I am delighted to announce that my new article on underrated dark ambient albums from the past decade is now published on I Die: You Die, an outstanding and highly respected music blog that I’ve followed since its inception in 2011. The editors called my knowledge of the genre “encyclopedic” and referred to me as an expert on the subject. I don’t think I’d go quite that far myself, but since I’ve become fairly well known in my local Pagan community as the “go-to” person for dark ritual ambient recommendations and am working on a book manuscript on the subject (Endarkenment: The Esoteric in Dark Ambient Music and Culture), I think it’s safe to say I have a thing or two to say about it.
If you have enjoyed my previous series of posts here on dark ambient (Dark Ritual Ambient: A Primer for the Dark Pagan, Vols. one, two, and three), this piece will be right up your alley. There is even a brand new track from Skadi, now featured on my I Die: You Die article exclusively, courtesy of the artist. Enjoy!
