[Music] Horror Italiani – Torso

As someone who appreciates Italian horror, giallo and other such film genres, receiving an email from this band made me excited to hear what they have to offer.  They did not disappoint.  From the band themselves: Horror Italiani is a new project between swiss dronoise explorer BRTHRM and Brazilian dark ambienoise master Silvio Novelletto, their […]

[Music] Reza Solatipour – The Gate

Reza Solapitour is a dark ambient musician based out of Tehran, Iran, discovered by the best ears in experimental music, Raffaele Pezzella of Eighth Tower Records. The album is booming, eerie and spacious, as though one had the sensation of floating in a cave.  Quite a powerful release.

[Music] Various Artists – Witchcraft & Black Magic In The United Kingdom

I see the history […]

[Music] The Rosenshoul – Low Winter Sun (Deluxe Edition)

The Rosenshoul are a side project of the folks behind Flowers For Bodysnatchers (namely Duncan Ritchie).  If you thought FFB were bleak, this goes a bit deeper into the bowels of Hades. What is particularly remarkable is the fact that time stands still for a good portion of this album.  One can feel like they […]

[Music] JOHN 3:16 – Elyon

JOHN 3:16 are the braintrust of Philippe Gerber, whose dark, post-Industrial Music soundscapes are among a handful of releases I can comfortably read Holy Writ and Apologetics to.  There is something, dare I say, holy, about the quality of his work.  The label he runs, Alrealon Musique, are consistently putting out heavy material.  My friend […]
