Lustmord “The Place where the Black Stars Hang” LP
Lustmord’s “The Place where the Black Stars Hang” is a definite must-have in any dark ambient fan’s collection. After spanning a 20 year career and appearing on various movie soundtracks, collaborations and recording various LP’s and EP’s Lustmord definitely understands the concept of dark ambience. The vibe I get off of this album is very space oriented or even cemetery oriented at some points. It gives the feeling of being in a crypt or being lost in the portal of space and time wondering if there is any escape. I really like the sounds used on this album. They put you in a trance and give you many different feelings than just one when it comes to listening to these types of records. The added chants and wind instruments definitely make a difference as well!! Lustmord still continues to make music, do collaborations and works also on soundtracks. If you appreciate dark soundscapes this release is for you.
