First review of Darker by Bert Strolenberg  http://www.sonicimmersion.org/index.php

Phobos album "Darker", his third private release to date, is another treat for ambient fans who love longform, overtly dark and intense soundscape music meant for headphone listening.

With four overall dense and at times rather abstract sound paintings, the composer really takes his listener to the next level down the abyss, which isnít always that easy this time. The third track "Hellís Gate" is the most challenging in that aspect. Donít expect any deranged, apocalyptic music though, as David Thompson sticks to sketching deep ambient dronefields along vast textural, highly imaginative farscapes that all roam in the unknown depths of time and space.
Rhythm is totally absent here as a multitude of extensive layers unfold and sound effects pass by in the everlasting, haunting and foreboding spheres. The faint of heart though should make sure to skip this disc.

The physical release of "Darker" on high-quality Taiyo Yuden cd-r comes as a four-panel digipak and is limited to 50 copies.

Dahlia's Tear - Dreamsphere



Dahlia's Tear - Under Seven Skies


Both excellent

232

Prior to that Heavy rock pretty much predominantly. David, I saw UFO at Boro Town Hall without Schenker - bit of a disappointment !
I was at that gig as well, it was a big disappointment, Paul Chapman was playing guitar for them then, what a tosser!
Didn't bother with UFO after that.

233
Didn't go to college, but went straight into an engineerng apprenticeship, so important bands for me 1976 - 1980 were:-
Pink Floyd
Led Zepplin
Rush
Motorhead
UFO ( with Michael Schenker in the line up)

A review by Bert Strolenberg (http://www.sonicimmersion.org/)

Now hereís another strong piece of profound ambient music by UK-based composer David Thompson, aka Phobos, who already made a great impression on me with "Live on Earth".

"This Desolate Place" contains one longform piece, offering 68 minutes of highly atmospheric textural music. I gave the album several spins with a good pair of headphones, and every time it blew me away.
