A Red Zenith review on Synth & Sequ...

“I say to myself that Sztakics István Attila does not sleep! The man has to spend all of his time behind keyboards, behind keys. Imagine! “A Red Zenith” was written in 2015 while Nord delivered some 4 albums. And considering the quality of his compositions, it’s completely justifiable to ask such a question. Does he sleep? Well, we have to think so! Not that “A Red Zenith” is not good. There are good moments and others which are hollow. It’s an album which is just a little bit uneven with 5 titles all very disconnected one from the other and...

Vortex review in Synth & Sequences

“Even in his clothes of massive EM maker, Nord always manage to draw the best of his imagination” 1 Circles 13:06 2 Spirals 18:06 3 Rotation 19:24 Nord Music (DDL 50:28) ***½ (Roumanian School) Among the artists that I discovered in these last years, Nord is unarguably one of the most appealing.

A Red Zenith includes a bonus track too – Seconds Before Midnight -, that was first released at Kontinuum Productions on a...

“If only for its first 15 minutes…Mare Nubium is worth to be the entering door to the universe of Nord” 1 Mare Nubium Part One 24:52 2 Mare Nubium Part Two 18:16 3 Mare Nubium Part Three 9:32 Nord Music (DDL 52:49) ***¾ (Ambient beats and sequencer-based EM) The Romanians have decided to invade the market of EM manufactured massively! Sztakics Istvan Attila’s second album in 2016, “Mare Nubium” aims to be a sonic vessel where the listener is submerged by a sea of cosmic clouds. It’s a sound experience in the land of the mass production where Nord...
