Svartsinn are a solo project from Norway that plays dark ambient and this is a review of his 2017 compilation album "Collected Obscurities" which was released by Cyclic Law.
Atmospheric synths and soundscapes start off the compilation along with some elements of dark ambient and the music also gets very experimental at times along with some field recordings and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and elements of noise can also be heard at times.
Drones can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with most of t he music being instrumental and as the compilation progresses the music gets more diverse and a couple of track also adds in a small amount of spoken word parts and on some of t he later songs they are some tracks that include some studio work from Northhaunt, Allseits, Gydja, and Psychomanteum.
Svartsinn plays a style of dark ambient that also gets very experimental at times along with touches of drone and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion Svartsinn are a very great sounding dark ambient solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Fading Horizon" "Form Is Emptiness" "Cold But Strong" and "September Dirge". 8 out of 10.
