A New Terror Born in Death is the latest opus from the atmospheric dark ambient doom bearer, Noctilucant (Joseph Mlodik). Where Joe has been carving out a niche in the dark ambient community with his foreboding cinematic compositions for several years, he brings us a new near hour-long seamless drone piece. Segmented into two halves, A New Terror Born in Death lulls you into a morbid trance as it entrenches you amidst the decaying architecture of a pallid planet.
While this album does not carry forward the post-apocalyptic story Noctilucant has crafted in his releases Back to the Mud, Oblivion to You All, and Bleak and Drained of Colour, A New Terror Born in Death offers a wayward wandering across ashen-coated fields of grass and derelict asphalt architecture, pockmarked by still-life moments of blissful serenity.
This cassette release is limited to 30 hand-numbered copies. It is professionally duplicated and the cassette shells are imprinted with Noctilucant’s logo on either side. Orders also come with a custom From Corners Unknown sticker.
You can stream A New Terror Born in Death to your heart’s content in the embedded player above or you can stream it on the From Corners Unknown Records Bandcamp page. Digital purchases cost $1.
