RITUALS INTO THE FIRE: Journey Through Darkness, Searching for the Sky LP


Here is another pretty much unknown LP from a guy named Steve Snow who went under the name Rituals Into the Fire. I've seen this on eBay before, but I've never seen it shared anywhere, so I thought "what the hell, why not let others hear it?". This is a strange synth LP that straddles the lines between darkwave, goth, ambient synth, and new age (no joke). It's dark and synth heavy, with pianos and violins and some pretty gloomy vocals. I actually think it's pretty beautiful, and well worth a listen, and if the "new age" thing throws you off, you'll almost certainly enjoy the song "Gift of Time", a slow, very gloomy darkwave masterpiece with electronics and violins and melancholy vocals galore. Don't be afraid... download this now and enjoy!

This was quite good. It would have been better if that woman had shut up and if they took it more easy on the synth.

Thanks, Viable C. :-)

I'm shocked to find my first record here on the internet!I only printed 500 copies and did everything without a label and very limited distribution!I'm pleased for all the positive comments here!Who could imagine after all these years this music still lives!
