Vidna Obmana - Gathering in Frozen Beauty (1989)
Vidna Obmana - Echoing Delight (1993)
Steve Roach & Vidna Obmana - Well of Souls (1995)

Lulling, melancholic, nocturnal ambience composed mostly of gauzy synths, with some gentle percussion and ye olde rainsticks. I feel somewhat obligated to post this record, as it has been my go-to sleepytime record for the past four nights, but it's great when I'm awake, too!

Track listing:
1. The Angelic Appearance
2. Ephemeral Vision
3. A Scenic Fall
4. Night-Blooming
5. The Solitary Circle
6. Weaving Cluster
7. Streamers of Stillness
8. The Ominous Dwelling

  3. You posted an ambush album a while back and I was just curious if you had and could post the other two albums of theirs. I tracked down the pigs album but its missing a track and so far ive come up empty on the revue album. Thanks for any possible help

    1. I can post Pigs soon. Never been able to track down Revue, though, would love to hear it.

  4. When Borders books & music was still a business, they put out a few of those weird exclusive Projekt records samplers, which they always sold for $1.99 for some reason.

    I remember buying one of those in 2000 or so, being 15, bored and dicking around in a Borders like you do when you're 15. It was two bucks and looked vaguely goth which was cool enough, so I guess I said sure.

    The first song from the river of appearance was on that specific volume - such a beautiful and mesmerizing song. Discovered some cool stuff from those compilations, at the time I hadn't heard much stuff like that so it was all wonderful to come across.

    Thank you so much for posting this! Haven't heard this album in some time, it's really nice to hear.

  5. Could you reupload this one please. Thanks man, this is a super blog
