In the mid-2000s a well-crafted solo project emerged from prolific New South Wales as Iniquitous, curated by Alex Burdusel. It was a highly orthodox, atmospheric, solemn funeral of considerable dramatic impact, mostly instrumental in nature. Between 2004 and 2005 Burdusel offered a total of more than an hour of good music among which it is worth mentioning the demo Shards Of Hope, containing the almost twenty-minute track of the same name, which, in terms of sound, is close to what Ryan Henry had done the year before with Reclusiam and to what Ea would produce shortly afterwards: the contemporaneity with these two bands shows how far the work of Iniquitous was far from derivative and what its potential remained unfortunately unexpressed.
