Works of this genre often do best when they express as artefacts, connecting with the programmatic project, fostering a livid central theme. Eg Lustmord "..The Black Stars Hang" and Time Machines' eponymous release. Ordeal joins these works. It's not just "dark ambient" music, all floating form and drone . Shrine turns this work into so much more: into a beautiful, enveloping, engulfing tone poem, which somehow recalls to me Smetana's Die Moldau more than anything. Exquisitely mixed.
