4 stars Refining the approach of their first album and spreading it out over epic tracks, Darkspace's second album finds them hooking up their spacey style of ambient black metal with the sprawling compositional structures of classic ambient artists such as Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Brian Eno. At points verging on blackened doom metal with its crushingly slow riffs, the album also features more artful use of sound effects, with the final track Dark 2.10 tapering off into a long sequence of space noises. On the whole, the album is reminiscent of a shooting star - it begins in tranquility, then there's a chaotic, roaring, firey thing passing across view, and then you're left with the cold emptiness of space again. Another very good example of ambient black metal.
