Ex-Anathema bassist Duncan Patterson mellows out with a world beat musical mindset on his side project Ion’s latest eight-track offering entitled IMMACULADA. Don’t expect any sign of the heaviness from his other projects here; instead, soak the Celtic-influenced serenity in from these set of songs that soothe the soul with haunting piano and synths (“Cetatea Cisnadioara”), hovering choral refrains, and luxurious percussion and acoustic instrumentation. Adorned with an array of captivating female vocalists that assist in keeping the atmosphere meditative, Ion is an emotionally heavy album that emits a mystical aura that enchants and relaxes.
