Musicformessier is ambient soundscape, tagged shoegaze too, but I’m not hearing that. Plieades is mood music, a good album to listen to on an overcast grey day, 90%.
I’m not the only one to say it, but there have been almost no good metal albums released this year, so in my wanderings through the blogosphere I came across an ambient/doom band, Svarte Greiner. Ambient/doom/soundscape, a solo project of some Norwegian guy that is somewhat well-known because of another band he is in that, I haven’t heard of either.
Dark, creepy, doom influenced soundscape, well produced and slow. Intense mood music, the type of album that is to be played on a dark, rainy night with a horror movie playing on mute… While mood-music to the extreme, it still rates an 83% because it is excellent, at certain times.
