France (1994 – present)

Asmorod is a dark ambient project from France, founded by Nicolas D. Faure in 1994. The first demo tape, “Dance in the Winter Fog”, was released in the same year. It was a mixture of dungeon synth and black metal.
In 1997 Asmorod released the first full-length album titled “Involution Toward Chtonian Depths”, which saw the participation of Cédric Codognet and Vanessa Hidden. With this album the project started to provide its typical mysterious, introspective and deep style that still distinguishes itself from the mass of uniform ambient releases.

Other albums followed, “A Faint Light Below” in 1998, “Derelict” in 1999, and “Hysope” in 2006. The last one has been considered by various serious magazines as the best dark ambient release of the year.

    One of the greatest in the genre. Sublime depth. I say DEPTH. This is how dark ambient should sound. My particular highljght is Enlightening Fire. This one goes to my list of essential gems in electronic music. Amazing music.

    Again have fallen in love with such kind of dark ritual ambient. Another great experience, thank you, Nicolas!

    I first listened to chtonian depths while I was playing first diablo. That was a cool experience, and the album itself is incredible.

    I really was not expecting to hear the second song break into black metal while listening to Dance in the Winter Fog. Surprised me something fierce, it did.
