CRYO CHAMBER - New Collaborative Album Out In December

One of the most esteemed dark ambient labels out there, Cryo Chamber, will release on 4th December already the fifth chapter in an album series that pay tribute to H.P. Lovecraft. This time a two hour long soundscape album entitled Shub-Niggurath was recorded by 20 ambient artists!
Shub-Niggurath offers dark sounds from dreamy dimensions to never ending cursed forests. So is this a compilation? No, this is a collaboration and huge undertaking. 20 artists linked studios and sound for over a year so that they could work with each other. This led to a deep exploration of the Mythos and Shub-Niggurath. Two CD album comes in a deluxe 16 page hard cover digibook. Artwork is served on Matte Laminated pages that makes the artwork stand out. A journal with entries by the seeker of the Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young, as interpreted by writers Donald Persson and Alistair Rennie.
Shub-Niggurath is an Outer God (or Outer Goddess) in the pantheon. She is a perverse fertility deity. An enormous mass which extrudes black tentacles, slime-dripping mouths, and short, writhing goat legs. Small creatures are continually spat forth by the monstrosity, which are either consumed into the miasmatic form or escape to some monstrous life elsewhere.
Of all the mythos deities, Shub-Niggurath is probably the most extensively worshipped. Her worshippers include the Hyperboreans, the Muvians, T'yog of K'naa, and the people of Sarnath, as well as any number of druidic and barbaric cults. She is also worshipped by the non-human species of the mythos, such as the "Fungi from Yuggoth" (the Mi-Go) and the Nug-Soth of Yaddith. With the proper occult paraphernalia, Shub-Niggurath can be summoned to any woodlands at the time of the new moon.
The artists who partecipated in this massive creation are: Atrium Carceri, God Body Disconnect, Dronny Darko, ProtoU, Kolhoosi 13, Neizvestija, Northumbria, Apocryphos, Randal Collier-Ford, Dead Melodies, Flowers For Bodysnatchers, Ager Sonus, Council Of Nine, Kammarheit, Gydja, Creation VI, Darkrad, Aegri Somnia, Ugasanie, SiJ, Alphaxone and Keosz. The album was mastered by Simon Heath (Atrium Carceri, Sabled Sun), who as well did the artwork. Listen to an extract from the album and pre-order this monumental ambient release at this location.
