Dark Ambient

I've been listening to a lot of dark ambient stuff lately, mostly as background noise while I'm doing other shite or before I go to sleep. My current fav is Sleep Research Facility's Nostromo album:

Ultra deep ambience, based on the first 8 minutes of the movie 'Alien' which depicts the deep space haulage vessel slowly moving through the void. The disc takes you through a slow trip into the ship via tracks DECK A - E, deeper and deeper into the bowels of the 'Nostromo'. Colossal dark ambience from the abyss, with beautiful artwork that evokes the sinister atmosphere of the ship.

Check it out here

I've also been listening to The Caretaker. (Any musician that cites "all forms amnesia, various forms of mental illness and specifically alzheimer's disease" as his main influence gets my vote.)

And as usual, Lustmord is pretty much on repeat.

Torture Garden

Terrifying? Uncomfortable? Liberating?

Either way, part of me deep down kinda wants to go to Torture Garden.
