MARGINIS: THAT WHICH IS TRAGIC AND TIMELESS
CD: Cold Meat Industry CMI146 
Ltd x 2000
The latest (the number of official / compilation / tapes put out by Johan Levin as Desiderii Marginis is too long to list) and a very welcome return anyway to this musical maestro. Haven’t heard of Desiderii Marginis before? Hang your head in shame boy. Like…what the fuck have you been listening to? I shake my head in frustration sometimes.
a brief summery for you. From the frozen backwaters of Mjolby in Sweden.
Although probably not strictly true but then everything appears frozen
from that country. Formed in 1993. Works within the black ambient / orchestral
oomph type of genres. Highly intelligent and a purveyor of the arts in
general. Some of his music forms the basis of musical interpretations
of other art forms and artists. His style is generally highly evocative.
Never a dull moment where Johan’s concerned. The majority of his
finest work can be found on the CMI label. Check out his past releases
or his own website for more information if you haven‘t already done
so. Time well spent on the old superhighway. Such a nice guy is he he’ll
even respond to your queries or sell you some of his music. Swedes are
like that. Generous to a T.
question of ‘is this latest release his best to date’ doesn’t
apply here. Every Desiderii Marginis recording has so far exceeded all
expectations and each is worthy in their own ways of that accolade. I
thoroughly enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed the others. The experience
of listening to potent music that emotionally inspires is a wonderful
gift to receive. For that I give thanks. Thanks Johan.
