Old Forgotten Lands are a 1 man band from Illinois that plays dark ambient and this is a review of his 2012 ep "Risen tide" which was released by Hypnotic Dirge Records.
The ep begins with nature sounds and a few seconds later synths start to kick in and the music goes more into a dark ambient direction and a couple of minutes later they start bringing in atmospheric and experimental elements while also retaining the nature sounds and as time goes on by the music gets more diverse and the synths bring in different sounding keys and towards the end the nature sounds start to take over again.
Song themes cover darkness and nature, while the production has a very strong and powerful sound with the song being very long and epic in length and over 30 minutes.
In my opinion Old Forgotten Lands are a very decent sounding dark ambient project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. 7/9 out of 10.
