Dawn’s Dark Music Corner: Dark Matter Noise

Seattle Sounds- Dark Matter Noise- by Dawn Wood

11536130_978705432169882_2406943394962012697_nDark Matter Noise has evolved dark and luscious sound-scapes from two of Seattle’s respected veterans: Allen Tompkins and the Goth Metal Goddess, Charlie Drown.

The band first started recording in 2007 and their first digital release was in 2008.  Since that time, between other projects, Dark Matter Noise still continues to mystify and intrigue both Gothic/Industrial/Ambient fans and fellow musicians.

Their music is described as: “A mix of angelic and demonic percussion and noise, crushing industrial, sugary pop, pulsing ebm,vampiric.darkwave metal.”
Dark Matter Noise is currently working on their second album entitled: Oceans and Gravity.

Music Review: Weird Tales From The Countryside

WEIRD TALES FROM THE COUNTRYSIDE (2015)
DeFago

unnamedToday I am checking in with Javier Gomez, otherwise known as DeFago. DeFago is a Spanish musician, with a feel for Ambient and Electronic music.

His latest album, “Weird Tales From The Countryside” was released in March 2015, and is one album that will keep you awake at night J

WTFTC portrays the way the countryside haunts and lingers around you in the night. It brings a deep, unique twist on modern horror music. WTFTC features a great electronic twist on the usual daunting strings music we hear in modern cinema. The overall dark tone and atmosphere the album brings a sheer sense of loneliness and terror.”

Hailing from Seville, Spain, DeFago is an artist who pushes the boundaries on techno music and brings a new haunting element to the mix. DeFago’s music may not suit everyone, but I will say that followers of Tangerine Dream, Goblin, and those who like Horror Soundtracks will find this work superb as DeFago captures brilliantly the work of such haunting  themes from the 70’s/80’s horror as well as modern elements.

My personal favorites from this album were “Return To Corpse City”, “The Festival” and “The Holy Company”. Each one of these tracks brought something unique and enthralling to the lineup where one started to have flashes of scenes from an upcoming book (spoilers).

As I said, DeFago’s style of music may not be for everyone, but I will say that he is one artist to keep on your radar.

You can find more about DeFago and his music at the following sites, and be sure to listen to some of the tracks and spread the word.
