darkcasey Book of the Black Earth is a fine dark ambient album, one that takes the listener from sun to shade, from scorched to chilled, and from open horizons to sealed chambers. Favorite track: Inner Sanctum.
L.Tech thumbnail
L.Tech "Book of the Black Earth" is indeed a magical portal to an ancient time full of enchantment and esoteric mystery.

Ager Sonus has composed a captivating album that is dark, but not gloomy; it is mysterious, but not threatening; it is deep and atmospheric, but not chilling.

This album is in fact, a sublime journey into an enigmatic antiquity that you will return to over and over again. Excellent! Favorite track: Apophis.
Spirit thumbnail
Spirit I have purchased a lot of albums from Cryochamber. All the artists are top notch musicians for those dark nights of the soul. Some of my favorites include Council of Nine and Dead Melodies. A lot of these albums are best played at night. This is the first album I can see being played during the day in the sun, its dark but a ray of hope shimmers through a darkened chasm in this. There is an ancient soul in this gem. Favorite track: Inner Sanctum.

This Is Darkness If writhing in malefic darkness is your goal, this album will give ample reason to keep returning to its haunted and dusty tales of ancient antiquity.

The old leather bound book smells of crusted honey. Flecks of dust and dried parchment rain from it's interior as you open it. Ancient hieroglyphs and diagrams point the way to the obsidian gate.

A year later you walk through long forgotten caverns with lantern lit. You've finally found the underground lake. A tired face stares back at you from it's reflection. The air taste sweet down here and in the distance flutes echo of a buried civilization. The feeling of dread washes over you. This is your last chance to get her back from the underworld.

Dark bass drone rumbles in the caverns under long forgotten cities. Ager Sonus has succeeded in creating an Egyptian backdrop that is accentuated with flutes and atmospheric layering. Occult and ethereal, this album is for lovers of Necromancy and the unexplored ruins beneath the sands of Egypt.
