Phonothek - Lost In Fog (2016)

Band: Phonothek
Album title: Lost In Fog
Release date: 17 May 2016
Label: Cryo Chamber

The Phonothek debut appears to be one more step in the expansion of the Cryo Chamber image. On Lost In Fog, we hear a lot more overtly musical elements than are often present. The dichotomy gives the entirety of Lost In Fog a brilliantly dramatic and cinematic edge. The cinematic aspect is further displayed in the choice of track titles. It seems as though we are being guided through a story, and each title gives a bit of a hint into the narrative. As with many dark ambient releases, there are enough hints here to suggest a theme and a progression of scenes. Yet luckily these hints are not commanding enough to steal the sense of mystery and discovery from the listener. Phonothek prove that there is still quite a lot more to offer in this area, much of which we may not even realize is possible until someone comes along and pushes the boundaries just a bit further.

Band: Dronny Darko & protoU
Album title: Earth Songs
Release date: 28 July 2015
Label: Cryo Chamber

Dronny Darko, the drone ambient artist from Kiev (Ukraine) is known for his abyssal drones, combined with eerie field-recordings, samples and voices. His previous release, Outer Tehom (released in November 2014 by Cryo Chamber), was quite spine-chilling. Earth Songs is a collaboration between Dronny Darko and protoU, a new-comer to the Cryo Chamber label. Earth Songs follows our planet earth from the first explosion, 13.8 billion years ago, to humanity’s final ascent from Earth in 2135. This is a huge change in direction from Dronny Darko's last release, showing the dynamics and promise not only of Dronny Darko, but also of protoU. Dronny Darko & protoU leave us wondering what will happen next! Earth Songs is a dynamic and highly recommended dark ambient album for those who prefer something more relaxing, but still packing a punch.
