Desolate and bare, PLANETARY CONFINEMENT is an album laden with somber overtones, as Antimatter’s dark vibe is reverberated on the project’s third (and perhaps final) release. Enriched by deep acoustic guitars with lush string arrangements behind, songs like “The Weight of the World” and “Relapse” freeze you in your tracks, quicken the coldness in your body and then emit the kind of bleak output that people on the edge shouldn’t even dare go near. Ethereal and melancholic, the intensity given off from this nine-track endeavor rivals that of Portishead or Radiohead, yet Antimatter remain smooth in its delivery throughout, switching vocal perspectives between male and female often for extra flavor, and creating an ambient soundtrack of isolationism for those who enjoy the suffering a bit more than others.
