Edge of October – Darkness Grows in Empty Places

If indeed Darkness Grows In Empty Places, then this release is possibly as dark as they come. A bleak soundscape ekes out of a backdrop so sparse that it ceases being minimal and borders on non-existent. This great, empty sound drones with a melancholy that is simultaneously dismal and rich, like a tortured wail drifting across a foggy meadow at night; unseen in the hazy moonlight, yet frighteningly real nonetheless.

A near perfect example of minimal, dark ambient, that could only have been served better if it had been served longer: a jaunt too short for the depth of feeling that it evokes.
