Брутальное альтер-эго дарк-эмбиентового проекта Inade, имеющее довольно большой вес на PE / DI - сцене. Собственно, это совершенно канонический замес упомянутых стилей, звучащий, как и положено - пульсирующе-неторопливо и тяжеловесно-давяще.
'War Within Breath, by Ex.Order, compiles the best tracks laid down by the heavy, power electronics side-project of the ambient-surrealist outfit known collectively as Inade, across two centuries, from 1997 to 2002.
While Inade's music is a journey through the collective, subconscious mystery of the human experience, Ex.Order's sonic focus is—at least where this work is concerned—on capturing the audible sounds of the nightmare, the absolute depravity and hopelessness, which follows in the wake of the darker, physical influences of humanity. The sounds that make up the majority of War Within Breath's tracks are those of conflict and aftermath; the thunder of war, and the sickening silence, the spectral humming and morbid whisper that comes after the tanks have advanced and the troops have fallen back serve as the cornerstone for Ex.Order's subjective vision of the state of our world, and the scientifically-advanced apocalypse that has spread across it like a pox since the beginning of the 20th Century.
Across the twelve tracks presented by Ex.Order on War Within Breath, burned into plastic for all eternity in the same manner that a bomb's yield turns a human being into a shadow etched into a wall, no political message is conveyed so much as accountability and responsibility for what is and what has the potential of being, is demanded of the listener. It is as if Ex.Order have transported the listener directly to ground zero, down into the trenches, and into the sweaty, ozone-filled command centers where the killing starts and ends—sometimes within seconds, but often times slowly and over the course of several hours.
The death and destruction wrought by modern, human conflict are the focus of War Within Breath, not the cause of said conflict. Modern warfare has been described to me as being very similar to a complete and total separation from anything that could remotely be considered "The Divine," or God. This being the case, the tracks that comprise War Within Breath are, for all intents and purposes, bleak, hopeless and without any sense of benevolent grace. There is not hope, there is no cinematic heroism, and there is only despair and the absolute loneliness and darkness of the death rattle.
This is not to say that the music created by Ex.Order on War Within Breath is not beautiful in a sense, because it is. Morbidity can be breathtakingly beautiful, and the sheer perfection, the absoluteness of destruction, and the finality of the loss of life are, in many ways, the soft gleam in the sad eyes of decay. While not easy to listen to at times, War Within Breath is trance-like in its presentation; each sample, each synthetic reproduction of the battlefield, and every loop of every charismatic, zealous leader rallying his troops to their flag for the sake of spilling and shedding blood in the name of any number of beliefs and dogmas, fits together somewhat seamlessly with the next. The end effect, while chilling for the most part, is exceptional for an act that specializes in the forging, filtration and manipulation of common noises and electronic effects into a viable piece of artwork when the day is done and it is time to punch the clock.
War Within Breath is not an easy listen because the music produced by Ex.Order isn't in any way sub-standard. Quite the contrary, in fact, the music that comprises the whole of the CD is astounding, horrifying and, in many ways, all to real...and that is exactly what makes War Within Breath a difficult work to listen to in one sitting.However, once you have started the journey across the wasteland with Ex.Order, you will be too transfixed on the train wreck that you witness within your mind's eye to look away or to turn back.'
