With only a few days left before their newest opus is set to be released, Darkspace have given us an album teaser to listen to. Their label Avantgarde Music has released a seven-minute teaser through YouTube with snippets of tracks from their newest album, Dark Space III I. The album is set for release on the 6th of September and will follow his predecessors in being released initially on limited digipack CD format.

How was that?

In case you don't comprehend Morse code, it says (more or less):

incoming signal.
darkspace calling dssc.
mission: dark space iiii encounter.
geo coordinates: 46.94051, 7.4439.
time: 062200bsep14.
end of transmission.

Seems our minds will blow again!

I had to stop after the twentieth second to listen to Kraftwerk's Radioaktivität.
But I came back and enjoyed it enough. Seven minutes. Very generous teaser.

Not exactly what I was hoping. It's too heavy on keys and they've left their noisy moment behind.
Alien1988 - 01.09.2014 at 15:40  
So will there be only three songs? If so I hope they will be around 20 minutes at least.

Darkspace II only had 3 songs and it was almost an hour long.

Sounds great really. Think this is going to be their most varied and versatile record to date. I'm glad they're expanding their song writing whilst remaining totally cosmic in sound.

True, and it seems these are all 'normal' songs without ambient intermezzo as was 2.9 in II.

What are you talking about, I hear more BM here than anything else, the keys definitely aren't dominating
Alex Fenger - 01.09.2014 at 17:11  
This is EXACTLY what I wanted it to sound like. Holy shit I haven't been this excited for a record in my life.

I think we can all admit that mz has a point. The increased presence of the keys, at least in the sample, is quite striking. I can easily see why someone wouldn't necessarily dig it.

As for my own opinion, it sounds decent.
Curumir - 01.09.2014 at 19:42  
This already sounds better than anything they released before. That noise crap fucked up all the other records imo, I couldn't enjoy it.

THIS IS BEYOND AMAZING

I just think it's funny that some people are reacting negatively to an ambient black metal band having a heavy keyboard presence. Aren't sound effects supposed to be a crucial factor for this style?
Vombatus - 01.09.2014 at 20:31  
Sounds less oppressive than usual. But damn it gonna be good ! I like the keyboard sounds.
Sword_Chant - 01.09.2014 at 20:42  
Not the usual style of metal I check out but I really dig the sound of this - think i'll be checking this one out

What's your point? Even if it's mainly rooted in BM, I'd prefer if they went for a more abrasive sound. Dark 2.8 is a prefect song and among my top ten most favorite tracks ever.

It was just my way of saying that the keys don't really appear too heavy to my ears. Listening to it again now I hear them more in the background, but I still think they're not really that upfront. Going off of some of the band's previous material though, I can see why some people wouldn't care for a new style like this though, assuming this is what the album will predominantly sound like.
Boxcar Willy - 01.09.2014 at 21:44  
Sounds Cool. I've never listened to Darkspace, but I'll probably check this out.
V01d - 01.09.2014 at 22:13  
Really enjoying what I'm hearing so far. Much clearer production, which I initially thought wouldn't suit their overall sound, but these guys really know what they're doing. The keys have the same amount of presence that they did on previous outings, more or less. Really excited for this release.

Not everyone is coming in with that expectation though. Regardless of genre, people will complain about an element of the sound they don't like.

Personally I think this is a great teaser, and really nice to see a band releasing something more than just some crappy 2-minute "soundbite" that gives you virtually no impression of what the album will sound like. I highly doubt I'll be disappointed by the final product based on this.

Totally agree with you there, when I saw "new album teaser" in the news title I assumed it'd just be one of those 2 minutes or less clips you're talking about (can't stand that either), but I was pleasantly proven wrong!
