Inner Stalker Metrics is the name of the one song EP released at the end of 2009 by the band Nekrasov, a one man act known for their longer Ambience and Atmospheric Black Metal releases since their second full length The Form of Thought from Beast, featuring the song by that same name. This release has been made free to download through the label’s web site (see link above) as part of it’s on-line exclusives collection. But, is free even worth the time that this nearly thirty seven minute song will take out of your life?

If you are just looking for something haunting to play in the background, eventually Inner Stalker Metrics picks up into something that an Ambience fan would like. The track start off well enough, but as it progresses you have to deal with what sounds like hail slamming down, which is fine until it picks up to a purely noise capacity and “Inner Stalker Metrics” becomes more of a migraine inducing Ambience cut until it finally ends and gives way to a low, evil sounding Drone element with random moments of radio static thrown in to amp up the creepiness…for the rest of the song. Yep, that’s right, this droning goes on for more then half of this EP, only to have that static that randomly appeared pop up and be far worse, all as if it is some failed experiment for ghostly voices through some white noise project.

Inner Stalker Metrics may be free for download, but clearly there is a reason for it. There’s no real interpretation you get from the music. Sure when it drones on you start to feel uneasy from a somewhat evil sound that is presented, but that’s it. There is plenty of other material out there that can really push the limits of this style of music, and sadly this track is not one of them. The only people this recording will attract are those that are very dedicated to this genre and will listen to anything like it, and not those who are looking for something that will really feed into the Ambience of the track itself. While impressive that it isn’t too repetative, it may not be worth your time to check out, even at the cost of nothing but thirty six minutes of your life.

01. Inner Stalker Metrics – 36:24 Overall Score: 2/10
