Band/Project: Marc Broude

Country: USA

Genre: Experimental Dark Ambient

Creation Year: 2005

Members: Marc Broude (Concept, Music)


Marc Broude (born August 23, 1984) is an American cross-genre composer who started in the Chicago-based noise outfit Panicsville in 2005.

Marc started recording while living in a squatter artist collective in 2005. Surrounded by musicians and a wide array of instruments, Marc spent the next couple years making a name for himself as a solo musician while playing in various bands with genres like black metal, grindcore, punk, and noise.

In 2006 he released the 7″ Psychological Warfare. That same year Marc, Danny Cortez and Chris Anderson formed Zog, a black metal outfit that disbanded after the death of Danny Cortez.

Marc took a break through 2007 following intense personal issues and continued his solo endeavor in 2008 while residing at various artist collectives and performing at DIY venues throughout the Chicago area.

In 2009 Marc’s sound drastically changed as he released the seventy-two minute dark ambient dirge Rites of Zen and Medicine, a fusion of free improvisation and avant-garde jazz. In 2011 Marc remixed, remastered and reissued Psychological Warfare.

Flores Funebres - logo

Band/Project: Flores Funebres

Country: Poland

Genre: Ethereal Dark Ambient

Creation Year: 2001

Members: Mespheris (Concept, Music) – Guest: Jarmilla (Cello)


Flores Funebres is an one man band from Poland, formed by Mespheris in 2001.

From the beginning, the project was based on elements of orchestral/classical music, dark wave, dark ambient and on instrumental parts inspired by black metal.

Flores Funebres music is often symbolic. It includes elements of the philosophy of nihilism, fear of death with a simultaneous fascination with the phenomenon of passing. The music is sometimes inspired by the metaphorical character of Lucifer, but also deals with universal issues and questions about the meaning of existence.

Flores Funebres explores the feelings of despair, grief, melancholy, suicidal thoughts, emptiness, pain of life… It is a musical exploration of the literary world of the late 19th century and of the aesthetics of decadence.

Forgotten Backyard - Logo

Band/Project: Forgotten Backyard

Country: Unknown

Genre: Ritual/Industrial Dark Ambient

Creation Year: 2010

Members: Dennis (Concept, Music)

For Fans of: Parhelion, Svartsinn, Kammarheit


Forgotten Backyard is a Ritual/Industrial Dark Ambient project, born in January 2010, which includes and combines reality and dreams to create a unique atmosphere.

Reality of a industrialized world in which only steel and iron talk, and man’s
massive architectures planted on a vast empty land, a place where everything is
asleep : only machines and steel speak in hollow lands below the infinite black
smoke-sky. In these lands one can find only emptiness and hopelessness combined
with endless sounds of forgotten machines controled by the ignorant man. It is the journey of
a lost drifter who wants to find reason of existence and at the same time who wants to escape from
the past. But in this dark-skyed world he only finds emptiness and a silent horror.

The unreal side of this project is based on dreams, on unreal places produced from
a troubled mind of a lost man. Spiritual places of darkness, emptiness, paranoia or
pleasure and mental evolution almost always wrapped in melancholy. Places of unknown
gods and distorted reality.

World became a forgotten backyard, under infinite black skies, destroyed by the man,
an Earth of Steel.
