Blood Box is a dark ambient solo project based in Seattle, WA, United States, formed by Michael JV Hensley, also founding member of the duo Yen Pox.
The music of Blood Box places you directly in the midst of a tragic aural nightmare. Snarling beasts and whispering demons haunt the nether regions of bleak reverberating dronescapes, giving way to majestic swells of minor key orchestral fragments.
The acclaimed album "The Iron Dream" was released in 2004 on Eibon Records. It has been described as a classic within the annals of dark ambient history. Six tracks of mind bending atmospherics
. Melting, drowning and multi-dimensional textures that float on a milky, vaporous, red current. Hazy and drugged sounding, "The Iron Dream" wraps you in a sensually dark embrace, unleashing mutating visions of horror and beauty so compelling it's only later you'll realize realized you passed into another realm.
Blood Box returned in 2011 with "Funeral in an Empty Room", another highly detailed and atmospheric work. Awash in slow, dreamlike waves of morphing textures, and blissfully unfurling cosmic drift, this is nothing less than an aural vision down the hypnotic path to the unknown; serene yet gloomy, with multiple layers of swelling tones, subdued melodies, and ominous, spacey effects.
