Grave Concerns Ezine review of Open Aeon

August 6, 2007

Sydney, Australia's Empty offer up a tempting EP sure to please fans of darker, more atmospheric EBM. While it's hardly ambient music, this CD is better suited to listening at home than stomping the dance floor; "Ghost Beside You" opens things with moody processed vocals and brooding synthesizers, and while "Blue" features crunchy beats, the emphasis is more on wispy vocals than club rhythms. EBM DJs need not fret, however, since Angel Theory provides a hard-stomping EBM remix of "Blue" that's a bit more geared to the dance floor. This is good stuff, especially suited to fans of early Dismantled and Front Line Assembly; hopefully we'll get a full-length album from these guys sooner rather than later. - Matthew Johnson

The new album "Surfacing" is now available

Empty - Surfacing

A breath of badly needed fresh air.

- Rick Gallo (Arable Farmland - Chicago, USA)

Complex and melodic, with an underlying current of desperation.

- Charles Fenech (ANGELTHEORY - Melbourne, Australia)
