John 3:16: John 3:16

This ambient / drone project based in the U.K. called John 3:16 is apparently the work of one man who's identity, much like the 7 pieces of music presented on this full length self titled release is shrouded in darkness and mystery. These instrumental compositions can certainly be called fairly minimalist as far actual sounds go, relying primarily on lengthy vibrant drones colored with a plethora of simple, yet highly effective and atmospheric sounding keyboards. Each track unfolds at its own deliberate pace, gradually increasing in tension as it progresses along its trajectory. The songs are finely crafted and easy to listen to, putting the listener into a relaxed state even though the music resonates with feelings of coldness and despair. The song titles, like the name of the project have allusions to the bible so perhaps there is some sort of a subliminal message to be had somewhere beneath the clinically layered sound? If you like music with a dark and ambient feel to it, then John 3:16 is going to be right up your alley. Ultimately in the end, this is a rewarding listening experience and one worthy of checking out.
