I wanted a place to share my love of Dark Ambient. None of the other more broader threads feel right and it's a pretty niche subgenre within an already niche genre. 

I know I can't be the only one here that enjoys music that creates an eerie atmosphere through dulcet, ominous tones, you know, the kind that makes your skin crawl with delight. So, for those of you out there who enjoy this kind of stuff, well now we have a place to share our love for this creepy music we know and love. So, come on my spooky children, please help me spark some life into my new thread and share your favourite pieces and new discoveries you've found. I for example found two really, really great YouTube channels that host brand-spankin' new pieces, there's Cryo Chamber which probably houses the very best Dark Ambient YouTube has to offer, as well artists who feature on it with their own channels such as Pär Boström, Agratha Mirrait and Randal Collier-Ford

Dark House is a much smaller channel that I consider a backup, that also hosts newer releases when it can.

But, my absolute favourite Dark Ambient musician is the Dark Godfather of Black, LUSTMORD. Unfortunately, his music is much tougher to get a hold of as his tracks are always removed from YouTube, but I strongly recommend you listen to him, as his work is absolutely fucking amazing. So amazing, that my very first tennis match was based around one of his songs.

What about you? What do you like most about this genre? Who are your favourite Dark Ambient artists? Please indulge me and share.

I love me some Ambient, Dark Ambient and Drone music. I love listening to it, and I love making it. It's just such an odd and fascinating feeling i have when i'm exposed to such music, more so than any other. Of course it's not the easiest thing in the world to listen to, but I feel like it can have a certain sense of calm or relaxation, it can be kind of reassuring to dive deep into these dark walls of sound.

Nurse With Wound (Steven Stapleton) is probably the best in that perimeter as far as i'm concerned. His body of work is amazingly fascinating.

Sunn O))) have always been a huge influence on me, and although they come from the Metal Scene, I feel like their drones really go into Dark Ambient Territories in many tracks like this one especially

I'm not wholly into the genre, but there's a track from Rayman 2 I always found fascinating (and really frightening as a kid).

It really sets the atmosphere of the place; the gravestones, the s-s-spiders creeping around, the weird stenchy smoke wafting over...

 

This one legitimately scared me as a kid too (I was such a wuss lol). Coupled with the ghosts flying around, it was actual nightmare fuel for me at the time.

 

I know they're only video game tracks, I don't know much else about the genre other than hearing these experiences when I was younger.

Oh yes, this is certainly within my interests. If you have an hour to spare, this album is a definite must-listen:

I've found that a lot of avant-garde classical music also triggers the same emotions that dark ambient music does. The music of György Ligeti is a good example and I recommend it heartily:

Can't let a thread like this go by without contributing the work of Aubrey Hodges.

Spoiler

One of the neat bits of Mick Gordon's soundtrack for Doom 2016 is the music written for Dr. Samuel Hayden's appearances, which seems to be heavily inspired by Aubrey Hodges' compositions.

Delightfully haunting. Thanks, LaVie mate, I will definitely be exploring Coil's repertoire over the coming days.
