The fear of the unknown is secondary perhaps only to the fear of personal mutilation and pain, the paranoia ever-present in situations where survival instinct and physical endurance are pitted against forces beyond understanding and human experience. Necronom IV is a new and incredibly impressive dark ambient entity projecting that fear and anxiety into a series of massive recordings based on Ridley Scott's Alien, perhaps the ultimate expression of the fear of the unknown existing in modern popular culture. Necronom IV's approach is severe and dense, evoking the hollow and lonely infinity of the cosmos married to a growing sense of unease and horror. You are simply adrift in the magnitude, being pulled ever further into darker reaches, receding into the glistening eyelessness of a nature far-removed from your own.
