Θ - "æ ω" (Hel Audio)

Utah based label, Hel Audio, gets Scandinavian spooky with this hour-long ride through existential despair. The ambient/drone/synth music of (what the ?? - is that a symbol I should know?) is meticulous and patient. It builds and folds and rides ennui static waves. Sixty-minutes is a long time for me to sit still and meditate on the nothingness of life...thanks a lot! The music isn't all atmosphere, but even when a "beat" appears, it descends into the depths just as fast. Its almost as if, something sorta fun wants to break free of the darkness, but just can't. This will be a tough listen for some, much enjoyed by others.
