JOHN 3:16 are among the most powerful bands in dark ambient and drone music today. Philippe Gerber continues to amaze with his catalog, but this release is particularly special, as I never had the chance to delve into their early catalog.
This release combines the first two albums by the band onto one cassette. Both releases remind me not just of dark ambient music, but of the middle period post-Industrial and experimental music I grew up with.
Favorable is not a strong enough word to rank this release. It’s quite powerful.
