legendary sound artist lustmord (brian williams) has created a sound that created and epitomizes the sub-genre of dark ambient. williams began working under that name in 1980, and since then his dark sound sculptures have been highly influential not only in music genres such as ambient and industrial, but also in film and games.
lustmord's sound investigations are exquisitely crafted manifestations of horror that balance sublime sound references with the body's natural queasiness about ultra-low frequencies. lustmord has previously extracted the eeriness from field recordings made in crypts, caves, and slaughterhouses, and combined it with occasional ritualistic incantations and the haunting wail of tibetan horns. his seamless treatments of acoustic phenomena encased in digitally expanded bass rumbles have the darkly ambient quality of nightmares that take you to the blackest of abysses.
with 'beyond' lustmord presents the second (and final) disc of extended remixes from the album [other] which was primarily released in 2009 in a limited edition of 1000 copies. the album's sinister atmosphere delivers a simply breathtaking listening experience. offering a plethora of aural images, 'beyond' stimulates thought deep within the mind within one full hour of frightening and addictive darkes ambient.
