Terra Sancta - Sunken | Buried | Forgotten
Dark Ambient Imagine a cold, damp and foggy night. Our bold investigators make their way through a neighborhood where every single light is turned off. Somewhere out there in the dark lurks horrors that no man can imagine. In the background of this movie, to enhance the ambience. We hear chosen parts of Terra Sancta's 'Sunken | Buried | Forgotten. Terra Sancta's music, labeled as Dark Ambient, is probably a clean example of the genre. The music is not of the kind you'd bring out on a party. But to provide ambience in a scary location (did anyone say halloween party?) or as background on a small get together? In those cases this kind of music is probably spot on.

Terra Sancta manages to provide feeling in their music. The atmospheric sound triggers imagination and you can quite easily see why they named their songs like they did. In the song Sunken, you really get the feeling of beeing surrounded by water. The sound and noises in this track hints of the sounds and noises that one might hear while under water. On the other side, the track Buried gives a slightly constricted feeling and gives the impression of beeing a bit more mellowed (yeas, even for ambient) with sounds that hint of lamentation and sadness.

All together I find it very interesting to listen to these tracks. I can't claim to be a huge ambient fan, but I appreciate the genre and even if it doesn't find it's way on to my regular playlists I bring out some tracks now and then to provide ambience.
