xanderdeg Spooky, dark. I really feel the town of Murken Hollow in the music. Favorite track: Chasing Shadows (Part I).
DANIIEL thumbnail
DANIIEL Inspired noir ambient by a visionary of narrative soundscapes. This album displays shades of Fincher and Lynch films, with the precis of a modern noir horror story. Inspired and brilliant. Favorite track: Chasing Shadows (Part I).

This Is Darkness Murken Hollow might be the best work yet by the very talented man behind Dead Melodies. His debut is still one of my favorite albums on Cryo Chamber to this day. And, it seems that the magic still continues, years later. Thanks Tom and Simon for another masterwork in cinematic darkness! Favorite track: All That's Left Behind.
First time I’ve left a review on Bandcamp - long time follower of CC. I had to post a review for this album. It is fantastic. This is refined, dark noir at its best. I thoroughly enjoyed the album, great to hear Zenjungle back on DM’s album since Anthropocene. I thought Kim Guy’s vocals were excellent. Polaroid is probably my personal favorite, but the entire album is spot on. Favorite track: Polaroid.

Dead Melodies presents us his new dark ambient noir album Murken Hollow

What actually happened that cold and misty November remained a mystery, but the cases were connected, that much was clear.

Ten murders across the city and a myriad of frankly surreal circumstances and evidence that made no sense. At each crime scene strange piles of singed black flakes surrounded a body laid out with no obvious cause of death. Nearby mirrors cast no reflection and looked like endless black pools of nothingness that almost hurt to look into. And in the pocket of each victim, a cryptic letter with inverted writing and a ticket stub from the sleepy town of Murken Hollow.

The detective poured the last dregs of a bottle into a coffee mug while drawing on a cigarette, a permanent look of despair wrinkled his brow. The dingy office was smoky and dark, half lit from the street lights beyond the frosted windows so the shadows hung long and moved with the traffic. On the wall an elaborate pin board littered in string and polaroids in an attempt to make sense of it all, but with no prints or sign of intruders the distant town of Murken Hollow was the only possible lead.

And then from under a pile of papers on the messy desk, the phone rang... Another murder.

CD and and Digital Download comes with a 16 page booklet
