Dark Ambient - Lustmord

Post  globaltrancemission on Sat Aug 21, 2010 2:20 pm

Dark atmospheric track from Lustmord with images of this planet and intro from Bergman's "Jungfrukällan". (song edited from the original 15 minute track, found on Lustmord's 'Purifying Fire')




From Wikipedia

"Brian Williams is a British electronic musician often credited for creating the dark ambient genre with albums recorded under the name Lustmord.

Williams started recording as Lustmord in 1980 before joining SPK in 1982. Lustmord has extracted field recordings made in crypts, caves, and slaughterhouses, and combined it with occasional ritualistic incantations and Tibetan horns. His treatments of acoustic phenomena encased in digitally expanded bass rumbles have a dark ambient quality."


Black Star is considered by many to be the track that epitomises Lustmords work and he is also regarded as the pioneer of dark ambient.

The genre is very isolationist and cold music that is more about inner fear and reaching into the darker side of your psyche than it is about chilling out. This is definitely an acquired taste but it has got a strong cult following.

Just after the deep horn sound you can hear a slowed down cry of anguish that chills the soul. I have read somewhere that it is in fact the last cry of an animal recorded as it died in the slaughterhouse. This music sure ain't pretty but it does have a fascination.

My own Dark Ambient tracks are not so bleak as this but I feel sure that I could easily do something along these lines......maybe one for my new album ????

Bloody Hell I sure liked it though! Dark, brooding, primordial, tribal, and pretty scary too! I was mesmerised! Not heard of Lustmord before, thanks Peter for posting this track Smile

That's the fascinating thing about this music. Its not meant to be pleasant ...it's meant to shock you into a reaction. It's just like watching a very scary horror movie where you know that you should look away ......but you can't because of your own morbid fascination.

You Tube has lots of this stuff if you hunt for it. I'll post some more here soon.

Be warned though...........some of the videos are using some very graphic dark footage to go with the music.....it's definitely not for the faint hearted Shocked
