Conjure One – “Like Ice”: Viva Music Album Review:

Rhys Fulber, the Canadian-born artist and producer behind Conjure One, releases “Like Ice”, the remix EP, the lead single from the band’s third album, “Exilarch”. Formerly of Front Line Assembly and Delirium, Rhys Fulber proposes in his third, exodus-like nomadism of sound, “Exilarch” a musical rendition of the various travels we need to make between past and present, darkness and light, serenity and disquietude. Packed with no less than seven versions of the song, included the album edit, “Like Ice” is chanted in its various versions covering a wide floor space from dance to distort, from edits to extended versions. The collaborations included in the single release take the best of “Like Ice” and show us the multitude of facets of the track, and, last but not least, predict its unfathomable charm. Overall impressive, and still allowing for minor crevices and hidden valleys of sound, the single pack is a good deal for the listener who wants to rejoice the variety, and also substantial grounds to admire the musical arrangements and the voice of Jaren Cerf.
