"Nowhere" is the new full-length of this strange one-man-band from Teheran, Iran. This album offers ten songs packed into 52 minutes that are hard to compare with any other bands. An interesting combination of quiet melodies with strong drums and bass guitar over which are entwined depressive male vocals and angelic female vocals which were sung by Megan Tassaker (Avrigus, Lycanthia). On the album you can hear a lot of parts resembling classical music and also a dose of electronica. The entire album has a very strange dreamy atmosphere and sometimes also depressive. “Nowhere” deals lyrically with themes connected to nature, beauty, sorrow, everyday inner fights, dead dreams, fantasies, etc… As I wrote before, “Nowhere” is hard to compare with any other bands but I believe this album will appeal to those who like Netra, Alcest, Empyrium and maybe even those who enjoy Ulver’s "Themes From William Blake's The Marriage Of Heaven And Hell".
