Release date: 06th June 2006.  Label: Multi National Desaster and deafborn records.

Building on the experimentations from their debut CD (with a mix of field-recordings, guitars, electronically manipulated sounds and spoken word fragments), Melanchoholics walk new paths by exploring several acoustic instruments (such as cello and accordion) and add various sources for drones to their gloomy mélange.

Drone Records.
   ... The result is a brilliant recording of dark and weird ambiances with a strong melancholic feeling and a post rock touch. Sad like a rainy day...

Vital Weeky 530    ...The cross-over between ambient and industrial has been made before, by many (Illusion Of Safety's during the late 80s period spring to mind here), but Melanchoholics translate the sound pretty well to a new millennium.  

 

   

Malignant Records  ... Eyes closed and ears open, this circles the body in gentle, abstract patterns, before periodically nudging you with spikes of guitar melodies, disembodied voices, and deep, droning reverberations. I like this more every time I listen to it...   

   

Phosphor Magazine  ...Very well done by Melanchoholics. Those that like the sombre artwork will not be disappointed by the music...  

 

   

Ikonen Magazin  ...Even ‘spoiled’ ambient freaks should try out this album...  

 

   

Black Magazin  ...A really bad trip through dark spheres without any clichees at all...  

 

   

Sonic Seducer  ...it carries a strict anti-life-attitude. You’ll defnetly  forget your sunblocker when listening to this album!...  

 

    Real Art Magazine  ...Despising the term “post-fate”, I would name this music "hypnotic surf for self-murderers"...

Bad Alchemy 51  ...bei allem drohenden und nihilistischen Geflüster, Manifeste einer anderen Seligkeit, einer Seligkeit unter dem Zeichen des Saturn, der Seligkeit, die in Sehnsucht, Wehmut, Trübsal mitschwingt...

 

   

Ikonen Magazin  ... Selbst verwöhnten Ambientfreaks ist der frische Sound der Melanchoholics eindringlich zu empfehlen...

 

   

Black Magazin 44
Ein wirklich beängstigender Trip in dunkle Gefilde ohne die üblichen Klischees...

Ein absolut passendes Artwork rundet diese Ausnahmeveröffentlichung ab...

 

   

Sonic Seducer  ... Von Melancholie möchte man hier lieber nicht sprechen; viel trefflicher von konsequenter Verweigerungshaltung gegenüber jeglicher Lebensbejahung...

 

   

Auf Abwegen #36 ... Absolute Schwärze spricht aus diesem Album, die greifbare Entseelung dieser Welt; der einzigen, von der wir gesicherte Kenntnis haben...
