Harmonic Cross are a band from Virginia that plays a mixture of ethereal and ambient and this is a review of their 2015 album "It Is Finished" which was released by Magic Bullet Records.
An almost quiet sound starts off the album before evolving into more of a dark ambient soundscape along with clean guitars that also bring in a touch of post rock and the music can also get very experimental and avant garde at times and after awhile the synths give the music more of a haunting and ethereal atmosphere.
All of the tracks are done in an instrumental direction while a great amount of diversity can be heard throughout the recording and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses drones can also be heard in some of the songs along with soem field recordings.
Harmonic Cross moves away from the hardcore punk and indie rock the members play in their other bands and focus more on an ethereal style of ambient with this project, the production sounds very dark and powerful while the music is a soundtrack for the true crime event refered to as 'The Somerton Man'.
In my opinion Harmonic Cross are a very great sounding mixture of ethereal and ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "MLIAOI" and "TAMAN SHUD". 8 out of 10.
