Richard Cheesman A refreshing take on dark ambient on this excellent label. Brilliant dark sounds, eerie rhythmic elements all add to this more experimental release. My favourite track is a gradually shifting dark pulse monster which grips you and does not let go. Favorite track: The Return.
This Is Darkness

This Is Darkness The Architects is the most refined work we have seen yet from Randal Collier-Ford. A fantastic album that shows how dynamic and willing to evolve this artist is. I'm hoping the construction of his next demon will be just as epic! Favorite track: Construction of a Demon.

Rotzettazz A disturbing journey in a post-apocalyptic world filled with broken toys that refuse to fall in oblivion. Brilliant and creepy. Favorite track: Hellgate.

The Architects consists of 8 evolving tracks with a mechanical touch to each one. This album is the product of deep theory, ageless echos and murmurs of voices not heard in countless millennia.
By use of ritual techniques and unconventional sampling, Randal Collier-Ford takes us to his world of a union between the old and the new. This is an original take on Drone vs Sound Design, leaving enough room on the album to explore both concepts fully, from empty rooms of pure sound sampling and bowing techniques to tracks with bass driven drone fused with distortion and drum hits from the abyss.

Available in 24 bit FLAC
