Secret Druid Society, Restless

If you’ve heard a dark ambient album before, there will be no surprises forthcoming when you listen to Secret Druid Society’s Restless. All the standards of the genre are here in force: droning bass rumbles that rarely let up, industrial grind, hell-born hisses of demon wind . . . and very little else. There’s no real attempt to break the mold or vary the thick, claustrophobic flow that dominates the disc other than a short span of lighter ambient sound late in “Dawn Over the Deserted World.”  Even the densest of drone-based works needs to do something to hold the listener’s attention, and it’s just not happening here.

For hardcore isolationist/dark ambient fans only.

Available from First Fallen Star.
