After reading about the Berlin Atonal festival on Fact Mag’s website the other day, I’ve been slowing combining through the artists. Really enjoying Pact Infernal this morning. Good dark stuff… largely on the ambient side of things, but with some beat-driven stuff too. https://pactinfernal.bandcamp.com/
Edit #1: Upon more listening, definitely largely beat driven, I guess, but in a way that still makes me want to categorize them as ambient. Sort of like a lot of Demdike Stare/etc.
Edit #2: Also they used the term “ritual ambient” in the description of Pact Infernal on the festival website, and it wraps up so much of what I’m into these days into this neat little package. I kind of don’t want to explore what music is already lumped into that genre as just the name evokes so much great imagery for me.
