Cat.# … DNA 167 Release Date … 11.02.2015 Genre … Drone Ambient, Field Recordings Type … FLAC Lossless
Кромешна gets back to DNA Production with another murky and deep work, a snapshot of the world around – at this time and at this place. 37-minute-long piece of hum, noise and hubbub from working windmill’s machinery with bird’s twittering in the fields around – that’s «Ветряки», windmills in Russian.
«Ветряки» is not just a field recording. On the contrary, this is self-sufficient system full of industrial noises and heavy drones. That’s a particular feature peculiar to Kromeshna/Кромешна. This project’s works are always uneasy and always gazing into itself inviting a listener to look inside it and inside yourself as well.
Cat.# … DNA 39 Release Date … 12.02.2009 Genre … Drone Ambient, Dark Ambient, Experimental Type … FLAC Lossless
DNA Production continues to release compilations and present a new one called «Could We Live Forever?». This work was done in traditional drone ambient style with influences of dark ambient, experimental and isolationism.
Seven projects contributed tracks for this compilation: Ices Ov, Raspad Atoma, t_error 404 and Kromeshna from Russia, CrepusculaR from Argentina, Bagryanii Schliach from Ukraine and The Large from Finland.
All tracks are composed in different manner but each track gives its own answer for the aforementioned question: «Could we live forever?»”
The choice is yours, whether it is cold denial in «Ultima Thule», aloof silence of «Monochrome Snow» or sad grin in «Metamorphosing»…
Cat.# … DNA 21 Release Date … 25.08.2008 Genre … Dark Ambient, Industrial Type … FLAC Lossless
Raw and hollow clangs interweave with distorted mechanical sounds locked in multidimentional loops. Incessant beat of dead machines resounds in empty rooms of desolate buildings.
Three lo-fi isolationist hymns, a tribute to industrial world balancing on the edge of collapse.
