Senking follows his 2013 album Capsize Recovery (R-N 152CD) with Closing Ice, drawing listeners back into the depths of his musical creativity. The album's nine tracks are intently dedicated to Senking's distinctively bass-heavy and atmospheric compositions, forming trips into the dark recesses of the human psyche. The mid-tempo grooves leave plenty of room for his sawing, war-declaring sounds that unfold into expressive soundscapes, gloomy yet also warm. Every now and then, like a distant echo, a pacifying melodic fragment gives comfort and hope. However, the open and seemingly improvised songs always follow their inner musical logic. "Serpent" or "Lighthouse Hustle," for example, could indeed be interpreted as conventional arrangements -- in general, the riffs and melodies on Closing Ice are rooted in a profound tradition of rock and pop music. With Closing Ice, Senking delivers exactly what the title promises: a balancing act between danger, hope, and destruction, and an eerily beautiful companion into the innermost spheres.
