RANDAL COLLIER-FORD - Presents Track From Upcoming Album

Oregon (USA) based dark ambient artist Randal Collier-Ford is returning on 17th November with a new album entitled Advent. The album will be released by the dark ambient powerhouse Cryo Chamber, and you can expect a worldbuilding heavy dark industrial sci-fi ambient album, which will come with a massive booklet.

"A world separated from natural law, emerged among the forests of South America. Research expeditions had shown the on-site flora and fauna to be mutated from local strains and species, with most, if not all fauna showing aggressive hostility towards expedition personnel. The atmosphere showed rich pockets of methane gases, in addition to unidentified gases composed of elements not yet discovered. This, in turn, has turn the soil black, moist with an acidic agent, yet soft as flesh under the feet.
The distance revealed multiple strange structure, many illuminated by climbing fires. Between these structures, beasts of unknown shapes shift between the oddly colored nature, barking horrible noises in their dark world. Beyond the structures, however, towering shadows stalk the skyline just outside of the light. Titans of absurd shapes, bellowing thunderous calls one could only describe as not of this world.
What sort of world has appeared so suddenly, without warning or cause? These hellish shapes define all understanding of natural order. Why are they here? And what lies among these structures, wherein beating drums shake the earth?"

The album consists of three epic tracks, and the almost 20 minutes long opener "Beckoning Absurd Shapes" is now available for streaming in its entirety. Mastering was done by Simon Heath (Atrium Carceri, Sabled Sun) and the artwork was done by Cyril Rana. The second track, "Eyes Of The Temple", features Canadian dark ambient act Northumbria.
