Kontinuing thee kollaboration between Sombre Soniks and ATF Produktions we bring you thee full release of Kthonik Korridors, an homage to thee works of H P Lovecraft and thee Kthulhu Mythos.
This was originally released on CD as a digipak by ATF Produktions in 2010. Now that thee physikal CDs of Kthonik Korridors have just about sold out it is time to bring this to Sombre Soniks with a digital release via thee label, featuring thee final digipak artwork from thee ATF Produktions release in 2010 plus thee original kassette artwork that was kreated before ATF decided to release this on CD!
Instrumentation for this work inkluded singing bowls, shamanik rattles, seed shakers, Novation X-Station synth, field rekordings of skrap metal in thee Napoleonik tunnels underneath Dover and a large chunk of meat that was 'set upon with knives, machetes and a pitchfork'.
From thee original liner notes:
“Thee new album is an homage to H. P. Lovecraft, to whom I owe so much. It is to be used as bakground atmospheriks for Rites dedikated to thee Kthulhu Mythos. Instrumentation inkludes singing bowls, flutes, rattles, synths and a large chunk of meat set upon with knives, machetes and a pitchfork. Thee kompositions were named using kut-ups of ‘The Call of Cthulhu’ by HPL except Komposition 2 which was kreated as a soundtrak for thee short film ‘Kalibration of thee Gods’ by Madguten.”
Thee film kreated by Madguten has also been unleashed, in full HD for thee first time, by Sombre Soniks as a kompanion piece for this release. It is available for free download via thee Sombre Soniks Vimeo site here:
"...it is greatly organic, well built and put together, mystical, hypnotic, and even occult - and the playing on dynamics and variation between colder and warmer sounds makes it even more fascinating. It's a really deep listening experience...The album really does compliment it's theme. 9.5/10"

"Musically, we’re visiting that dark hinterland bordered by the Tangerine Dream of Zeit, the Cluster of Cluster’71, and the Nurse With Wound of Soliloquy for Lilith...Priapus 23 suggests that this album be used “as bakground atmospheriks for Rites dedikated to thee Kthulhu Mythos.” I have no doubt it would be perfectly suited for that purpose. It would also make a fine soundtrack for putting your feet up and immersing yourself in that dog-eared paperback with the lurid 1970s horror cover, which you keep towards the back of your bookshelf…”
- Cyclic Defrost Magazine
"The ritual character of "Kthonik Korridors" quickly becomes clear, as the musically dark and ambient and industrial passages work perfectly as background music for ritual or occult activities. Akoustik Timbre Frekuency are keen not hear their compositions suffocated in extravagant fatalism, but to perform through diversity of ideas and a wide range of different sounds and varied moods, which succeeds without exception. That it takes a little longer for the sounds on "Kthonic Korridors" to open up fully attests to the quality of the album. 8/10"
- Obliveon Magazine
"Every Dark Ritual Ambient listener must have this album in his/her collection. Especially those ones who adore world of Lovecraft as whole album’s theme is dedicated to his themes. Turn off all the lights, light candles and prepare your mind for mysterious journey. Highly recommended"
