PICTURE ANN RELEASES THE NIGHT AND SILENCE EP

A lengthy ambient-inspired piece titled Night and Silence has just been released digitally via all the usual music retailers out there.

PICTURE ANN RELEASE THE ‘WE MOURNED YOU’ DIGITAL EP

The 5-track EP entitled We Mourned You, which is the latest output by the weird post-rockers and formless noise-makers known as Picture Ann, is a musical exploration of disillusion consisting of thick and dense soundscapes that create an oppressive and claustrophobic feel.

SONISK BLODBAD – The Shores of Oblivion

RELEASE YEAR: 2022  BAND URL: Sonisk Blodbad – Startside | Facebook The Norwegian ensemble known as Sonisk Blodbad is an intriguing one and the richly textured new opus of theirs entitled “The Shores of Oblivion” is as dark, haunting, and delightfully experimental as one could have hoped for.

I love…

Musically speaking, the four compositions arguably veer more toward minimalism and ambient music than previous outputs by the cursed outfit…
