Into the Eternal Darkness Review on MAKE YOUR OWN TASTE

My release "Into the Eternal Darkness" with Scott Lawlor got a nice write up from MAKE YOUR OWN TASTE:

Jack Hertz should not be a stranger to netaudio ambient fans, producing a pretty varied body of work in different subgenres of ambient. This collaboration with Scott Lawlor on the Nostress netlabel is very much dark, experimental ambient. Hence titles like “The devil is not as black as he is painted”! This ain’t designed to make you think of chirping cardinals and babbling brooks. The sounds on here are low, dark, bubbly, rustly and unsettling. An aural journey to the dark side. I’ve noted before that I get a lot of dark ambient submissions — dark times, dark music, I guess. But when dark ambient is done well, it’s a very compelling journey. The massive “A mighty flame follows a tiny spark” is a great slab of swirly eldritch darkness, and the impressively long-titled track “In the middle of the journey of our life I found myself within a dark woods where the straight way was lost” (I wonder how long that would be translated into Welsh?) features some insistent percussive sounds suitable for accompanying a witchy rite in those dark woods. One of the better dark ambient releases I’ve received.
