LiCO3 13. 4. Closer in style to Tomas’ material under the name The Viceroy (previously released on the No Type web site), Bleak is yet another example of the composer’s seemingly innate ability to balance all of his sounds into an atmosphere that is at once quirky and comfy. If the ’Jirku touch’ is instantly recognisable on this album, it will be obvious to the listener that Bleak is fairly different from the rest of the composer’s published work on labels such as Alien8, Force Inc, Klang Elektronik and Intr version.

Although Bleak 1999 came out in mid-2003, it was produced in 1999, prior to Variants, Tomas Jirku's debut CD. The release of Bleak 1999 could be interpreted as a sign of how Jirku was caught off guard by his relative success. Then again, it can be seen as a gift to fans waiting for a follow-up to Entropy. Recycling or not, Bleak 1999 is an excellent disc, displaying a surprising level of maturity for an artist who was still forging his approach. More dance-oriented than Variants (.

Bleak is a Finnish rock band formed in 1997 and split in 2009. Bleak is now known as Fireal. Bleak stuck strictly to grunge during the first years of its career. The new millennium saw the band take a short breather, but Bleak regrouped in 2002, armed with a new, broader musical outlook. Today, the band's music is supposedly a reflection of the eternally bleak ethos of the band members, coated with an earthy penchant for melody, all served continental style.

Canadian producer Tomas Jirku has built a sterling catalog by not doing anything straightforward or ordinary. He burst into the electronic underground’s consciousness in 2000 with his debut LP, Sequins (on Germany’s revered Force Inc. label), a minimal-techno classic, abounding with bizarre, piquant textures and fascinating glitch accents, while keeping a prominent 4/4 thump for your rump
