Brian Bourassa This is as desolate as the howling winds over an utterly lifeless landscape. Here, the darkness creeps over you like a thick and gooey substance, never letting go for the entire 1hr 10min, and 23 seconds!

Where Into the Dark | vol. i sets you on the edge of darkness, looking in from the outside, vol, ii thrusts you into the center, making it's predecessor sound like a festival in comparison.

Dear God, where on Earth (or other-world) can vol. iii go? Favorite track: Into The Dark part 7.

'Into The Dark | volume ii (waag_rel045)' is the second in a trilogy of dark, atmospheric, and rather sinister sounding ambient albums from my dear friend and everyone's favourite hoarder of electric guitars, Cousin Silas.

In keeping with the first volume (waag_rel038), this is an album where Cousin Silas goes back to his darker ambient roots. It continues down the deliciously dark and deeply atmospheric rabbit-hole that waag_rel038 started down ... back before Christmas.

Six tracks of longish form darker ambient soundscapes that feed the imagination and inspire the dreaming of dreams ... as a recent HuffPo article discussed, daydreaming is an important tool for creativity:

"Creative types know, despite what their third-grade teachers may have said, that daydreaming is anything but a waste of time."

Cousin Silas' music helps my mind to wander into places and spaces it wouldn't necessarily find on it's own ... and I will always be indebted to him for this.

I hope you enjoy this album as much as I do ... and do what I have done and add both albums into a playlist so I can consume them together.

PS the release of this album accidentally coincides with Cousin Silas' son's wedding ... congratulations and best wishes to the beloved couple!!! ... and no, I'm not talking about Silas and his Telecaster.
