Red Fog – «Exodus To The Land Of The Drone»

Red Fog - «Exodus To The Land Of The Drone»Cat.# … DNA 162
Release Date … 21.10.2014
Genre … Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

«Exodus To The Land Of The Drone» looks like another move in Red Fog’s drifting between severe uneasy drone ambient and something like «micro-sound» ambient which was presented in previous (for DNA Production) Red Fog’s work called «Zone Of Avoidance».

The title speaks for itself: here Red Fog turns to his trademark, to the lengthy recurrent loops of heavy-breathing drones which soak everything around with low-frequency rumbling. Sometimes these drone layers find themselves massively pierced with crisp micro sounds of industrial origin. Sometimes they overwhelm, stun, deafen with multiply resonated hum fragments well-mixed and thrown straight in your face.

Each track presents its own sound snapshot of an inorganic world living its life quietly or loud. Find there soundtracks to various processes which occur right now in a tiny stone, metal piece, liquid drop or in a vast star system.

Tracklisting:

  1. Red Fog – Castle Of Condensation (17:03)
  2. Red Fog – The Quiet Magnetar (16:14)
  3. Red Fog – Volans Disruption (14:38)
  4. Red Fog – Cinder Petals (18:24)

Accasari – «Mare Fungus»

Accasari - «Mare Fungus»Cat.# … DNA 155
Release Date … 14.02.2014
Genre … Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Unevenly pulsing guitar chords and monotonous but vibrant drone ambient layers merge in two long pieces presented by Accasari in the new work called «Mare Fungus». Along with mushrooms on the cover, the title comes as straight as provocative. But there is no any traditional psychedelic features, only resonant drones that eventually develop in big and complex sound tangle where some layers may come in resonance and then cause a deeper immersion in these sound structures.

Peter L. – guitar, bass, sound processing.
Ilya Matsevich – additional guitar on «Ascomycota».
Kol Belov – cover art.

Tracklisting:

  1. Accasari – Ascomycota (15:38)
  2. Accasari – Mare Fungus (32:20)

Igl00 – «Untitled Scenes»

Igl00 - «Untitled Scenes»Cat.# … DNA 153
Release Date … 01.12.2013
Genre … Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

Ukrainian isolationist project Igl00 presents his début work «Untitled Scenes» in which he offers three ultra-quiet but very deep drone ambient tracks. They are tranquil and serene and look like slow journey on the edge between dream and reality. Here the mind resets its state and clear residual data to be ready to get consciousness to sleep. No people nor machines are there, just isolation and tranquillity.

Despite cold images used in virtual cover, «Untitled Scenes» isn’t too static and offers a lot of warm sound. Slight movements in the air, vague tapping, remote and barely audible sounds – all these dying day’s melodies form a proper ambience for relaxation and meditation.

«Untitled Scenes» is a part of «Short Drones» series – «Short Drones Part XIII».

Tracklisting:

  1. Igl00 – Scene 1 (05:29)
  2. Igl00 – Scene 2 (08:12)
  3. Igl00 – Scene 3 (02:35)

Release Date … 09.09.2013
Genre … Drone Ambient, Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC Lossless

With full-length work «Gegenstrom» System Morgue continues his journey through territories of raw and powerful drone ambient which was started in previous short work «lvx.abyssvs».

Now it returns: deep as a sea, hollow and a bit noisy sound with low-frequency waves of chaotically pulsing drones and long loops of heavily processed guitar riffs wandering beneath the surface.

Tracklisting:

  1. System Morgue – Liegeplatz (06:06)
  2. System Morgue – Atlantik (27:00)
  3. System Morgue – Blitzlichter (03:05)
