Jordan Vauvert Archimetrical Universe sert à définitivement couper le cordon : avec ce deuxième album, Atomine Elektrine acquiert sa propre identité, une qui n'a plus rien à voir ni de près ni de loin avec raison d'être ; les ambiances religieuses disparaissent et on entre dans un monde d'electronica futuriste et ambiante. Grâce à ses quatre phases, Archimetrical Universe nous propulse dans des sphères spatiales toujours plus hautes et abstraites. Très novateur quand on se rappelle qu'il est sorti en 1999 ! Favorite track: Tithonium Chasma.

Eternal Pride Prod. presents restored, re-recorded version of "Archimetrical Universe" + bonus tracks from extra limited CDr boxed version of the album "Nebulous". New edition like DIGI-CD with new design. Space is an illusion. Peter Andersson (Raison D'etre, Stratvm Terror, Svasti-ayanam, Necrophorus) is one of the handful of finest sound manipulators in the world. Period. Archimetrical Universe showcases Peter’s dissection of the sky, a Caesarean section that births massive, geometrically perfect sonic diversions, all spheres and angles, burnished metal dreams and pristine sonic caresses that reconfigure sound into smooth surfaces. To counterbalance the exactness of the sonic development, light rhythms emerge, huge slabs of disrupting tones puncture, the scattered remnants of all of Peter’s projects utilized in the creation of the music here. Everything seems to be in perpetual motion, evolving, revolving, reinvented at the mercy of Peter’s deft hands and devious whim. The clarity of production and meticulous restructuring of the known (space, stars, planets) with the unknown (space...stars...planets...) only heightens the journey upon which he guides us, an alluring venture into the cavernous realm of space...but not a space most of us would imagine. Whether he is sonically scrubbing the architecture, or just mesmerizing us with another sound sculpture at the edge of forever, Archimetrical Universe is, quite possibly, Peter’s finest release yet, which says a lot because his sonic portfolio runneth over with intoxicating, mind-altering sound manipulations that inspire one’s imagination with conflicting emotional responses (sorrow, desolation, awe, wonder) at all times. Space is an illusion...but Peter has brought it to life. Essential.
