Lunar Aurora - Of Stargates and Bloodstained Celestial Spheres (1999)
Lunar Aurora - Zyklus (2004)
A masterpiece of cosmic black metal and dark ambient. The first disc is a single, impenetrable, hour-plus monolith of tremolo-picked guitars, droning synths, and relentless drum-machine blastbeats, broken up by two beautiful spoken word samples dealing with the impossible, crushing emptiness/fullness of the cosmos. This is followed by a second disc of cavernous dark ambient. I've started working on a list of my all-time favorite black metal records that will mark a certain upcoming milestone on here, and this was one of the first that popped into my head while brainstorming.
1. (Keine) Angst
2. Unter den Wolken
5. Licht Aus!
I am the cosmos, I am part of this process that I am doing. I’m part of it. I’m molecules. My molecules are those molecules. The stars that die, that’s me.
