This album by Moloch Conspiracy, released on the Italian quality label Eighth Tower Records, could be one of those epic soundtracks. In fact, parts of it have been recorded in World War One forts near Verdun, which somehow perfectly illustrates the entire atmosphere of the album. It's almost as if pieces of that angsty history have been recorded too, as if spirits of the past shines through in the music. 'Kulullû' for example is a grim piece of dark ambient with an overwhelming feeling of solitude and madness. A soldier slowly ascends into desillusion, despair and insanity. For him, all hope is lost and in the end he patiently awaits his ultimate faith while the sounds of the battlefield fade away in the distance.
See, I told you these documentaries and this music work inspiring. Other songs on this album can easily evoke other fantasies too, like ancient rituals at Stonehenge in 'Apsû' or mystifying adventures in remote forests in 'At The Entrance To The Cave'. All you really need is your imagination and this album can take you to every single mysterious world you can possibly imagine, even fearsome and haunting ones with 'The Awful Ritual'. I can say that this is an interesting album for fans of everything between Raison D'Etre, Ashtoreth and Rapoon. That would be rightful too but I guess I'll just go with the phrase "an outstanding piece of ritual dark ambient". Fans of the genre will know more than enough with that.
Still, for the late-understanders: absolute recommended album!!!
