Gregory Frost It's right and proper darkness for the subject and inspiration. Love it.

Rsfx-amb Chilling ambience bottled in the fabled Northwest Passage piped straight into your headphones. Favorite track: komogwa.

SWLret63 Haunting, oppressive, evocative of endless frozen spaces under the polar night.
On headphones in a darkened room, a scarily immersive experience.
Also recommended: Dan Simmons' Franklin expedition novel, " The Terror". Favorite track: komogwa.
Brian Bourassa

Brian Bourassa A uniquely dark, but not at all scary place, drawn up by both David Bickley & Tom Green. It is really unlike any "dark" album I have ever heard. The low bass of track 6 is eerie yet not terrifying. There is a Eno-ish quality about the work.

A must listen... Favorite track: first steps.

Dark, brooding, sometimes unsettling, this is ambient music from a different place. Inspired by the doomed expedition to find the North West Passage, led by Sir John Franklin in the 1840s, this album follows his ships, Erebus and Terror, into the mystery of the arctic night...
