Get This Album: Alone In The Hollow Garden - "Nothingness Without End"
I just came across the artist Alone In The Hollow Garden on a recent compilation from the label Black Mara and decided to check out more of his catalog. This was the first release I looked into and I found it to be really engaging. Some excellent Eastern-themed ritual ambient which utilizes many traditional instruments and sound sources, while maintaining a dark and intense vibe. Unlike most ritual music, this is not minimal but is more in-your-face style with lots of elements continuously evoking new and morphing textures. Definitely something to check out for fans of Aural Hypnox and the like. It's available as a limited cassette with a handmade linocut engraving print attached, and digitally.
