DistantMemories “(July 1998)Raccoon City Times The Raccoon City Police Department is currently investigating a string of brutal and bizarre murders on outskirts of town. Local residents have reported seeing strange sickly looking figures on the streets in the midnight hour in their neighborhoods. Blood curdling screams and howling have been reported throughout the night as well. Our only hope is that the mystery can be solved, for it is fear that prowls on us now, times are looking grim in Raccoon City.” -D Favorite track: A Lonely Strain.

CyhAnide Everything I love about dark ambient can be found in this album. So soft and resonant at times, with touches of prominent instrumentation to call you back in, Onyx is just...relaxing and beautiful and dark. The titular track, Onyx, even has echoes of Alan Parson's Project's Edgar Alan Poe album. Not sure if this was intentional, but it was still surprising yet wonderfully executed. I'd actually enjoy more ambient with this throwback feel. Favorite track: Onyx.

3 veteran producers in the genre, Apocryphos, Kammarheit & Atrium Carceri, collaborate on this behemoth of an album. Each utilizing each others strengths to bring forth a dark and emotional ride through distant memories.

Onyx is a soundscape journey related to the reflection of dispirited memories and obscure sorrows felt by mankind. With the multitude of techniques used by each artist, it also reflects the rich history of the dark ambient genre and how it has progressed through the decades.

The signature analogue darkness of gargantuan caves of Kammarheit is combined with the sacral and emotional layering of Apocryphos and the rhythmical bass throbbing and isolated pianos of Atrium Carceri.

This album was created by cross linking 3 studios in Oregon (US), Pennsylvania (US) and Umeå(Sweden). It took over 3800 lines of studio notes to finalize the album.
