Atrium Carceri-Cellblock (used)
My main complaint about darkwave being its overrated repetitiveness, I was intrigued to find _Cellblock_ on my doorstep. Taking it as a goal to reinvent darkwave whilst removing its monotonous feeling, composer Simon Heath has managed to create a 43 minute long album that is filled with a varied tapestry of sounds and small details that make it more than just background music. Songs like "Black Lace", "Corridor", "Blue Moon" and "Red Stains" manage to slowly build up atmosphere, let music seep through your pores and invade your body. At times, I can imagine _Cellblock_ being the twisted soundtrack to a dark horror movie or a sinister first person shooter like "Quake" -- to me a sign that Heath has succeeded in his goal. It is by far the most effective and intriguing darkwave album I've heard in quite a while, so I can heartily recommend it to anyone. -Chronicles of Chaos

Ambient has taken interesting evolutionary steps in the form that is "Cellblock." It tells a story sometimes through subtlety sometimes through being overly conspicuous. I can best describe this as you are in a mental asylum, but it is not a new asylum, it is a wholly dead asylum and all other inhabitants have long since perished, yet you are a living soul still locked in the cage. If that is not enough, you not only reside there, but you are privy to all the thoughts of spirits still wandering those caverns, you are in a sense a mind reader of the living and the dead. You hear voices; you see things… terrible things… (Cleric from
