Mark Lindhout No matter how deep the abyss of your soul is; When you are there, there’s always Antimatter, a bit below, playing a song about something even worse, in an even darker place.

“It was a business doing pleasure with you!” Favorite track: Stillborn Empires.

Valek Irwin I love this because I hear it like a ray of hope breaking through the usual bleak melancholy of Antimatter. I love all of their music, but it's good to see what seem to be signs of healing and growing self-compassion in Moss. It's different, but it accomplishes that without betraying Antimatter's well-crafted style. "Comrades" and "Hole" are very fitting of me, and couldn't have come at a better time in my life TBH. Favorite track: Comrades.

about

"Anybody who has ever suffered from betrayal can relate to this album,"...

...Antimatter-mainman Mick Moss states self-consciously about his most recent work, "The Judas Table". "I'm singing about my experiences, but I'm a firm believer that they are everybody else's experiences as well."

Throughout his life, Moss has repeatedly experienced disappointment on a personal level along with the self-doubt that goes with it. The deficiencies of human behaviour and social life have always been the proverbial red thread through his lyrics, but prior to "The Judas Table", a critical limit was exceeded for Moss. On Antimatter's sixth album, he accounts for different personal conflicts with an unusual, almost scientific poignancy and is harder on people from his immediate surroundings than ever, yet also on himself: "For 'The Judas Table' I gather together the various personalities of the people who's callous and disrespectful, backstabbing actions caused me countless wasted years of depression", he resumes. "For years I thought the problem was with me. I was always open and tried my best, but was nevertheless used and betrayed many times. This led me to believe I was worthless and must have deserved it. Now I realise the problem was with the clinically psychologically soulless people who treated me that way due to their nature, not mine."

The liberating and empowering conceptual approach is also reflected in the music. "The Judas Table" just like "Leaving Eden" and "Fear Of A Unique Identity" is essentially appealing due to its intense blend of melancholic Art Rock, dark Gothic and introspective acoustic pieces, but as a whole seems less nervous and restless than earlier records. The new Antimatter record appears to be calm and attests to a so far unfamiliar inner peace, an equilibrium found - a hint at the fact that Moss might have overcome his torturing demons?

about

Antimatter England, UK

All along, Antimatter stands for reflective, melancholic music that is better defined by Mick Moss' charismatic vocals and an emotional undertone than by any stylistic pigeon-holing or mind-cuffs. An important landmark in the founding of Antimatter was Duncan Patterson leaving his former band Anathema, whose albums "Eternity" and "Alternative 4" were strongly informed by his song-writing input. ... more
