Ion: Immaculada

Alternative/Ambient/Progressive
4.0/5.0

Duncan Patterson's second Ion project, Immaculada, receives comments on this site simply because of his pioneering work with doom/death metal band Anathema and follwing explorations with Anti-Matter. His Ion project is quite removed from Anathema, but has some kinship with Anti-Matter in tone. The sonic landscape of Ion is quiet, atmospheric, and sometimes surreal. Immaculada is a collection of mysterious, sometimes pleasantly eerie, ballads built upon simple elements including piano, acoustic guitar, cello, mandolin and vocals. Patterson wrote much of the material as he travelled between Ireland and Greece. Both Celtic folk and Mediterrean warm influences songs like Temptation, The Silent Stars, and Adoration. Generally, the effect of Immaculada upon the listener is somewhere between haunting and soothing, and likely both withing movements of Return to Spirit. If you're a fan of Duncan Patterson and enjoy his continuing creative explorations, then Immaculada is pleasant find.
