Life in the Dark - The Sunya is Rising

The Sunya is Rising, the debut EP from Life in the Dark is dominated by the title track spanning 23 minutes and 27 seconds. Epic drone that ebb and flows between crushing melancholy and quieter dirges. I think this is entirely electronic, with what sounds like giant guitar chords and massive mechanical drums all bathed in reverb. Coupled with melancholic little piano melodies and the sad wailing voices you can pick up deep below in the mix. You could call this electronic funeral doom, I call it a beautiful piece of music. Check out the review by the gentlemen at Lurker's Path.
