Ancient Tundra are a musical project from the United States that plays dark ambient and this is a review of their 2009 album "The Desolation Of An Artic Landscape" which was released by Dead Moon Records.
The album begins with nature sounds and dark ambient synths which also use of variety of many different sounding keys and the recording gets more epic and atmospheric as times goes on by as well as adding drones into certain sections of the music as well as a small amount of black metal vocals being used on a couple of songs and each song has a different sound to it while also remaining true to dark ambient.
Song themes cover nature and darkness along with one of the song titles being in Norwegian, while the production has a very dark sound with the synths being very powerful sounding as well as most of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Ancient Tundra are a very great sounding atmospheric, dark ambient project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bring Forth Winter" Nostalgic Depression" "Triumphant Nature" and "Journey Across The Barren lands". 8/5 out of 10.
