Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury has launched a new ambient project called Dark Sky Burial. The band’s debut album “De Omnibus Dubitandum Est” was released today (April 7).
Embury told Decibel the following:
“I have been forming the ideas for DSB for a few years now and being a lover of all music that’s ‘out there. As a huge retro horror/sci-fi movie fan, I envisioned DSB as an inevitable and natural progression for me as a composer.”
“It’s my first step on a different path but with the help of my longtime music partner Russ Russell, who mastered the album and added some amazing ambience. I hope some people will find a connection to it and follow me as I embark on this new sonic expedition.”
“The tracks are a strange sort of therapy for me. My mind is relentless and escapist at the best of times. And it’s times like these now in the world that listening back that this album seems like a suitable soundtrack—a chance to sever reality here and there for just a little while is always needed.”
