Official press release:
One-woman dark ambient creation Sataray will unleash the haunting sounds of her Nocturnum debut this spring via Scry Recordings.
Recorded and mixed by Sataray and mastered by Casey Chittenden Jones (Noisepoetnobody) with imagery by ritual artist Anima Nocturna, the deeply ominous seven-song offering seamlessly mingles lingering whispers, diseased howls, and mournful incantations within a realm inhabited by exquisite synth lines, masterful ambience, hypnotic rhythms, and entrancing production.
Issues Sataray of the work:
“The songs of Nocturnum pay homage to all that was deeply buried and could only be brought to the light through the underworld and all that the night represents. The name Nocturnum stands a symbol of the spiritual night I experienced while recording over a succession of nights between the winter of 2017 and winter of 2018 in Olympia.”
Nocturnum will be released on April 5th as a limited-edition cassette and digitally via Bandcamp.
For pre-orders, go to the outfit’s Bandcamp, and stream opening track “DarkMoon” below:
SATARAY will play a special record release show June 6th at Highline Bar in Seattle, WA with additional live rituals to be announced in the weeks to come.
