Uruk is also the name of several musical acts, from psy trance to black metal and dark ambient. Not to be confused with Uruk-Hai by the way. The Uruk we're about to dig in to is a cooperative project, formed by Massimo Pupillo (Zu, Triple Sun) and Thighpaulsandra (Coil).
The album is one 38 minutes lasting track, which basically is a massive array of drones, soundscapes and eerie samples. The overall feeling is dark, challenging and at times a bit uneasy but it continuously manages to remain interesting. This is one of those long, narrative dark ambient anthems I love so much. For a writer like me, music like this is extremely welcome. It showcases scenery, storylines and events, which is very inspirational. Fans of Coil can easily trust Uruk to deliver the goods and the atmosphere they crave so much. I suspect the same goes for all dark ambient and drone fans out there. So yes, this is another highly recommended album from a highly trustworthy label that Consouling Sounds is.
