Taken from 'I', 'Verankerung' is a haunting, cold, monotone piece of darkwave that combines a solid, incessant beat with continuous distortion that sounds like the dying scream of an electric guitar that's been thrown into a furnace. A bassline rumbles through, almost offering peaks and troughs to an otherwise fairly emotionless song - something which is deliberate and executed perfectly. Synths give a haunted and eerie feel, as do the vocals that are perhaps the voice equivalent of a thousand-yard stare. Vlimmer creates a hostile environment with his music, and that makes it quite compelling, a bit like opening a door marked "Do Not Enter" just out of the sheer curiosity to beak the rules. If this is your kind of thing then get ready for plenty more to come.
