4.0 excellentBrandon E.L. Magnuson | November 15th 09

Creepy, scary, direful, disturbing, eerie, frightening, ghoulish, gruesome, hair-raising, itching, macabre, menacing, nightmarish, ominous, shuddersome, sinister, terrifying, threatening, weird. All words that can be used to describe this piece of art. In L'Autopsie Phenomenale De Dieu minimalist composer Kreng incorporates some of the creepiest samples and sounds you'll hear and creates a record like non other this year. Think of that really pretentious art film you watched that massively dug into your head and then you realized that it pwned. Hard.


4.0 excellentAdam Downer EMERITUS | July 11th 09

There's something really, really unnerving about Kreng. His first official release, L'Autopsie Phenomenale De Dieu, can be considered a masterpiece, a chore, or just creepy as all hell. The most likely reactions will probably be the first and third choices. Kreng is an ambient artist who experiments in jazz and classical while interspersing devastatingly unsettling samples between tense and dark music. Kreng's willingness to allow silence and static to create a definitive atmosphere recalls Godspeed You! Black Emperor circa F#A# (Infinity), and Kreng's expert use of melodies and dissonance is as impressive as it is disturbing. It's a record that needs to be heard for itself, preferably while alone in a dark, quiet room. For one of those "transport-you-to-another-place" records, L'Autopsie Phenomenale De Dieu should fit the bill perfectly.
