SATARAY: Nocturnum Full-Length From Dark Ambient Project To See Limited-Edition Cassette Release Via Scry Recordings + Record Release Shows To Take Place This Weekend

One-woman dark ambient project SATARAY will unleash a limited cassette edition of her stunning Nocturnum full-length this weekend at two special record release shows.

Recorded and mixed by SATARAY and mastered by Casey Chittenden Jones (Noisepoetnobody) with imagery by ritual artist Anima Nocturna, the haunting seven-song Nocturnum seamlessly mingles lingering whispers, diseased howls, and mournful incantations within a realm inhabited by exquisite synth lines, masterful ambience, hypnotic rhythms, and entrancing production.

Indy Metal Vault hails, “…an embracing of the dark – a work that establishes dominion over the night’s destructive forces by first meeting them where they are and living among them…. There’s an unmistakable energy coursing through these compositions, and the open listener will be able to feel it washing over him or herself in waves.” BrooklynVegan concurs, “These ‘rituals’ are as dark and eerie as it gets, with ominous synths and SATARAY bringing her voice from a creepy whisper to a soaring cry.” Adds Ghost Cult, “It’s some feat to breathe glorious life into such a synthetic, occasionally crashing body while giving the tone of that life being torn away. Nocturnum is not the easiest listen but rarely are the things of most enlightenment.”

Nocturnum was released digitally April 5th via Scry Recordings at THIS LOCATION. A limited cassette edition will be available this weekend at two special SATARAY record release performances in Seattle and Olympia respectively. See confirmed dates below.
