After multiple years of contact Never Presence Forever and Isolated Existence finally cross paths with this unforeseen split entitled “A Future Scarred By Memory/Forever In The Dark”. These two overlooked projects have been making dark ambient/industrial noise for quite some time however seeming to lay deep and unnoticed in the world of noise, often unheard and forgotten. Featuring 3 tracks from each artist of brand new material amplifying swaying drones of sorrow and industrial distortion of neglected machinery.

Avmakt - Daudingar CDr

DDA:39 Avmakt - Daudingar CDr

Avmakt creeps up on you with this new album entitled “Daudingar”. This 5 track disc is filled with industrial textures that turn into unsettling noisy ambience and then kills you with some harsh noise attacks. The man behind this project is one of the greatest living noise artists around and continues to redefine the genre we call “Noise”. If you don’t know who he is, you are already too late for the story he shares…

Ptarkh & SiJ - Kapalika CDr

DDA:37 Ptarkh & SiJ - Kapalika CDr
















Darker Days Ahead is excited to release this awesome disc contributed by Ptarkh & SiJ. These 5 tracks take up a whole CDr, no room left for any other sounds in this claustrophobic pathway to and from hell itself. Kapalika offers many dark ambient tracks with whirling textures of haunted winds and howling spirits that went missing long ago. Follow these dark hallways to find what lies at the end, if you make it...

Wormhead/Superror - Split CDr

DDA:36 Wormhead/Superror - After-Effect/Untitled CDr

















Finally this long awaited split surfaces after long months in exile. Superror and Wormhead bring us 2 long tracks, 1 each of crushing and distorting transmissions of damaged signals. This disc is great for fans of both harsh noise and dark ambient. Power lines filled with fierce energy electrocute the bones of the dead with these rambling tones of destructive noise. Let the energy flow through you as you endure this 37 min disc.
