Olympia-based one-woman dark ambient project Sataray (aka Katrina E.) is gearing up to release her debut album Nocturnum this Friday (4/5) via Scry Recordings, which is also home to releases by Eye of Nix, Bastard Noise, and more (pre-order). Katrina tells us, "Nocturnum portrays a symbol of the night both literally and metaphysically, as this collection of songs were created over a 2-year span in an isolated nature space, all done at night. Each song in their own right is a ritual to transmute deeply buried karmic energy." This "rituals" are as dark and eerie as it gets, with ominous synths and Sataray bringing her voice from a creepy whisper to a soaring cry. It's a very cool album and you can stream it below.
