Haunting dark ambient from the brief-lived duo of Andria Haugen and Tania Stene. Cavernous keyboards, intermittent percussion, and ghostly, half-whispered vocals. Easily one of my top five dark ambient records.
At the time of recording, both members of Aghast were married to black metal royalty: Samoth of Emperor and Fenriz of Darkthrone, respectively. I'm not mentioning this because they need a cosign, I just think it's interesting. Also interesting is the fact that Hexerei im Zwielicht der Finsternis was supposedly recorded using Dead's (of Mayhem, whose dead body and splattered brains were already on an album cover) microphone.

7. Das Irrlicht
The demon flies in the blackened starless skies
And crawls in the bottomless depths of hell
