DaRKRam - Stone and Death
Label: Club Inferno Entertainment
Written by: Sandra Nunes
There’s some versatility in the extreme music that might be combined with various elements inside the heaviest genre or even making part of original creations like this one I was and still am listening, “Stone and Death”, by daRKRam.
Behind this project is the Italian jazz musician Ramon Moro, a talented trumpet player who decided to create something experimental, progressive, intense and unique, according to his thoughts and visions, using black metal influences with dark ambient sounds.
The result is not easy to absorb unless you’re inside the dark ambient scene and want to listen to something new – if the answer is positive, then, this is the right album, otherwise it’s necessary to be in the right mood to be able to fully concentrate on it – for example, a walk in the forest works better than a walk in the beach. I can say it took some time for me to get used to this “Stone and Death”, a transcendental experience inside the inner self.
My favorite tracks are” Equilibrium”, “Reaction To Conflict” , “Evolution” and these pieces of art speak by themselves.
“Stone and Death” can be the original soundtrack for our period of reflection because it tells a story of a man hit by a natural catastrophe and how he deals with it, so we can use it as a metaphor to help us on these hard days of our survival in this world, however, it is important to remember that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel and music certainly helps.
