Abu Lahab - "Moths From The Silver Reich"

Artist: Abu Lahab
Title: Moths From The Silver Reich
Genre: Black Ambient
Country: Morocco
Release date: unknown (probably from the 2010s)

Track List:
  1. The Void Resonates
  2. Grasp the Abyss with Petrified Palms
  3. The World is a Sea of Blood
One more demo from the Moroccan artist known as Abu Lahab (not much is known about him, but this last.fm account probably belongs to him). Compared to "As Chastened Angels Descend Into The Thoracic Tombs", this demo is considerably less noisy - it's almost pure dark ambient. However, the unique "hellish" atmosphere still persists, and that's what distinguishes Abu Lahab from the myriads of generic dark ambient projects. His main source of inspiration is said to be "occultism and surreal visions (caused by illness)", and I can confirm I feel the atmosphere of insanity on this and other his releases. "Moths From The Silver Reich" is only available as 128kbps mp3 release, but I think it's pretty enough to preserve the aforementioned atmosphere, no higher quality rip is needed.
