Noctilucant A true classic of the Dark Ambient genre, and surely a must hear recording! Believe it or not though, DM would get even better after this release. Also, the vinyl reissue is utterly beautiful and sounds fantastic, too! Favorite track: Ephemeral.

mattaiascatholicam "Ephemeral" is like a soundtrack of dread in a medieval thinkers mind who comes to keenly understand the gravity of the unlimited punishments of hell, and the pointlessness of frivolousness in the temporarily pitched tent of this world, hair standing on his neck, clutching a rosary. Favorite track: Ephemeral.

about

'Desiderii Marginis have created the soundtrack
to the post-apocalyptic world. Taking the
approach of Ordo Equilibrio and Raison D’etre,
there is melody and tension created purely by
minimalist structure, catastrophic tranquility
and powerfully present percussive tempo.
This is ambient music in a haunting and
uncomfortable setting, also using some familiar
throbbing power electronic elements at times,
to keep the diverse mix alive and unnerve the
listener even more. The mixture of minimalism
and diverse elements creates a fluid piece that
leaves a somber reflection, exquisite in its terror
and eerie passages.'
