I got into more aggressive music in the early 1990s, which was an interesting experience: Labeled both „heavy metal“ or „hard rock“ synonymously from the outside, those who were into this kind of acoustic entertainment used to have quite some nuanced understandings of sub genres and styles that needed to be kept well separated. Back then, as well, music often was about things such as style, attitude and techniques. We
Soundtrack: Red Fog – „199 Broken Light Tubes“ – exploring the world that is to be reached following the stairs down into the ruins we left behind.

Blame definitely belongs to the latter kind of artists on my list, a band/project
A few days ago, while browsing archive.org I stumbled across „Incubi Succubi“ by Daina Dieva and Svart1. Somehow, this 25-minutes beast of an ambient track has caught my attention and been played quite a couple of times ever since. Initially, this track partially reminded me of Vangelis‘ incredible soundtrack to „Blade Runner“, but „Incubi Succubi“ is way more, way stronger in some respects: The course of a nights worth of
