Shrine * Nihil (cd 2014)

This is the second album of Shrine that I review. The other album was not totally convincing to me, the second is neither.
Shrine makes alright dark ambient, with many long tones which make the music it more “soundscapes”. The sound is somewhat dark, which is good in my opinion, but not really varried or moody enough to keep my attention.

Shrine * Somnia (cd 2012)

Shrine is a new name to me. This project comes from Bulgaria, has been around for a decade and “Somnia” is the third album. The album contains dark ambient. Stretched sounds, deep drones, eerie melodies, you know the deal. Some tracks are darker than others, but mostly what “Somnia” concerns is the more monotous kind of not too dark ambient. If that is what you like, you might want to listen to this album.
