Arcane Dimension: In Ecstasy & Sorrow

A San Francisco Bay area female vocalist and a male multi-instrumentalist from Poland may seem like an odd musical pairing. And, in fact, it is. But Teresa Camp and Jack Tatarek somehow crossed paths perhaps drawn together by their turbulent childhoods and toxic relationships and decided to make ambient metal that embraces components of classic rock and gothic music. Think Alanis Morissette meets latter-period Theatre of Tragedy. The album's title is an accurate one, as Arcane Dimension touches on several different lyrical emotions, from the effects of growing up in a religious cult ("Questioning Lies") to the quest for hope ("The Art of Dreaming"). Much of the keyboard-driven music sounds the same, and the dreariness can induce weariness. But, clearly, Arcane Dimension are creating European-style music that is uncommon on American shores.
