KRISTOFFER NYSTROMS ORKESTER / Overlook Hotel (2011)

Side project of Peter Nystrom (Megaptera) and Kristoffer Oustad (V:28).  The sound of Overlook Hotel is the sound your nerves make as you fumble around an empty, crumbling and genuinely haunted building in the dark; you walk through a doorway, and the ghost walks through you.  Dark ambient soundscapes break occasionally into a hate fuelled industrial nightmare similar to the music of Chu Ishikawa.  Some spoken word sections stir up voices from the past that add an extra layer of eerie.

Songs of Note: They don’t work out of context, try the Teaser instead.
