Liquid Faith An EP that turns out to be one of Alio Die's most dark and creative experiences. Strange muted chanting,black slow mechanical like drones. Hauntingly eerie and beautiful. I must say as a long time fan it did surprise me, and since I love dark drone music this was a great find. Alio doesn't delve this deep very often, and even though it's short it's a phenomenal work. Fans of the darker side of surreal industrial-like ambiance will love this!

His music is a shadowy, cavernous, intensely detailed fusion of acoustical elements, step-and-repeat sample treatments, sparse, echoing percussion, and deep, atmospheric sound design, textural the music's vague, entropic formlessness.
