Darkspace - Dark Space III I (Avantgarde) (2014)

Listen to Dark Space III I via Bandcamp.

I remember seeing "Event Horizon" in the seventh grade and being absolutely terrified. Looking up into the night sky was just like the tagline to the movie, "Infinite space, infinite terror." But since we're stranded on Earth for now, this is all hypothetical. That is, until Darkspace came around. If you ever wondered what was brought back from the "other side" in "Event Horizon," you can safely hear sixty four minutes of it on Darkspace's Dark Space III I.

What we have here is total astronomical annihilation. Dark Space III I is the soundtrack to your soul being hate fucked by a black hole. Darkspace's guitarist/singer is Tobias Möckl who is also one man black metal project Paysage d'Hiver. Whereas Paysage d'Hiver sounds like it was recorded in the eye of a sub-zero blizzard, all the sounds flattened into one track of barbaric isolation, Darkspace is sci-fi black metal. Yes, this is sci-fi black metal. This is the future of black metal. All can be heard. In space no one can hear you scream. But on Earth we can hear Darkspace riff.

Darkspace sounds like Paysage d'Hiver and Godflesh were put on a rocket and shot into the nethers of the Milky Way. Xenomorphs are bursting from stomachs, the Yautja are pulling skulls from spines, and you left in an escape pod. You are in the pure isolation of space. Your demise is endless. Welcome to Dark Space III I.
