Treble is currently streaming Blood Trine Moon, the latest EP from dark ambient solo artist SATARAY in its chilling entirety. The premiere comes on the eve of the offerings official release via Scry Recordings.
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 Treble, “Ostensibly, it’s ambient music, but it feels as much aligned with Dead Can Dance as it does with Lustmord or the most spacious of Tangerine Dream material, and featuring elements of industrial and dungeon synth throughout. Autumnal music (and pretty spooky), but perfect enough for the snow-drenched winter we’ve been having as well.”

Recorded and mixed by SATARAY, mastered by Casey Chittenden Jones (Noisepoetnobody), and featuring artwork by Anima Nocturna, Blood Trine Moon will be released digitally on February 11th via Scry Recordings.
