“Hohoho! Christmas is coming. And don't we hate it. Well, we at Okkulth do. So we want to release a compilation called 'Darkmass 2008'. Hopefully it will be an anual thing. Rules: only dark ambient and/or drone, composed especially for this comp, deadline: Dec.24. So you have to express your hate for Christmas in a subdued manner. And you have to do it quickly! Compilation will be released on Dec.25. Get started suckers!”
We thought: hey, it would be nice to have a little compilation, couple of good tracks to get us at least one hour of fun over the holiday season. Well, the response was incredible, given the short amount of time: a massive 27 tracks were submitted! Clearly, we’re not the only ones not so fond of Christmas! So the little comp has become quite a big one (and yes, a little noise crept in there).
Spread over 2 volumes, this is our Christmas present to you. It takes a little while to unwrap, but it’s worth it! Enjoy!
