This is another review of a recording from Vanessa Van Basten where he takes covers of Cure songs and adds in elements of post rock, doom metal and shoegaze with the ep being called 'Disintregration" and released by Taxi Driver Records.
A very atmospheric ambient sound starts off the ep and a few seconds later doom metal guitars and dream pop style synths are added onto the recording and you can hear a lot of post rock element s in the cleaner sections of the music which also mix in with the heavier parts at times and when vocals are added into the music they are sung in a clean direction.
You can hear the heaviness of doom metal in the songs while the song s still have the pop and 80's elements of the earlier versions and all of the songs stick to a very slow yet dark musical direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the last track being very long and epic in length.
Vanessa Van Basten takes the songs from the Cure and adds in the heaviness of doom metal to make the songs sound like his own, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover depressive, philosophical and poetic themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Vanessa Van Basten and if you are a fan of The Cure or post doom metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Plainbong" and "Fashination Trip". 8 out of 10.
