Listen in the dark

The title is a recommendation on how to listen the new Axis of Perdition record, titled Urfe. A dark ambient gem, obviously influenced by soundtrack music. In fact the music in Urfe acts like the soundtrack accompanying the narrator (the british actor Leslie Simpson), and creating a horror filled atmosphere.

This is a two disc affair, the first one (Grief of the unclean) based on electronic ambient and drone sounds, while the second one (The great unwashed) is equally based on electronic and guitar ambient.
The darkness the band evokes is trully admirable and has to be heard to be believed. And I think I traced a bit of Pink Floyd lurking somewhere in the guitar leads.

Excelent atmospheric music to listen in the dark.
