From the moment you hear the opening notes of "Immortal Game" from Boston based Symbion Project, you know that this is going to be "one of those" CDs. Deep bass, creepy, melodic keys and oddly spastic down-tempo beats combine into a sound that is mesmerizing. This is a great disc for setting up a bondage or spanking scene, but it's sensual feel and emotional undertones make it the ideal companion for any type of sexual exploration.
The opening track "Pawn To King" grabs you with tightly harmonized lyrics and nearly tangible beats. Both "Soft Tempest" and "Lithe and Tawny" swing out with a bit of hip-hop flair with tight bass and smooth R&B style melodies. "Lacrymosa" is a beautiful guitar and keyboard number that is sweet and so sensual that you can practically see the notes leaving your speakers.
Symbion Projecthas a newer disc entitled
"Wound Up By God or the Devil", but for sheer sensuality, and scene making sexual energy, you can't go wrong with "Immortal Game".
To whom it may concern. Symbion Project's main man (as best I can tell) is Kassan Cooper, better known as "The Duke of Candied Apples" from Bostons quirky little synth-band Freezepop. Jump right in with "Science Genius Girl" or "Bike Thief". Two of the best synth pop songs ever recorded!)
