Hymnambulae - Orgelhuset (2016)

Band: Hymnambulae
Album title: Orgelhuset
Release date: 15 May 2016
Label: Hypnagoga Press

Hymnambulae is the product of siblings Par and Asa Bostrom. The Swedish duo release Orgelhuset as the first album on their nascent label, Hypnagoga Press. Par's magnificent grasp on sound manipulation, field recordings, and deep emotive drones is quite obvious throughout Orgelhuset. It seems that Asa has brought a very mystical, warm and more personal aspect into the fold, giving a perfect balance to Par's often cold and desolate musical output. These opposing forces naturally feed right into the concept of Orgelhuset. The siblings seem to speak from many places without ever leaving the organ house. The dichotomy of these opposites coming together brings a strong sense of mystery enshrouded in mysticism. Cold winds are felt as they penetrate the organ house while there is at once a warmth radiating from within. Fans of ambient, dark ambient, and neo-classical will all find aspects of this album to embrace and enjoy.

Band: Merciful Nuns
Album title: Thelema VIII
Release date: 4 March 2016
Label: Solar Lodge

Merciful Nuns were always masters in creating huge vibrant atmospheres, as well we were used to hear that in many of Garden Of Delight albums, especially in the second era of the band, classics like Apocryphal I: The Fallen and Apocryphal II: The Faithful, come in mind at first place. But in Thelema VIII there's kind of a dark ambient vibe implemented in the background, and at this place the pioneers of the genre Lustmord come in mind. The new offering of Merciful Nuns is nothing but a masterpiece. Not so many times an album with its unrelenting pathos has the power to make even your heart and even the bones tremble. Thelema VIII is a sonic journey through radiant dimensions of mind, into all things occult, it's some kind of a cinematic dark goth/ambient/rock adventure with a constant dreary presence that awakens the inner dark thoughts of the listener, yet is full of emotion and it holds a seductive character needed to fully embrace darkness and light of higher truth behind this concept.
