Spirits of Rhea

darkcasey Spirits of Rhea is a truly stunning album. It taps into those big feelings of vast distances and cold realities, while mixing in a hint of the unknown and the otherworldly. It manages to do this smoothly and calmly, by recognising the power of the subtle to captivate and insinuate, and feels all the more powerful for it. If you like dark ambient / space ambient that makes you feel isolated and exposed, yet does it in a non-threatening manner, Spirits of Rhea is well worth checking out. Favorite track: Saturn emissions.

Televiper A surprise release from Phelios: unsettling atmospherics set to maximum. Favorite track: Hyperion.

In.Visible.Generator This album is special. It isolates the listener in a very far away environment. It has a sensational fascination for space travel which, maybe, you tell your children about. In all its darkness it has that special glowing spark.
L.Tech thumbnail
L.Tech With SPIRITS OF RHEA, Phelios redefines and expands the sound of Dark Space Ambient music and takes it to another level of mystery and unimaginable darkness.

The sound is so powerful and intense that it envelops the listener in a nightmarish dimension of cosmic proportions. Compelling, disturbing, frightening ... and absolutely brilliant!
