Dark ambient solo artist SATARAY today unveils “Hexennacht.” Currently streaming at Decibel Magazine, the track comes off her forthcoming Blood Trine Moon EP.

Metaphorically titled for the creative process, that of bleeding and reflecting, Blood Trine Moon is a vessel of contained rituals, exploring varied states of consciousness within occult explorations of the natural world. The EP intones rich, dark, ambient textures and further explorations into various vocal caverns. Elements of dungeon synth and harsh industrial genres blend seamlessly into this complex four-track EP.

Writes Decibel Magazine of “Hexennacht,” “…the eerie piece is built around a repetitive organ-inspired melody and rumbling tribal thrum, with washes of distant synth and SATARAY’s rangy incantations and wails. It slowly builds in intensity, like an invocation, then simmers to a haunting close. Like the rest of the EP, there are elements of industrial grime and dungeon synth.”

Adds SATARAY, “The outline of this track was created during the eve of Hexennacht one year, and encapsules all of that which is evoked.”
