Restive Plaggona release a brand new studio effort -- a full-length album featuring ten original tracks and a remix from Ancestral Voices, with a dark and melancholic twist, as the title of the project might imply. Connected by a commonality of despair, nostalgia and desolation, Restive Plaggona elevated these elements into its maturity. At its core, each track has a soul-stirring significance, and is embalmed by titles that fringes on a political dimension. Opening number "Intimacy Is Violence" does a remarkable job capturing the vibe of the album, serving as a great introduction. The track has a very industrial tone, with a strong cinematic feel to it. The following track, "Rote Zora", follows suit with a more percussive and colorful arrangement, with a more substantial focus on rhythmic patterns. "Cut Off From Modern Society" is a combination of dark atmospheres, lush melodies, and glitchy beats. "Sudden Burst Of Safety" is another excellent track worth mentioning due to its stadium-sized drums and saturated sounds, adding an aggressive feel to the music. All in all, the album is a real sonic journey. Silently Hopelessly marks Restive Plaggona's first LP for Swiss-based record company Thrènes (which takes its name from the Greek word for "funeral lament"), a label dedicated to the release of tenebrous electronica and techno.
