There are many stratifications to darkness, and Lustmord knows how to plumb the very deepest of them. He is an amazing artist, and this album definitely reflects his talent.
Favorite track: Black Static.
The Universe we inhabit is a vast expanse far larger than we are able to comprehend.
As we attempt to understand its underlying structure and as we gain new insight into the nature of matter, new questions arise and further gaps in our understanding are revealed.
Behind the world that we experience lies a veil of darkness and much is hidden between, beyond and unseen.
We are limited by our inability to truly grasp the infinite breadth of the Universe, the time scales involved in its measure and our insignificant position within.
Some things will always be unknowable, and existence does not begin or end with humanity’s conception.
Of Dark Matter:
Everything that has ever been observed by humankind, even with our most sophisticated instruments amounts, to less than five percent of the Universe.
Approximately sixty-eight percent of the Universe is unseen dark energy and approximately twenty-seven percent is unseen dark matter.
We have yet to discover what dark matter is, and only know the things it is not.
Although it has not been directly observed, its existence and properties are inferred from its effects on visible matter, its influence on the Universe's large-scale structure, and its effects in the cosmic microwave background.
This project is derived from an audio library of cosmological activity collected between 1993 and 2003. It was gathered from various sources including NASA (Cape Canaveral, Ames, The Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Arecibo), The Very Large Array, The National Radio Astronomy Observatory and various educational institutions and private contributors throughout the USA.
While space is a virtual vacuum, it does not mean there is no sound in space. It exists in space as naturally occurring electromagnetic vibrations, many well within the range of human hearing while others exist at different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum and these can be adjusted with software to bring them within our audio range.
The recordings of these interactions in space come from several different environments including radio, ultra violet, microwave and X-ray data and within these spectra a wide range of sources including interstellar plasma and molecules, radio galaxies, pulsars masers and quasars, charged particle interactions and emissions, radiation, exotic astrophysical objects, cosmic jets and flares from magnetars.

When encountered Shub-Niggurath at the end of Quake, I had no idea what the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft would someday mean to me. No musicians have ever captured that feeling the way the folks at Cryo Chamber have. Tru3Exist0r
Yog-Sothoth. The thought of something lurking beyond time and space, seeing and knowing everything and all in existence at any given time, is deeply unsettling and yet fascinating. This outermost, outerworldly feeling is being transported in a good way. Part 1 is good, but Part 2 indeed sounds like I would imagine The Lurker at the Threshold to feel, if he felt anything. An outerworldly, cosmic and desolate piece of dark ambient. David Fischer
The distant, humming beats ring out over the cosmos in such a cascade! The music seems to invoke such a vast picture, but it also seems so focused on it's direct perspective and narrative. Brilliant! The art does such an amazing job of conveying this as well. theeverwanderer
