2. vidnaObmana's anticipated Legacy CD (Relapse Records) - now available !
Is vidnaObmana's closing chapter in his critically acclaimed but challenging Dante trilogy for the Relapse Records label. While the trilogy plays with the duality of choices, parallel to the epic Dante poem - covering the conflict of opposites, between good and evil, black and white - equals vidnaObmana's personal longing for an artistic and creative change in pace, profile and style. Towards his 20th anniversary as vidnaObmana, his drive to expand the music in style from ambient to a wider fusion of genres intensifies with Legacy.
The album marks vidnaObmana's wilful decision not only to expand his oeuvre, upgrade his own experience as a musician but also link and blend his wide interest in different music styles with what he covered musically in the past.Legacy brings forward a fusion of industrial, ambient, fourth world and even some post-rock elements, performed on electric guitars, overtone flutes and an array of electronic devices. This new album also features some unique guestappearances. Local Belgian blues musicians Paul Van Den Berg and Tex deliver recycling sources on electric guitar and bass, and photographer Martina Verhoeven contributes her voice for treatments.
Singer/guitarist Steve Von Till from Neurosis and Neurot Recordings portrays the Dante poem with his distinctive deep and pure voice while Steven Wilson, originator and leader of Porcupine Tree, performs a haunting and thematic electric guitar session (and his longest guitarsolo's in years) to conclude the trilogy.
The participation and support of Steve Von Till and Steven Wilson solidifies vidna's fascination and constant progress into different musical terrain.
