Third twelve-inch from Necro Deathmort. I have been following this duo for some time now (actually since their CD “Music Of Bleak Origin” released in 2011). So, as you can see I still purchase albums from various artists (even though lately I have been posting about my “Death Metal” collection etc.). Necro Deathmort has been close to my heart for years now and still I love what they are doing, strange dark ambient filled synth-whatever-you-wanna-call-it. I bought this via Distraction […]
Breaking the silence with this new one from The Caretaker. This is the second album from the series of six albums. Surely I know that this kind of music ain’t for everyone (dark ambient, classical, experimental) but it’s close to perfect if you ask me. I still remember hearing The Caretaker for the first time, I think it was via Boomkat because I immediately ordered a copy of “An Empty Bliss Beyond This World”. Those soundscapes on that album […]
And here’s one of those records I just came across via BandCamp. After listening just few tracks I knew that I have to purchase this one. I don’t know anything about this record but damn I like it. Oh, this is a record filled with drone/darkened ambient soundscapes and could certainly be soundtrack for upcoming apocalypse. Yes, it’s that dark, hopeless, crushing & beautiful. There’s no info about limitation of this darkened diamond but it’s still available from Envelope Collective. […]
Latest release from The Caretaker aka Leyland Kirby. I totally missed this when it was available from Boomkat (of course I was after colored one..). I even considered purchasing a copy (overprized one) from those Discogs sellers. Just few weeks before the end of the year Boomkat announced having a very limited stock still available.. This blue version is limited to 300 copies and already sold out (actually this color variation sold out within hours) and seems that even regular […]
Yes, new release from Alessandro Cortini. What can I say, brilliant record this is (like all the previous releases from this artist). There’s two tracks on this 12″ and I find this recording very dark, hopeless.. in other words it’s a beauty. I have no idea of limitation but this is available from numerous stores, for example from following ones Piccadilly Records, Norman Records, Red Eye Records. Grab a copy and step into the darkness. More, please (and soon!)
Another one from this Argentinian black metal/darkened ambient group. Somehow I’m deeply fascinated to their music. There is only a handful of black metal bands I like to listen and this band has taken its rightfull place on that hand. This white-colored copy is limited to 100 copies and seems that it’s already sold out but there’s still plenty of regular black copies available for example from the source, Vendetta Records. Purchase this one and let the clouds cover you from […]
Oakeater with their latest release “Aquarius”. I get to know this group from their split release with Mamiffer few years ago and I’m happy that I did. This record is filled with industrial, darkened, ambient, drone and it’s crushing, disturbing & mesmerizing at the same time. Post-apocalyptic soundtrack with no hope of sunny days of late 70’s. Limited to 150 copies and available from Sige Records (US) & Anost (EU). Go for it while it’s still available. — —
Title tells it all. First part of O’Malley’s trilogy of solo albums supposed to be released during this year. I have to admit that I didn’t know that this gentleman is a part of Sunn O))) until last year (reason for that might also be the fact that I have managed to skip every album by this band). Correct move has been done and I ordered Sunn O)))¨s latest “Kannon” some time ago (still missing the copy & hope that […]
Then there’s time for some darkened (twisted) ambient flavored with some jazz tunes.. or something. Second album from this band (as far as I know) and both of them released by one of my favorite record companies, Important Records. These clear copies are limited to 100 copies and rest 400 copies are pressed on black wax. Both versions are still available from Important Records. Recommended one, surprisingly.. — —
Did some gratedigging yesterday and never thought I could find Mamaleek’s record here where I live, but I did. This mint condition album cost me 10 euros and I’m really glad that I now can swipe this record from my secret “wantlist”. Mamaleek is a weird mixture of black metal, dark ambient, drone, noise etc. and I have been a big fan of this band since I heard their album “Kurdaitcha” (which I’m still missing). Limited to 300 copies and […]
I nearly skipped this one (do not even ask why..) but suddenly I came to my senses and purchased this white vinyl version from Profound Lore. My first album from Prurient and I have to say that this release leaves me speechless.. overwhelming & astonishing one. This release needed a little time and patience but suddenly it revealed itself to me. Don’t even know what genre to put this one because there obviously are influences from all of them.. electronics, […]
Then it’s time to return back to the darkness. Latest record from Alessandro Cortini and fifth one I own from this mastermind. There’s a good reason why I keep purchasing his records, these are absolutely stunning!. Dark, abstract, electro-ambient or something like that.. I have praised this gentleman so many times before and will continue doing that in the future. Stunning masterpiece of darkened synth-ambient. Initial copies came on white vinyl and It’s quite obvious that these are already sold […]
Haunting, that’s what this debut album from FVNERALS is. I have been staring at this monitor for a while now wondering what to say about this record. This sounds hopeless, this sounds fragile, this sounds crushing. Is this darkened ambient, slowcore filled with drone soundscapes? I do not really know but damn, this sounds awesome! You better listen this album by yourself, maybe then you’ll understand what I’m trying to say here.. This splattered version is limited to 75 hand-numbered […]
Here it is. Shadow Play by 36. Awesome! I have been following this artist now about 3-4 years and this artist is one of those whose records are ‘must have’ for me. This album is filled with drone & ambient, darkened kind. I don’t know but somehow there’s this sad atmosphere wrapped around it.. sad but waiting. ‘Shadow Play’ is limited to 100 copies for those who ordered (and funded) it, so this record on vinyl format might be little hard to find […]
Yes, what a soundtrack for these first winter days. Drone/dark/ambient, what else can you expect from this duo. Obviously this release is going to have some serious rotation on my headphones. This is a beauty, from cover to waves in the air. Available from Sonic Pieces/Miasmah. You know, just listen.. — —
These two double albums, “Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was (Part One: When We Parted My Heart Wanted To Die) & (Part Three: Memories Live Longer Than Dreams)”, arrived also today. With these I made an exception, I bought these from Discogs and as used items. But damn, these came packaged secured and are in awesome condition, covers & vinyls. I’m really happy and hey, I got these really cheap. Two new items to my Kirby-collection, and […]
Two weeks of silence is over. This latest from Necro Deathmort arrived today. Yes, I like their experimental droned/doomed/darkened/ambient a lot. Actually I’ve been a fan since I got their “Music of Bleak Origin” CD on my hands couple of years ago. Second twelve-inch EP they have released on vinyl and would like to see if they ever gonna release that “Music of Bleak..” on vinyl too. Beautiful release, once again. Limited to 333 copies and available from Distraction Records […]
Second 12″ from Moon Zero, released by Denovali. Yesterday I posted about Moon Zero’s first twelve-inch and today it’s time for this one. In my opinion this one is darker than the first one.. hard to say. I really love these tunes so I can’t say anything critical about these releases. For me these two twelve-inches are droned dark ambient at its best. This is limited to 150 copies on ultraclear and 200 copies on black vinyl. Both versions still […]
Speechless with this one, absolutely breathtaking release. Is this dark ambient or drone, I don’t care. Sounds awesome and the truth is that I purchased this one without listening a single note from this release. Beautiful.. just listen to it and you might realize what I mean. Limited to 150 copies on ultraclear and 200 on black vinyl, available from Denovali. No words.. —
Yet again one of those purchases I made via Discogs few weeks ago. I like electronic music (thanks to Pan Sonic, for me it will always be Panasonic though), experimental electronic music. With this album I’m happy because also this has been on my “wantlist” too long time. Even though I listen metal music a lot, it’s always beautiful moment to place disk like this on turntable. Dark electronic music, perfect way to clear your head. I do not know […]
I have to admit that I nearly missed this one (nearly). When this came out from Sonic Pieces earlier this month I thought that it will not sell out that fast but oh boy.. I was so wrong. This sold out from the source very fast and I was left empty-handed. Within few days copies of this compilation popped up on Discogs with higher prize tags. I was ready to purchase overpriced copy but luckily enough I found a copy […]
Once I heard this record I just couldn’t resist purchasing it. Even though there are goth elements on this album I prefer this to be more like industrialized, droned dark ambient. There is surely something dark lurking behind these tunes… This is totally new duo/band to me and thanks goes to Bart (one of my readers, who actually has a nice blog of his own) for leading me to this record via his recommendations. I managed to find this white […]
And then we come to this. I’m really glad that I came across with this album (thanks to Bart for emailing me some awesome recommendations!). This is.. like dark ambient seasoned with some folk influences.. or something. It’s hard for me to describe how this actually sounds, experimental dark ambient? Anyways, very touching album for me and I love the atmosphere it creates. Perfect release, highly recommended. If I’m not totally wrong, this is limited to 400 copies on black […]
Finally I got this beauty, compilation including two albums on vinyl ‘Moths Have Eaten the Core’ and ‘The Prevailing Wind’ from Gates. This is dark, nearly hopeless dark ambient double package. Superb compilation and very nice work from Ivory Antler & Anti-Matter. This compilation was limited to 50 copies and sold out a long, long time ago. But if you are interested, ‘The Prevailing Wind’ can be purchased from Ivory Antler and ‘Moths Have Eaten the Core’ from Anti-Matter Records. Recommended […]
Finally, my first album from Bohren & Der Club Of Gore on vinyl (been a fan more than few years though). The one before this release, Dolores, went missing along few other LP’s during shipment few years ago (I don’t even want to reminisce that case.. ). Back to this album and present day. I call this dark jazz, seasoned with ambient and something unknown, brooding.. Smoother than The Kilimanjaro Dark Jazz Ensemble or The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation (both […]
And then came this Monster. “I Shall Die Here” from The Body/The Haxan Cloak. This is the most evil, twisted, disturbing (on best way possible) record I have received for a long time. Bobby Krlic (better known as The Haxan Cloak) and The Body puts out amazing/awesome doomed dark ambient record and this one will surely be on my top ten records this year. Aaarrgghh.. intimidating one. Limited to 300 copies on white vinyl (seems to be sold out now) and of […]
This also came today, dark electronic music (ambient? maybe..). I’m really bad when it comes to categorizing music. My point is to buy music I like, not to put some zones between genres. And about this album, I like this dark atmosphere floating around these electronic tunes. Glad that I purchased this one, very glad. Hope to hear from this artist in the future. Unfortunately this colored one (200 copies) seems to be sold out now, but you can pick up […]
Oh, I was horrified when I picked this up from the Post office today.. package looked like it has been used as a Frisbee. With rising blood pressure and red in my eyes I opened the package and found this one in it.. ..twelve-inch EP and cover with bends, bumbs, paint etc.. and then I realized that this is just how it should look like! Brilliant! This is awesome EP from Snakepiss and the cover itself tells its own story, […]
And absolute winner of the week, even though it’s Monday. Oh how long I have waited this to be released on vinyl and here it is (thanks to Aurora Borealis). This brings back memories when I was a teenager and borrowed some “Dark Ambient” compilation on CD from public library. And what a trip it was, unheard soundwaves in cold, dark autumn night.. And now this one, over 20 years later. This is awesome album, so dark, hopeless, cold and.. […]
Hmmm… makes me wonder. This is so called “Dark Ambient”, soundscapes filled with urban coldness and emptiness. Shivering. This second vinyl release from Howlround is limited to 300 copies on black vinyl and available from The Fog Signals and Boomkat etc..
Ooohh.. And here it is. First Necro Deathmort release on vinyl (as far as I know..). Very frightening record and surprise, I love this. Hope that Distraction Records would release earlier records of Necro Deathmort as well on vinyl. And how could I describe this record? Dark-Ambien-Electro-Experimental..You may have to experience this on your own. Limited to 333 copies on black vinyl and available from Distraction Records. Run, run and get your copy while you can. Recommended!
Actually this update is about Necro Deathmort’s upcoming 12″ “EP1”. But let’s get back in time few years.. I bought this CD from Bandcamp few years ago and I was (still am) convinced about awesomeness of this album. Had to say that I spent numerous hours sitting in the train listening this with my headphones on. Then few days ago I read Tweet (thanks to “themightychew”) about their upcoming 12″ on vinyl. There is no question, I had to […]
This came from Boomkat today. I was not familiar with this artist but hearing few tunes from Boomkat Store, I was convinced that I have to purchase this one. Glad I did. Initial copies come on clear vinyl and this is available from Boomkat, if you fancy one.
This, latest album from Oneirogen, came also today from Denovali. Album filled with experimental dark ambient, noise etc. Brilliant! This is limited to 350 copies (150 on electric blue and 200 copies on black vinyl). Available from the source, both versions, Denovali. Recommended, highly!
And yes, this came also yesterday from Denovali. Lovely one, indeed. As I have said before, these releases from Denovali are getting better and better. Limited to 350 copies, 150 of those came on green vinyl and rest are on black vinyl. Both versions are available from the source, Denovali.
Aarrrgghh.. Winner, pure gold this one. This also came today. Awesome, awesome and it was worth to wait this album to be released. Recommended highly!! Dark ambient, experimental..etc. Available from every good record store (I think). I bought this from Boomkat.
Ordered this from Boomkat and this arrived yesterday. Initial copies came on clear vinyl (according to Boomkat). I have few records from this group and it was easy decision to purchase this release. I know that this is not everybody’s cup of tea but for me this cup is tasty indeed. Sadly Boomkat has sold this one out. If you are looking to get a copy, there are plenty available from Discogs..
Aaaaargghhh… Once again excellent release from Denovali. If this is so-called dark ambient, I want to wrap myself in to these sound waves and love the whole world openly. Awesome record from Saffronkeira, if you do not believe, try. This is limited to 150 copies on this color and 200 copies on black vinyl. Both colorways are available straight from the source, Denovali (previous releases from Saffronkeira are also available from the same address).
Been listening these ambient/electronic records last few days.. This one I picked last summer and once again, I like what I’m hearing. I know this kind of music little hard for some people to understand :) This little dark diamond is available from Boomkat (other place to look for this is Discogs).
I purchased this few years ago from Boomkat. Only problem was that it came shrinkwrapped and had seam splits everywhere. Since then all records from Boomkat has arrived record taken out from the cover. I love these darken ambient recordings. This is from the first press (100 copies clear and 600 copies black) and surprisingly there is also second run. There are plenty of copies at Discogs.. if you are interested.
What a beautiful record this is. Bought this nearly a year ago and this was my first touch with this band, damn. Surprisingly I’m trying to get all releases from this band on vinyl.. hoarder.. This is limited to 200 copies on yellow (+ yellow 7″) and 300 on black vinyl. Available from Denovali, both versions.
Yet another great release from Denovali. I’m so happy that this album saw the sun light on vinyl at last (and we can thank Denovali for that). Beautiful (dark) ambient record from this Russian group. This is limited to 100 copies on black vinyl with grey haze and 200 copies on black vinyl. Black one is still available from Denovali. I recommended you to snag a copy.
This duo from Montréal keeps surprising me record after record. If you like dark ambient, ritual drones, this is for you. Released by Denovali. Limited to 300 copies (150 on this colour and 150 copies on aqua blue/black vinyl). And if you really want this jewel, it’s available from Norman Records.
If I have something to say.. this is disturbed music/noise/drone. Frightening.. but somehow fascinating. If I remember right, I bought this from Boomkat more than year ago. You can get your hands on this vinyl via Discogs or Ebay, I think.
SaffronKeira is from Sardinia, Italy. And again I have to thank for Denovali for releasing these records. This kind of dark, emotional ambient is for those moments when you are all alone.. Damn, endless agony of being sick. I’m sold (again and again). This is limited to 150 copies on clear and 200 copies on black vinyl. Both versions are still available from Denovali. Get yours while you still can!
Wou! This is dark! Dark ambient at its best. Quite good music for Christmas :) Grandmother watches Bold & Beautiful from TV and I stare to the distance with my headphones on. This great and shadowy album is limited to 250 copies and is available from Barge Recordings.
And this came today. This 10″ was previously only available inside Kreng’s Box-Set “Works for Abattoir Fermé 2007 – 2011” but now there is 100 copies floating around. Available from Denovali, if some one is interested (will be sold out sooner or later!).
I really do not remember when I purchased this one and that is a shame. Brilliant dark ambient recording. Damn. Where was this band when I needed them most? This is sold out from the label, Blackest Ever Black and Boomkat has also sold this out. You can find this dark ambient/industrial flower easily from discogs for very decent prize.
This I ordered earlier this year and this has been in heavy rotation on my headphones since then. So called avant-garde jazz, or something. Limited to 200 copies (60 on green/grey marbled vinyl and 140 copies on pink/purple marbled). Available from SMT Limited (they seem to have both versions).
