Antikatechon is a dark ambient solo project from Italy, started in 2011 by Davide Del Col. He has been creating dark, ritual and industrial ambient music since the late 1990's, mainly under the moniker Ornament. Antikatechon now represents the highlight of his artistic and stylistic creativity. A first full-length album, "Privilegium Martyrii", was published on Silentes Minimal Editions in 2011, providing a very accomplished effort in the realms of hauntingly dark ambient music with a touch of melancholic-spiritual inflected nihilism. Signed in 2012 on Rage in Eden, "Chrisma Crucifixorum" is another eloquent and complex release which oscillates between stately gazing drone sequences and original audio treatments, the whole thing surrounded by a sacral aura. 2013 saw the rise of a collaborative effort with the pioneering ethno-noise ambient act Nimh (Giuseppe Verticchio). This musical meeting gave birth to a passionate and typical dark ambient offering, "Out Hunting For Teeth", with conceptual-visual background connected to the visions and powerful painting works of Goya. Davide Del Col presents here his new catchy electronic dark ambient release entitled "Woe is the Reward", welcomed by Rage in Eden Records. A tremendous, entrancing and blasting dark ambient odyssey full of majestic sound sculptures, huge resonances, bleak noises, metallic reverbs and many more. This sonic, soundtracky and "acoustically haunted" ambient symphony will totally enthrall and ravish the listener.
