  • garas Hey! Here is another great drone album I've just discovered:
    September 4 02:13 PM
  • garas Hi! I think you'd be interested in this one: kinda minimalistic, dark and very sinister drone album.

  • neekafat It really was damn awesome, thanks for recing it!
    July 28 02:12 AM
  • neekafat My Cult of Luna write-up is done!

  • garas Oh yes, that is good! I've seen so many awesome videos with tape looping, and underwater microphones etc. it is very expensive tho... If I'd be rich I'd experiment with such things as well, but so far VSTs were good enough.

  • garas Thanks for checking out Dungeon Ghosts! A 3.15 is way better than what I expected, haha! (I made it for DnD campaigns as background music.)My main weapon is a Korg nanoKey2, and VST synths. On Borvlt I used the famous Synth1 virtual analog synth, and forged my own sound.

  • garas Ahoy! I've finished a new dungeon synth/drone album! I tried to capture the atmosphare how a haunted dungeon might sound like, and I hope you're interested! :]

  • 50iL Sure! hehe
    July 10 07:11 AM
  • garas Very respectful soundoff, I'm glad you (mostly) liked that album. :]
    July 9 10:45 PM
  • 50iL Hmm, I'd actually jam Szell's 4th and Abbado's 5th; Szell's 4th is widely regarded as highly dependable and Abbado's 5th is my personal favorite. Let me give you a hot tip for RYM: next to the rating is the number of times the release has been rated. For solid, widely accepted takes, try listening to a version that is highly rated AND has a bunch of ratings. Often, these releases are bolded, but that may not be the case. Best of luck!

  • garas Hi! :] I think I discovered something you would like a lot. The best drone/ambient album I heard this year: That's some real exciting stuff.
    July 8 03:32 PM
  • 50iL Oh yeah, that's probably the best part of the piece. Love its foreboding nature. Just wait for the fifth's first movement... oof.

  • JLR2DEG Hey is a link to the Gospel Lived EP. -
    June 27 10:32 PM
  • Asura14 ye, I had actually never heard of her before that album... Still gotta check her other projects
    June 27 03:25 PM
  • Asura14 Just checked out the SUMAC album, didn't dislike it but it's definitely not my style of harsh vocals... thanks anyway dude m/ I'll probably give the album another listen tho

  • Sniff Hit me up if you can't find it and maybe we can sort it out
    June 27 10:17 AM
  • Sniff could be slsk? i don't remember
    June 26 08:08 PM
  • 50iL lol yeahhhh, it does have its benefits though. Allows a single piece of music to be much more versatile, but saturates the classical genre soooooo much lmao
    June 26 06:31 PM
  • 50iL Hmmm, general consensus is that the Jascha Horenstein version is the way to go; I've heard that one and the Bernstein recording and, uh, I'd definitely rec the first lol.
    June 26 03:12 PM
  • 50iL Actually, his first is also really damn great haha, check if you can
    June 26 05:34 AM
  • 50iL Oh yeah; Bernstein's first is solid, but I much prefer his take on the second. The third is, uh, not the best with him lol. Probably his worst Mahler, even. It's just toooooo long mannnn
    June 26 05:26 AM
  • 50iL Oh s***, hold up; you can't type in "keep me u p d a t e d" on this without that happening
    June 25 05:40 AM
  • 50iL lol, I meant keep med, derped halfway through the sentence lol
    June 25 05:05 AM
  • 50iL Honestly, RYM is your friend for that. Search up the composer, ctrl f the piece, click on it, and you get a BUNCH of recordings with their according ratings. It helped me SO MUCH, honestly. Best of luck! Keep med, if you wish.
    June 24 05:49 PM
  • 50iL If you are checking Mahler's symphonies in order, I commend you. It is an experience like no other. I loooove Bernstein's 2nd, but maybe that's just me. It is VERY intense, VERY romantically executed, but I found it very fitting.
    June 24 05:22 AM
  • garas Hahaha :] I'll see! Maybe for my poor dungeon synth project. I really want to do black metal, but I only have like two very early-stage songs, and just the guitars...
    June 12 04:54 PM
  • garas I'm glad you liked it! I can find bands like Larry just very rarely becasue of this combination: black metal with drone ambient. Much more bands should follow this formula, imo.
    June 12 06:18 AM
  • garas A Glimpse of Glory was pretty cool, but the too much usage of field recordings kinda killed me every song. Otherwise, very chilly music! Reminded me a lot to Darkeater. Thanks for the rec :]
    June 11 06:13 PM
  • garas I can feel you. I have tons of recs from many sources! But until this is my biggest problem, I can't complain :]
    June 10 06:39 AM
  • garas Thanks!! No, never heard about Lustre at all - added to my checklist! In return: check out Scary Larry, black metal with sweet ambient/drone interludes! I hope you'd dig it.(
    June 9 11:03 PM
  • garas Haha! :] I just always found something else to check, I wasn't that patient listener back then. But now: I truly enjoy it!! (plus, since I have huge affinity to dungeon synth, Paysage fits very well to my taste)
    June 9 06:48 AM
  • garas Ahoy! Yes I am! Shame on me - I never paid attention to that band until now. But I just love it, very inspirig.
