First Dark Ambient (or Dungeon Synt?) album of Moloch. Recorded on Reel-to-reel/open-reel [audio] tape recorder in pseudo-stereo mode, live in the woods of Carpathia (tracks 1-6, 8, 9, 10 in Winter-Spring 2007. Track 7 recorded 17/06/2006). No PC programs were used here. All sounds represent a real-time-recording, along with background sounds of the open space and atmosphere of the natural acoustics. Mastered in Stereo mode from original master reels at After Many Funerals studio (Bulgaria) by Alexander. All music written & recorded by Sergiy Fjordsson. Track 1 is a collaboration between Sergiy Fjordsson and Lord Hastner  and based on track "Melancholie 17.06.06".


The recording quality is raw, cold and primitive, done with minimal equipment (old keyboards, few microphones and 4-track tape recorder), as well as some of the tracks was very difficult to play because of the horrible coldness around... Anyway, here are the results of our journey and our first live field recording in the woods of Carpathia...
