Atrium Carcari * Souyuan (cd 2008)

SouyuanCMI labeled this release as “dark ambient”, but Atrium Carcari is pushing the boundaries of that genre in that case. There are ambient parts, but Atrium Carcari has added ‘uncommon sounds’, rhythms and samples that makes this release sound different from your usual dark ambient release. In fact, this release is so ‘strange’ for a dark ambient release, that I do not even yet know if I really like it or not. It is refreshing for sure and it is always good when something new happens.

Atrium Carceri * Cellblock (cd 2003 cold meat industry)

This cd is advertised by saying that the man behind this solo project studied classical music. This doesn’t have much to do with the music though. “Cellblock” is a cd for people that long for that old CMI-dark ambient sound. Atrium Carceri reminds of the tranquil parts of Sephiroth, but also has its own style. Dark creepy ambient with very minor orchestral influences and here and there a sample. Not too original, but also not badly done.
