    The Night That Hell Broke Loose The Night That Hell Broke Loose
    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.

    Some works just stand out instantly above the rest and it's hard to articulate exactly why. This takes me on a cerebral high, very subtle, very strange. A rollercoaster of effects and momentary hallucinations ending in an involuntary moan emanating directly from the brainstem.

    Those Endless Fields of Rust Those Endless Fields of Rust
    Deeply redolent, melancholic, euphoric; evokes waves of Sehnsucht deep in the soul.

    Tears Tears
    This album is awesome! Where a lot of synthwave/retrowave stuff I listen to tends to sound somewhat anaemic or metallic, due to a preponderance of brittle rhythm sections and keyboard riffing aiming at a minimal sound, what makes Atlas stand out are its honey-dripping lush orchestral keyboard scapes crafted around gorgeous chordal arrangements hanging off a backbone of rich, deep rhythm and bass. Literally takes me right back to 1984. It's like a time machine!
