about

The First Album Released since my 3 year hiatus. Ritual Dark Ambient Ethereal cacaphony with a couple of lyrical tracks. My heart was heavy when my gramma passed in 2008. Whereupon I released 'The Wake of Death' (which I will be posting one of these days).
I released this album on my Ma's last Birthday and in just a matter of days, she too became ill... I flew home to be at her side as she transitioned from this world to the next. It is fitting that my last couple of albums were appropriately titled 'Wake of Death' and then 'Bones & Dust'. Though I had no idea this album would ring true in this case. I think I was attempting to tread into the transition before I knew it was going to occur. ~X~

Haunting Ethereal ritual dark ambient experimental. For more Dark Muse sounds & info, I also create Dark Art Gothic & Witchy Jewelry under the moniker EyescreamJewelry.com

about

Dark Muse Oakland, California

Dark Muse came into being as the gutter wail of the howling banshee at the night sky, back in 2000. Prior to that, acoustic offerings were procured from the ding ding of my guitar strings in 1990. Now, I spew forth improvised sounds of Ritual Ambient whilst speaking in tongues and lay surrounded by bones in a macabre dank tomb, all the while reveling in natures lucid dark shadowy decay. ~X~ ... more

Track Name: Antique Inks
The oddest pungent aroma, stemming from
Antique inks quaintly gifted...
each bottle more pungent than the last
Ancient vapors permeate in an array of decay
Yet still I craft memories of... shadowed remains
and feel the pull to fade from within
The heavy ether of their corked deaths
to be released once another year has passed
again as yet... they often do
Glisten... as they drop upon the page.... as they often do
as they often do.... leaving streaks of gray
across the page.... as they often do
they smear into streaks of gray... across the page... as they often do

Track Name: Bones & Dust
As the memory fades... of pulling you close
Standing in the wind, we lock eyes on the road
My how time has grown, little more with each day
stretching out my hand, won't let nothing in the way
yet the past is full of holes, we recollect only parts
and piece them from the bones.... a minimal dance of shards
your eyes trust what they've seen, and go blind in between
and spirit's of past lift like clouds... ether flow through you and me

Spilling sounds like liquid fire, burning tongue with cold desire
encase heart in twisted wire, scratch surface of mute desire
spilling sounds like liquid fire... burning tongue with cold desire

subtle changes in the void, like stabbing verses in the dark
each passion we enfold... brings closer inner spark
a gust before blown away, tether me full of grace
shattered depth but can't relate
bones and dust without a shape

Cut the warmth out of your face
tempting fate with what remains
stand by choices meant to guide you
neural paths that never fade

I gather bone dust in my hands... let it sinter ember flame...
form the mask we are to bare, you and I and we alone

I gather bone dust in my hands, let it sinter ember flame
form the mask we are to bare, you and I and we alone....
you and I and we alone

Spilling sounds like liquid fire, burning tongue with cold desire
encase heart in twisted wire, scratch surface of mute desire...
I gather bone dust in my hands.... let it sinter ember flame... form the mask we are to bare... you and I and we alone....
