Dotflac Kapnobatai is the place behind our world. It's the mist above the night. It's the gloomy tangibility after the sedated dream we like to call life.

Now you explore the truth made of boundless corridors with no exit, filled by countless imprisoned souls still struggling to accept the reality. Unintelligible speeches echo in these metallic walls, muffled by a smoke that shall never disperse.

A point of no return, where sinking into the unknown also means burying ourselves deeper into our madness. Favorite track: Stained Pipes.

Michael I have had a long-standing love for both anime and dark ambient music. This is, in my opinion, a perfectly chilling marriage of the two. It takes me to deep dark places in my mind, perfect for writing and drowning out the world. Five out of five stars in my book Favorite track: Impaled Butterfly.

Beyond the malignant jail cells and narrow asylum walls, our hidden tormentors laugh at us from a world of smoke and mirrors. Kapnobatai, the third installment from Atrium Carceri, ventures further still into the wretched world beyond the place we so resignedly inhabit, and into the sublimely unkown. Shattered yet enlightened we are thrust forcefully through the illusion of our making, to the ancient sprawling city that is the one true testament to human achievment. The visions of the Kapnobatai (those who walk in smoke) are seen, heard and felt in this genderbending and exquisitely detailed black ambient album from philosopher/visionaire/composer/artist Simon Heath.

This is a place of ancient machines, rusty walls and whispered sighs. With lavish attention to detail this profound composition of the mind wrests the listener away from the mundane, perchance never to return.
