Listen to Pavor Nocturnus

The Pitch: More creepy ambient/industrial music, this time courtesy of Eugenio Mazza from Milano, Italy.

What I Like: First and foremost, if you're still kind of a noob to this genre like me you'll appreciate this bite-sized point of entry.  The EP is a good length which allows each track to be analyzed more closely.  This is an especially good thing as there is quite a bit of differentiation between each one.  "The Three Beggers" tricked me into thinking this was going to stick to a quiet, instrumental approach, but then "The Great Ritual" tosses in some death doom vocals and haunting, repetetive piano for something that sounds more like Unjustly Labeled.  Then we move onto strings, breakbeats, and all other realms of pleasantly composed music.

What I Don't Like: I can't really think of anything.  It's still not my all time favorite genre, but this is another release to continue chipping away at my cynical exterior.

The Verdict: If you like pretty chill, but still often dark, music that is eclectic and well-composed then you should check out Streghe.  It's like a delicious platter of electro tapas.

Flight's Fav's: "Sabbath," "Malleus Maleficarum"
