Okkulta - Horrors

Record: 2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1311.0189
EBM, Industrial

The quarry is more spacious inside than it seems at first glance outside. For a hundred meters goes the straight wide hall that gradually turns into a winding narrow tunnel. Daylight doesn't reach here, and you're left to your own illumination means. Beware losing the vigilance, because metallic constructions are only a part of danger, - you may easily fall into a bottomless abyss, if you take a wrong step near the edge. Try to throw something into it and listen if it ever resound. While you follow the rail path, the darkness becomes heavier and more impenetrable, sometimes almost physically perceptible. This surrounding fills your essence with overwhelming sense of fear. Horror begins...

Saty - Melting Points

In a chaotic world of abstract objects there might be something. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to find something interesting in micro-level.

Okkulta - Lunar Sanctus

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1302.0146
EBM, Electro, Trance

Melancholic tunes with romantic atmosphere and some hidden aggression inside. The sanctuary of neon light, which covers all around. It is buried in severe lands that protects it from strangers. Only the endurant reaches and gains the warm light of fire trees. All that you need is a damn confidence in yourself.

Saty - Stist

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1209.0097
Drone Ambient, Dark Ambient

Lengthy experiments on drones led the author to selection of the most bright and unusual component, able to catalyze the opening of fantasy spaces and special states of mind. Every composition consists of several episodes, which were created in different times and have been merged into a single chain in the final stage.

Ptarkh - Dark Position

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1205.0054
Dark Ambient, Industrial

Rustle of broken branches and fallen leaves, whisper of sad spirits, near and distant noises come along with you in the endless walk through the land of the dead. Abandoned mechanical structures corrode under the rain. Murmurous streams run under heavy-clouded skies. Only the sound of heartbeat binds the stranger with the world of living, but soon the inevitable darkness absorbs it without a trace.

Antalio - Precious Pressures

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1204.0048
EBM, Spacesynth

In the third album Antalio turns from optimistic spacesynth to darker and experimental sound with some industrial touch. Using the old soviet synthesizer Formanta and American Ensoniq, Antalio tries to make some raw and depressive sound. This time the music is pretty aggressive, but it is still melodic and fascinating, as bright as all his the works.

WMRI - Spiral Void

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1204.0042
Dark Ambient, Drone Ambient

The second EP in Black Concept Series of six. Experimental and repetitive ambient, dark in nature and gradually evolving. Slow maelstrom of cyclic drones pierced by thin threads of ghostly synth sounds pulls you into minimalistic atmosphere of an inescapable cold void spiraling deeper from nothing to nothing.

WMRI - Shelter

Record: 2008 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0032
Dark Ambient, Industrial

The album dark as the night. It is separated into two parts. First part consists of four drifting and droning tracks fading each other. Second part consists of a long complex track and shorter track that's actually a Shelter main theme. While first part is mostly based around deep low drones, surrounding sounds and minimal, except a noisy drone piece in the end, the second part is based on industrial echoes, longer piece starts with some even melodic theme and moves towards to the emotionless drift with minor drone beats and for the second section the far bell sounds appear. Shelter theme is a separate topic for discussion as it's a complete scene of factory interior: hammer-like drone beats and noise splashes give the unique feeling of a safe and dangerous place at once. The idea of noise splashes was later used once again in Wires.

Okkulta - Souls Collector

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0029
EBM, Futurepop, Trance

The first full-lenght work of Okkulta is an impressive mix of instrumental EBM, Futurepop and Trance. The story is dedicated to the Souls Collector who walks through the ancient dismal catacombs, trapping thoughtless visitors and gathering their souls. If you like dynamic and symphonic industrial music, you surely must let the Souls Collector get your soul!

Ptarkh - Страх (Fear)

Record: 2010 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0019
Dark Ambient, Industrial, Noise

This play tells that the world has become at the brink of nuclear war, deterrence was the general practice, however some missiles have reached their targets. The greater part of the narration is the track UnAmerica, which opens a technogenic zone of high radiation in front of us. It is an image of processes destructing every life and non-organic substance. It is an energy evaporating everything it influences. Sole survivors hopelessly force through infected zones searching for a little isle of life. It is a deadly harvest of mankind progress... and there is nothing left but fear.

WMRI - Dark Passage

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1201.0006
Dark Ambient, Experimental

Imagine a dark corridor. Have you? It could have lamps of course, but the light doesn't even reach the floor, it's covered with darkness. Do you fear this situation? And if does the exit disappear at once, like it never existed? Corridor is prolonging both sides, its length - infinity. The darkness gorges the remainder of dimmed light until only the dark corridor is left. And hey, what's the rustling up there?
