Album review for: 'Noctilucant - Oblivion To You All' (2016) | Cinematic Dark Ambient

'Oblivion To You All' is the ominous second album from the Cinematic Dark Ambient project known as: 'Noctilucant', which I will attempt to decipher as a combination of darkness/light (both nocturnal and lucent). This concept certainly describes the album; though it is heavy on the darkness and scarce on the light. Like the moon in the night sky, there is only just enough light so that you can see how dark this decrepit environment really is. I would describe the album as a 'post-apocalyptic nightmare' that offers you glimpses of hope, only to beat you down again into lower levels of helplessness, nihilism, death and despair.

"The world as we know it has changed, the world we knew has gone...
...the end is near. Death is near. Goodbye."
