On this album France's Day Before Us teams up with Italy's Nimh to create a sound that that combines ambient, dark industrial and neo-classical together and this is a review of their 2012 album "Under Mournful Horizons" which was released by Rage in Eden.
Water sounds start off the album along with some thunder and you can also hear some drones being utilized in the background as well as some spoken word parts and once the songs kick in the music starts having more of a gothic and ambient style atmosphere and after awhile the synths also start bringing in more traces of neo classical.
Experimental style noises can be heard at times in certain sections of the recording as well as a good amount of distorted drones which can be heard on top of the synths on some of the tracks and there are also a few long and epic in length tracks, on the 3rd track the music starts to get more dark, melancholic and melodic.
Spoken word parts start having more of a powerful presence as the album progresses as well as the synths getting more diverse and utilizing a variety of many different sounding keys and every song on this album has a different sound from each other while the main focus always remains on an ambient style sound.
Day before us and Mimh create some very dark, ritualistic and melancholic music together as well as making the album sound very original and experimental, the production sound s very dark while the song themes cover darkness, melancholy and nature.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding recording from both Day before us and Nimh and if you are a fan of dark ambient and drone, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Surrounded by A Moonless Night" and "Frozen Gleams Of Eternity". 8 out of 10.
