"One of the most important music projects of the decade [...] A new era."
- Propuesta Cultural, MEX
“The artist’s strength lies in sound design; the shoegaze like distorted guitars mixed and nostalgic synth patched, the dark ambience that frames the tracks over machine like percussion all comes together to expand upon the unique, dark musical world of Vlimmer.”
- Sounds from the Cvlt, SWE
“Disturbing and attractive at the same time”
- Underdog Fanzine, GER
“Vlimmer hypnotizes” “Haunting”, “It sweeps you off your feet in an almost subtle way.” “For those who want to get lost in the mist.”
- Pretty in Noise, GER
“A unique musical matureness", "a great manipulator of sound".
- Ver Sacrum, ITA
"A fine amalgam of Shoegaze, Gothic, Dark Wave, Drone and dark Krautrock" which is "always diverse [...] superbly wallowing in Weltschmerz and melancholy. [...] Pierces marrow and bone, but beautifully."
– Subjectivisten, NL
"Vlimmer are here to push avant-garde electronica in more experimental and dark paths. [...] It’s pure alternative dark ambient, shoegazing, [yet they] manage not to sound blurry or chaotic."
– Last Day Deaf, GRE
"It’s heavy music, yet not sounding heavy in its production; injecting itself straight in to a listeners heart and feelings."
– Yeah I Know It Sucks, UK
"Intriguing, ambitious, almost monastic, archaic, lively, mellow, dirty, mechanical, loud, distorted, experimental, big, majestic, melancholic, nocturnal, charismatic [...] The undeniable song writing skills of [Vimmer] go hand in hand with an artistic overall picture of dark charm that overcomes certain traditional schemes. Every Cold Wave lover who is open to new ideas, should follow this German musician, starting from these first four volumes of a project that will surely provide surprises."
- Dark Room Magazine, ITA
“Harsh and claustrophobic.”
- Musique oblique, GRE
This is one of the best shoegaze albums I have heard this year, it kind've coincided with DEAFCULT's release of Auras, so I don't want it to be eclipsed. I want this on vinyl! If there is any physical format to this amazing LP, I need to find it! Thank you for this musical gift! Charlie Mayer
