Leonid M. Zhest' - «KaYa»Cat.# … DNA 33
Release Date … 18.12.2008
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … mp3 CBR 320 kbps

«…At times you get tired… Too tired to cling to emptiness. Too tired to crawl when pain starts to blinding you, when pain gives rise to hatred. Too tired to crawl, you can’t move totally. And then only hair you leave on your pillow could scream… When your boiling blood starts to tear you from inside you force yourself to stare in the black sky hoping that now all light spots become dark or go away forever.
Meanwhile, you prefer to become a stupid hermit, to keep yourself hidden by esoteric amulets, to believe in signs and to avoid sunlight. You’re continuing to stare at emptiness, to touch the strings with awkward fingers. You’re remembering all you loved and dreaming of better life.
But finally as ever all it turns to dust laying under strangers’ feet…»

Release Date … 24.11.2008
Genre … Dark Ambient

This work is dedicated to various mysterious phenomena occured on the Earth. People think it was caused by UFO appearance or by alien activity.

Some governments are informed of that phenomenon’s causes to some degree but they’re trying to conceal it from society. The official Governments’ version today is that the only cause of all those mysterious phenomena that look like UFO activities is an incorrect perception of casual occurrencies.

Anyhow all those things are the reason to ponder over it to be prepared to encounter any phenomenon in future.

Release Date … 01.11.2008
Genre … Dark Ambient, Industrial
Type … mp3 CBR 320 kbps

Release title is a misspelt word «asphyxia» that means air insufficiency which attends central nervous system and blood circulation disorders.

This collaborative work have been started by Vitaly Maklakov who selected unreleased Obozdur tracks created in spring / summer 2008 and sent it to LN 313 via internet.

LN 313 has reworked Obozdur sound sources. He has added something new to it changing each track in his own way. When reworks were done, LN 313 has sent tracks back to Vitaly.

Under LN 313 influence Obozdur’s impulsivity and anxiety have became a bit abstract. Sound has got sharpness and coldness, textures have lost its homogeneity but have put on depth.

581C part «Evangelion» is a single long track inspired by anime series with same name. It’s dark and claustrophobic ambient that sounds like mystical noises in a forgotten space station.

GTI & Obozdur - «Свалка бетонных изделий»Cat.# … DNA 23
Release Date … 20.09.2008
Genre … Dark Ambient, Noise
Type … mp3 CBR 320 kbps

First part is waiting for an outburst.

Vibrating in tension walls of dark ambient are transpierced with microsounds of anisochronously bursting interatomic links.
Noises pierce ambient walls. They instantly spread through reinforcement net, crumpling and destructing. It’s just like sudden pain pierces body and burn nerves.

And then a furious swirling comes in second part. Abrasive noise outbursts are overflowed with analogue noise blows.
After a few minutes of clash both sides are taken up by hot steam of boiler house curling noise just a seconds before explosion that will ruin boiler leaving only concrete slab fragments with rusty reinforcement scraps…

This Russian projects GTI and Obozdur collaborative work results in explosive blend of dark ambient and noise with dense and rich sound.

  1. GTI & Obozdur – Сумрачные тени прошлого (Gloom Shadows Of Past) (8:55)

Письма с изнанки – «Бездна детства»

Письма с изнанки - «Бездна детства»Cat.# … DNA 22
Release Date … 09.09.2008
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … mp3 CBR 320 kbps

Raw and deep dark ambient soundscapes hide myriads of sound fragments – human voices, concrete noises and synthetic dissonances, creating hundreds of craters leading into the Inside, into subconsciousness, into the dark abyss of childhood.

Child’s fears and worries, early trauma – all leave never-healing scars. Those scars are steps that lead to the cliff over the Great Unknown.
Theme of the album is child encountering death.

At first he senses it vaguely like a deja vu in a hustle of an early morning, on his way to school at predawn hours, in the cold air after the warmth of his bed; he feels it’s intangible presence in dark corners of his room and his heart fills with primordial fear. And then death comes into his home and he sees it in its greatness and horror.

Recorded in 2007.
Mastered by Seclorum.

Tracklisting:

  1. Письма с изнанки – Зима. Понедельник. Утро. (Winter. Monday. Morning.) (23:07)
  2. Письма с изнанки – Тёмные углы (Dark Corners) (5:13)
