Hierophlex From what I've gathered, this album is a very personal account of some tragic events that occurred one fateful night in Malmi, Helsinki... As a long time Malmi resident I can't help feeling a bit haunted by this... But still I would rank this album as one of the best ambient recordings I've ever heard! From the heart-aching sorrow and despair of the first half to the cautious acceptance in the final, this is such a beautiful, cohesive and emotional body of music...! Favorite track: Inner Conflict.

Swedish producer Dan Vicente aka Acronym crafted Malm to pay homage to a lost friend who was torn between his dualistic nature. In a state of paranoia, stress and inner conflict, even brief moments of panic can be fatal. The album manifested itself from this aftermath.

As the sorrow process and grief of Vicente changed with time, so did the arrangements and concept of Malm. The first part showcases the artist’s perspective of the mental and physical circumstances during the events that took place on the fourth of January 2016 in Malmi, Helsinki. The second part comprises his viewpoint after that date.

Vicente offers absorbing and meditative passages of ambience and sombre atmosphere across all pieces here. Long, tailed pads gently come and go, occasional percussive sounds get sprinkled about and bleak keys bring real tenderness. Malm is an escapist listen that ranges from oppressive and heavy paths to more subtly uplifting moods.
