STARLIT – Ataraxis
Evidently, if you put a couple of samples in a loop and add some random plucking of a guitar in the background, you can sell it off to record companies as dark ambient black metal. No vocal, no bass, no drums and absolutely no black metal related elements what so ever. I’m sorry, but just because some black metal bands started playing ambient music when they grew tired of their own genre back in the late 90’s, it doesn’t give anyone the right to label such music black metal. Dark Ambient is an okay label. To call this black metal is a grave misusage of a generic term in order to push this produced-in-your-own-cellar-muzak on unknowing innocent metalheads. Stay clear.
