Alice M. I tried quite a bunch of dark ambient artists while searching for the style that suited me the most, and few made me feel as many things as Cryobiosis.

Mark Up until now I never listened to one of Cryobiosis music before, but listening to this 3 years after it's release made me an instant fan of the tales he tells us. I find myself in ancient, alien ruins, exploring the depths. Who needs television with albums like this?
This Is Darkness

This Is Darkness Cryobiosis' debut on Cryo Chamber is an instant classic in the dark ambient genre. Travel to the coldest darkest depths in this masterful post-apocalyptic soundscape. Favorite track: Murkfall.

ByAutopsy 'Between ruins’ must be considered a must-have album for all dark-ambient listeners. It invites us to a blasphemous katabasis or descent, in which we will find empty walls, catacombs of bygone and secret civilizations, slimy walls and lugubrious corridors whispering our perdition. Cryobiosis continues opening our senses, blackening and shadowing our minds. The content of this album could be expressed as follow: What it was should not be. And what it is should never have come. Favorite track: Murkfall.

Robert C. Kozletsky Within Ruins is one of my personal favorite albums released on Cryo Chamber. It's a complex and incredibly atmospheric work of dark ambient full of rich details and strange textures. Definitely one to play while the power is out during a bad snow storm walking the streets. Cryobiosis blackens the world around you and all you can see is a dystopian future. And somehow this is strangely beautiful. I can't wait to see where Cryobiosis leads us to next. Favorite track: Frigid Silence.

Within Ruins mixes dirty industrial sounds with massive reverbs. Piano weaves history of civilizations come and gone. The scent of virginity slain on dilapidated altars. Drops of water echoing through huge chasms. Underground caverns kept sealed through generations. All these elements combine to serve a visual feast through auditory means. It invites you to explore the unknown and forgotten.
