This is a review of another recording from Dark Awake with the music style being a mixture of apocalyptic, ritual, neo-classical and dark ambient with the album being called "Epi Thanatan" and released by Rage In Eden Records in the year of 2013.
The album starts out with a dark an atmospheric sound and a few seconds later spoken word ritualistic parts are added into the music and after awhile drum programming becomes a part of the recording and the album gets more experimental, avant garde and ritualistic as time goes on by.
When we get more into the album the music starts getting more classical influeneced, ambient and symphonic in certain parts of the recording and after awhile melodic chanting becomes a part of the recording along with some classical guitars, folk instruments and human bones being brought in later on during the recording.
With this album Dark Awake get more darker and apocalyptic with this album while still having some of the classical and neo folk elements of the first album while also bringing in a more avant garde and ritualistic sound this time around.
Song themes cover Typhonian Witchcraft, Necronomicon, Sumerian Mythology, Runes, Qabalah and Mithriaism, while th e production has a very dark adn ritualistic sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Dark Awake and if you are into dark ritualistic ambient music, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Epi Thanaton" "Sigillum Of Cutha" "Ichor" and "Spheres of Qlippoth". 8 out of 10. .
