Olekranon returns with the album Bilal. The album is similar to their last album, Identi, a mix of Dark Industrial and Experimental. Static, feedback loops, heavy drum machines and creepy “vocals” dominate this album. However, like Identi, the tracks have a certain tempo to them. There are beats mired in this bleak musical landscape, something to help you keep a steady pace while you run away from the menacing creatures that are chasing you (think Silent Hill). Olekranon has again provided an album that is dark and abrasive yet has a certain sinister smoothness that will lure you into it’s lair. The future of Dark Industrial looks grim and I can’t wait to hear more.
