Immundus is a Dark Ambient project from Norway and is Inspired by the many dark aspects of life, its mystery, the horror and the force&sounds ofmother nature with the intention to create a bizzare eerie, haunting atmosphere.
Looking at the cd artwork being 95% black, with a window pane loking out onto trees on a bleak autumn evening(on reverse) and you just know that this is an indication of what atmosphere contains within.
The only way to listen to Dark Ambient is during the hours of darkness, in pitch blackness, via headphones, Incense burning and sat on the floor crossed legged in a meditative state of conciousness.
There are no vocals whatsoever on this release.
What we have here is truly "haunting" mesmerising, unsettling,distressing, psychlogical torment!!! This is Dark Ambient of a VERY high quallity, and this is the stuff that I listen to and adore.
Imagine yourself having a long walk in a thick wood or forest, alone.........you have strayed from the path and you are walking deeper and further into the unknown.Its getting dark very quick, and before long, you realise you are lost.
THIS IS IMMUNDUS!!!
Disturbing, nightmarish, unsettling, haunting.
Stand out tracks or me personally are "Black roses for the dead" and "Candles".
This is an absolutely ESSENTIAL release and I highly reccomend this to anyone who really appreciates Dark Ambient/Dungeon muzic.
