Darkspace - Dark Space III is ambient black metal, a musical journey through the void of outer space. Layered guitars create a massive wall of sound, occasionally huge chunky riffs escape from the wall. Tones and moods are set by the keyboards and the alien sounding vocals, deeply buried in the mix. Darkspace uses a drum machine to great effect, it enhances the distant feeling of their music:
As the drums blast away in the background and the guitars and keyboards envelop you with their majestic dark sounds, you truly feel as if you are hurtling through the deepest depths of space, overwhelmed with awe and fear at the same timeThe quote is from this Last Rites review. Here are two more of them, one from Metal Storm, and one from Chronicles of Chaos.
