Reads: 796 times


Eric Van Wonterghem requires no introduction; this towering figure, renowned not only for his work with Monolith but also for his collaborations with Dirk Ivens in Absolute Body Control, Sonar, and Insekt, is a sonic force of nature capable of shaking any concert hall to its core. However, it's worth noting that Eric has a worthy successor. Aaron Van Wonterghem (the son of the aforementioned) has just unveiled a masterpiece titled "Super Nova", and let me tell you, the name is more than fitting. With four tracks and a remix by Monolith, this album unleashes a sonic tempest in the realms of Technoise-electro, industrial, and noise. While there are plenty of nods to club techno, they are masterfully counterbalanced by trance-inducing, genuinely hypnotic industrial sounds. This music instantly transports me to a dimly lit venue, amidst a throng of dancers effortlessly surrendering to the rhythm. It's a testament to Aaron's skill that this album delivers both in terms of composition and the vibrant atmosphere it conjures. The energy it exudes is palpable. Bravo, Aaron, for a job well done! This gem wreaks havoc on the dance floor with such finesseā€”I can't wait to experience it live!
