Dark Ambient Music

Dark ambient music is a sub-genre of Industrial music which started back in the 1970s. It features ominous and foreboding overtones. Newer and smaller synthesizers and sampling technologies have brought this type of music to a new level. This is a very diverse genre of music, which is related to ambient noise and music without connecting to other styles or genres.


The ethereal wave trend emerged in the early 1990s, focusing on a moody atmosphere pieces, over minor key rock. Ethereal wave was associated with bands, such as Black Tape, for example. By the mid 1990s, this genre had attracted a large number of music artists who worked on ambient noise, ambient industrial and ethereal wave, creating dark ambient music.
