A mesmerizing though unsettling ambient record that really grips the listener. The soundscapes are much like the cover art; seemingly simple yet abstract, but take a closer look and you can see there is all kinds of stuff happening beyond first glance, or apprehension.
Soothing downtempo ambient/electro from Russia. Remnant of Abakus and Tycho, Fjordwalker is able to sculpt soundscapes with high production value and incorporate memorable chill-out beats to the mix. Wouldn't mind seeing this at The Cathedral of Chill @ OZORA.
A post-black-electro ambient record (Think 'Celestite' by WITTR). Though this has nothing to do with black metal other then the intent. It's a fine amateur record, but it's not at all renewing or revolutionary in what it does.
An 'EP' which spans 40+ minutes. It's break time for these blackies and they choose to chill with cosmic ambient soundscapes, still solemn and ever lonely. Though there is a sense of companionship in this kind of lonely. An album turn of your head and flow on ethereal rivers.
Dubbed 'the soundtrack of a coffee-bar in outer space', Salvage sets the standard for psychedelic chill-out with a jazzy feel.
Piano-centered ambient release. It's nice, but like most of us I bought it just because it's John Haughm, because let's be honest, anyone with a midicontroller could do this
Distorion-centered ambient release reminiscent of Agalloch's 'Ashes Against The Grain' closing piece.
"It’s a formless cascade of sound, a vision rendered with countless layers of synths, brass instruments, woodwinds, and the occasional electric guitar, all the while leaving out the human element. " This is the pure essence of black metal ambient, ever evolving suspense done right.
