Raison d'Etre - Requiem for Abandoned Souls

For me Raison d'Etre are the peak dark ambient act, Peter Anderson uses so many interesting elements within his music. From gorgeous Gregorian chanting to organic and lush sounding synthesizers Requiem for Abandoned Souls proves to be one of the highest achievments in the dark ambient world. Overall Requiem for Abandoned Souls manages to stay captivating throughout, not exactly music to listen to on a jog but perfect for just sitting alone in the dark on a high volume. Highly recommended for anyone looking for some ambiance.

1. In Abandoned Places

3. Disintegrates from Within
