Contains part 6 & 7 of Vlimmer's 18 EP series.

►Dark Room Magazine (ITA) says that Vlimmer's "songwriting qualities keep growing rapidly [...] A musician with an artistic vision, independent from patterns and styles: an inexhaustible source of coexisting genres like Dark Wave, Krautrock, Coldwave, Post-Punk, Shoegaze, Ambient, Noise, you name it - elaborated with style and personality. [...] The German mastermind has, once more, exceled himself."

►Underdog Fanzine (GER) says that the music "more than ever [...] goes underneath your skin. [...] Vlimmer creates a sacredly appealing atmosphere, a disturbingly vexing sound character with an impressively multi-layered realisation that produces nebulous, experimental Industrial Darkwave. [...] It dissociates people from their everyday life [and] dissolves them in between reality and fantasy."

►Subjectivisten (NL) calls it "an almost hallucinatory trip which leaves deep scars. [...] Vlimmer just continues excellently. [...] Exciting as a good thriller [...] Grows with every release [...] Once more, a great treasure."

►New Noise Magazine (USA) says "What makes Vlimmer such an interesting project is the ethereal landscapes that Donat creates with symphonic pieces of equipment."

►Sputnik Music (USA): "Chilly Coldwave rarely sounded richer". "An ambitious, forward thinking and truly captivating plunge into what at times strikes me as an almost separate musical universe."

►Mithra Templezine (FRA) speaks figuratively about the new double release: "The theme of light clashing with dark permeates the very fibre of these two records. From unsettling voids, droplets of silver are wrung. [The songs] immediately sink you into the sort of fug that clogs the lacquered floors of Kreuzberg dive bars in the twinkle of the night. Rhythmic thuds that whisper of danger lurch along like hunchbacked opportunists leading you, via a gnarled fist grasping a trembling elbow, through paint-stripped doorways into dripping basements reverberating with faint chain clinks."

►Intravenous Magazine (UK) says that with EPs 6 & 7 Vlimmer "is an unusual and yet strangely satisfying artist [with a] rich and diverse style [...] inhabiting a netherworld between proto-ebm, early synthpop, drone and dreamy ambient electronics. [...] [The] production [...] amplifies the haunting melancholy of the tracks even more."

►Igloo Magazine (USA) says that "this bunch of nicely made tracks will easily convince fans of dark waving and moodily atmospheric electro-gothic music, mainly from the 80s. [...] It sounds like a celebration of famous underground sub-genres"

►Ver Sacrum says (ITA) writes that Vlimmer's "common denominators
are unrest and melancholy [...] Vlimmer, again, manages not to repeat himself, instead it's a kaleidoscope of sounds where every element is in the right place. It's never mundane, but always worthwhile"

►Last Day Deaf (GRE) describes Vlimmer as a “unique and very ambitious project with trademark [sound] [...] Distorted and fragile at the same time, perfectly balanced […] tearing down genre boundaries [...] Brilliant! [...] This is talent!“
