Asylum Beyond

by Flowers for Bodysnatchers

In.Visible.Generator thumbnail
In.Visible.Generator Duncan Ritchie outs himself as a virtuos storyteller. With lightness he raises the bar compared to his earlyer work. This could be one of the greatest album in the cryo chamber history.
Anke thumbnail
Anke Brutal murder, bizarre ritualistic killings, dismembered bodies. Flowers for Bodysnatchers backs up this horrific tale of occult murder with deft perfection. Each track leads us deeper into this characters mad decent into the abyss. With a narrative that would turn the stomach of even the most hardened author. We’re presented with string arrangements that would make Hitchcock envious. Piano movements that are beautiful and haunting and analogue drones that take you far beyond the darkness. Favorite track: A Darker Rebirth.
Sarapis thumbnail
Sarapis It actually doesn't really sound like a typical dark ambient album. To me the melody is too strong, but the atmosphere and overall presentation is beyond praise...

Cold Rollins That asylum on the cover art,you will be going in there..A marvelous adventure.
This Is Darkness
This Is Darkness thumbnail
This Is Darkness When undertaken from the right perspective, horror ambient can be as entertaining as the best of horror movies. Even more so in many ways, since “seeing the evil” ultimately brings about disbelief and sometimes even humor in horror films. Horror ambient is able to bring us face to face with these horrors without ever removing the fragile veil from the listener’s imagination.

Flowers for Bodysnatchers is back with his third album on Cryo Chamber.

"On the evening of August 12th, 1968 in Fairhaven, Massachusetts antique store owner Ernest Semenov brutally murdered his wife and two daughters in what police investigators described as bizarre ritualistic killings. Their dismembered bodies had been rearranged to form what appeared to be crudely oblique symbols formed into a circle and connected by blood that he had drawn from his own slit wrists. Ernest Semenov was found slumped upright in the centre of his macabre creation by neighbours who claimed he was mumbling in a language they could not understand.
The subsequent investigation revealed an astounding amount of occult literature and objects at the Semenov residence. Belonging not just to Ernest Semenov but apparently to his wife Silvia Semenov also. Alarmingly police discovered various animal bones arranged in the same oblique manner attached to the underside of his daughters bed frames.

Declared criminally insane by the state Ernest Semenov was imprisoned in Ravenfield Asylum for treatment and rehabilitation and, placed under the care of one Dr Richard Lankin. Subsequently on the night of July 1st, 1971 Ravenfield Asylum was consumed by fire. Police discovered the horrifically burnt bodies of 68 of the 70 patients and staff savagely murdered and dismembered in a manner not dissimilar to the 1968 Semenov murders. The bodies of Dr Richard Lankin and Ernest Semenov were not believed to be among the charred remains. "
