Monument Prázdnoty (Eng: Monument of Emptiness) is the debut album from Czech post, doom metal band Indrid Cold. The word emptiness means: “The field of boundless emptiness is what exists from the very beginning. You must purify, cure, grind down, or brush away all the tendencies you have fabricated into apparent habits. Then you can reside in a clear circle of brightness. Utter emptiness has no image. Upright independence does not rely on anything. Just expand and illuminate the original truth unconcerned by external conditions.

Accordingly, we are told to realize that not a single thing exists. In this field birth and death do not appear. The deep source, transparent down to the bottom, can radiantly shine and can respond unencumbered to each speck of dust [each object] without becoming its partner. The subtlety of seeing and hearing transcends mere colors and sounds. The whole affair functions without leaving traces and mirrors without obscurations.“

WINTERBLOOD „Finsternis“

Most people probably associate the city of Florence in the sun-flooded central Italiany Tuscany region with the birth of the Renaissance and a cornucopeia of masterpieces by such artistic titans as Dante Alighieri, Giovanni Boccaccio, Francesco Guicciardini, and Niccolò Machiavelli.
Yet one of the city’s contemporay musical progenies is rather drawn towards the opposite of light and summer landscapes. When Stefano Senesi inaugurated his minimalistic dark ambient outlet WINTERBLOOD with the release of his debut full-length „Le fredde ali dell’inverno“ in 2008, both, his project’s name and the album title that translates as „The Cold Wings of Winter“, demonstratively pointed towards one of his favoured artistic sujets. In his stunning catalogue of currently 29 albums, the Italian has returned time and time again to rather nordic themes revolving around the cold season, but also other left-hand topics such as darkness, loneliness, magic, and forests.  
With the 2019 digital release, „Finsternis“, Stefano Senesi has most successfully evoked the eponymous darkness of its German title and frozen cineastic soundscapes delivered in his typical, minimalistic style that has been aptly dubbed „polar ambient“ to such a degree that it has caused a continuous demand from the Italian’s following for a physical release ever since this album came out. Kunsthall now gladly heeds the call and proudly presents WINTERBLOOD’s „Finsternis“ in a beautiful black and silver gatefold double-album edition on black vinyl.
