Atrium Carceri - "Phrenitis" [Cold Meat Industry]
The most recent Atrium release. He is still going strong after all these albums. This is him doing his usual but lots more piano than anything prior. I am really digging it and can't stop listening.
Ulf Soderberg - "Vindarnas Hus" [Slow Moon]
Ulf Soderberg (aka Sephiroth) makes some of the best "tribal" ambient ever. I mean tribal in the most ancient scandinavian way possible. Seriously amazing stuff, definitely worth seeking out.
Lamia Vox - "...Introductio" [Ewers Tonkunst/Indiestate Distribution]
I love the Lamia Vox track on the recent Saur Maas compilation from Kalpamantra, so I went and bought her full length. It's pretty droney but very dark and I am liking it a lot.
This Morn Omina - "The Drake Equation" [Ant-Zen]
I still haven't gotten the new album (apparently sold out in a lot of places in the states), but I keep this one on repeat. Such amazing tribal industrial with fantastic production. This is a short album, but very worth having, every song hits hard.
Subheim - "Approach" [Tympanik]
One of the most beautiful, dark, downtempo/IDM albums. It's not super complex, but it is perfect at what it is. A must own for fans of dark beautiful music.
Arovane - "Icol Diston" [DIN]
This is a CD compilation of his old vinyls. One of my favorite IDM releases ever. Arovane absolutely kills it. This one and Atol Scrap are must own for IDM fans.
Ametsub - "The Nothings of the North" [Mille Plateaux]
Really beautiful clicky / glitchy downtempo stuff with bits of future jazz and IDM. Reminds me of playing Katamari Damancy. Smooth and dreamy sounding, yet still ultra complex and layered.
