they are also the perfect playground for "obscure" ritualistics or not that friendly musical meditations.

Having said that, the project itself falls short more than once. Maybe the fact that prog electronic´s darker epitome of this kind of language, Lustmord has kind of "trademarked" lots of sonic environments and added up his satanic love to such an extent, that some of these Rapoon´s experiments feel kind of innocent or still on the making.

Great moments but also unimpressive ones. Like a Rapoon returns to Zoviet France (of which he was one of its original members), but as to start from scratch, which in paper may sound interesting, but I mean scratch, primitive 70´s electronics scratch, which by musical evolution itself, sounds outdated in comparison to more experienced works in those DARK fields.

Sadly, worth the trip but not exactly a keeper, meaning good but not enough.

***3 PA stars.
