I've been a Besvikelsens Dystra Monotoni fan since I first stumbled upon their work via the now defunct Space Black Metal blog. Moving from obvious metal tendencies to full blown electronic affairs in the realms of ambient and drone, Besvikelsens Dystra Monotoni is but one of many remarkable Russian artists crafting truly incredible ambient music. With "Black Vale" we see Besvikelsens Dystra Monotoni teaming up with Free Tibet, an artist I'm otherwise unfamiliar with, for a huge cosmic cavern of deep and dark ambient of the highest most lush caliber Beguiling and subtly menacing, "Black Vale" is an exercise in the most far reaches of dark ambient music. A veritable black hole represented in, ultimately, 2 movements expressed from 2 different entities. Essential for all ambient, drone, and noise fans.
