    Day Before Us ‎– Ode A La Nuit D’Ombre
    Label: OPN ‎– OPNCD0035
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition
    Country: France
    Released: 27 Mar 2019
    Style: Dark Ambient, Modern Classical, Neo-Romantic, Experimental

    Day Before Us is an influential melodic dark ambient project currently active under a duet form and whose style borders graceful neoclassical tones, oneiric soothing textures and chilling soundscapes. A number of albums have been published on well-noted indie labels and the project occasionally gives life performances in a wide variety of contexts.

    In these new pieces Philippe Blache and Natalya Romashina are embarking in a musical journey of immediate expressive moods, oftenly mystical ,exalted, animated by a tragic and existential breath, touched by a seraphic sense of poetry and guided by poignant emotional stories. Lead singer Natalya Romashina provides achingly beautiful singing parts with poetical lyrics which favor the aesthetic of suggestion and a tremendous sense of musical fluidity. Those evocative, virtuosic lyrical components communicate with the invocatory, litanous and harmonious qualities of Philippe Blache’s instrumental compositions. « Ode à la nuit d’ombre » is an album of staggering beauty where all pieces come together organically.

    Lunar Abyss Deus Organum ‎– Khara-Khoto
    Label: Zhelezobeton ‎– ZHB-LXXV
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition, Numbered 
    Country: Russia
    Released: 22 Feb 2019
    Style: Ambient, Drone, Experimental, Tribal

    We gladly present the new Lunar Abyss Deus Organum full-length album “Khara-Khoto”! In fact, this is the first big studio work of the project after “Atimudra” (2012, BioSonar^Labyrint) and a long series of split-releases, collaborations, live recordings and various small editions.

    Khara-Khoto was the name of a Tangut city with Buddhist culture which existed in the XI-XIV centuries before it was captured by the troops of the Chinese Ming dynasty (nowadays it’s geographically located in the Chinese Inner Mongolia). The idea of creating this album appeared after visiting a special exhibition at the Hermitage, which presented a lot of original artifacts from this ancient settlement buried in the sands. Special inspiration came from a deep understanding of the ephemeral and impermanent nature of existence – even prosperous cultures can die in one moment because of the blind greed of invaders.

    From the musical point of view, here one can hear the full sound palette typical for Lunar Abyss. This includes multilayered ambiental sketches with flowing chains of samples, voice loops and acoustic instruments; rhythmic percussive tracks with vigorous pulsating energy; abstract collages made of analogue electronics, radio noises and fragments of television programs; semi-static enveloping drones spiced up with field recordings. The psychedelic kaleidoscope of aural images continues its work – the fans of the albums “Snovidenie”, “Tuntury” and “Atimudra” won’t be disappointed!

    The physical edition of the album is made in two versions: a CD limited to 300 copies in a matte 4-panel foldout digisleeve.

  • Exit In Grey ‎– Истерика Вечного

    Exit In Grey ‎– Истерика Вечного
    Label: Frozen Light ‎– FZL 044, Zhelezobeton ‎– ZHB-LXIV
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition, Numbered, Remastered
    Country: Russia
    Released: 26 Aug 2016
    Style: Drone, Dark Ambient

    Radiowaves rustle, layers of ether interference whisper and an electric guitar carefully draws gentle tonal vibrations… The new album by Exit In Grey is indeed largely based on sounds of radio noises, so close to our heart. Although of course this is not a noisy work but rather oneiric, contemplative, shimmering… In two multilayered 20-min long collages we can hear the elements of nature and man-made objects, fragments of random radio interceptions and melancholic guitar parts piercing dark space with its bright emotionality.

    The material was recorded by Sergey [S] in March 2011 and mastered by Oleg Hurvatov (Interior Disposition) in 2016. Co-release with Zhelezobeton (St. Petersburg, Russia) – zhb.radionoise.ru.

    English title: “Hysterics Of The Eternal”.
