The Wondrous Journey Through the Catacombs of Life is the second album of Musterion, following the highly acclaimed debut album The Black Lodge (2005), built upon complex and obscure composition techniques and musical innovation, and it drags the listener on a brilliantly imaginative and frightening journey that combines elements of dark ambient, surrealism, absurdity, Holyism with the help advanced structural and theoretical considerations in terms of the composition.Linking to the Swedish style of darkambient (or better: ambient-industrial), Journey Through the Catacombs of Life offers cinematic ambient on the one side, noisey on the other, then a bit folkish, resulting in an hours worth of narrative soundscapes to get you through the night.Highly recommended for dark ambient fans that like music that reaches beyond standard drone music.Pressed CD housed in a beautifully designed digipak with12-pages booklet.
