Altarmang :: Void (Cyclic Law)

The buzzing cavernous drones, circular effects and mystical power vibes will definitely catch your attention. Altarmang is a project by one regular Cyclic law artist: Pär Boström (Kammarheit, Cities Last Broadcast). I’m quite familiar with his early works, at that time I reached Par for a book about dark ambient music but which finally haven’t […]

Igloo Magazine :: Best of 2016

While other sites might fight to get 1000s down to 50 or 20, at Igloo HQ we’ve refused to don the hair shirt of reducing respective contributor lists to a consensual singularity, in favour of doing justice to diversity via lists that range far and wide, and a congruent preference for letting their multiplicity simply […]

Kammarheit :: The Nest (Cyclic Law)

The Nest doesn’t give of itself lightly, requiring deep diving, depths-sounding—of cavernous resonance, of bleakness and sustenance—to retrieve ungenerous pearls. Dark Ambient. Sometimes a great notion. A kind of a marmite of electronic music—enthralling or appalling. The art in it is such that the artless is worse than useless—posturing sub-goth doom-mongering. Pondering what turns base metal […]

Day Before Us :: Misty Shroud of Regrets (Rage in Eden)

Misty Shroud of Regrets is predominantly neo-classical-informed ambience, whose mournful lyricism is aligned with a certain strain of transcendent Old European pessimism. Day Before Us is a project curated by Philippe Blache—incidentally, an Igloo contributor, who claims inspiration from ‘odd literature, ghostly presence, angelology’ for his ‘antipop-cinematic-nocturnal-melancholic soundscapes.’ The French artist has worked through ‘solemn soundscaping […]

Soriehl delivers an outstanding and tumultuous collection of demonic-entrancing soundscapes made of deep sonorous synth waves, monochordal choir laments, isolationist detached guitar patterns, breathy murmuring messages and a plethoric of echoing-metallic sound effects and others noisy “empirical” resonances. [Release page] If Cold Meat Industry and Loki Foundation are among the European labels that provided the […]

Mulm :: The End of Greatness (Cyclic Law)

This is a well-tempered, living and breathing soundscaping; indeed, one track is even called “Hope.” All of it is monochrome, but refreshingly for the genre, if discreetly, melodious. It sounds proud, dignified, down-to-earth, except for the closing, title track, which is airy and sacral. [Release page] Russian Medieval historian Aron Gurevich preferred to study Scandinavian […]
