The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble

Orchestral Jazz // Dark Ambient

Overtures creep toward you bearing ominous insight. A ravenous beast of symphonic scale lurks behind every measure; its teeth a menacing discord that devour your surroundings presence. Henryk Górecki could be leading The Cinematic Orchestra through such a place, yet the scourge of blaring horns and thunderous storms resemble unknown regions. This elegant, brooding ardor bleeds from The Netherlands as The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble; a project originating with Jason Köhnen and Gideon Kiers to recreate scores for classic movies like Nosferatu and Metropolis. Angelic offerings scarcely appear to cradle your stay, but whirlwind strings and industrial plight will have their say. Aching with beauty and purpose, Here Be Dragons is a story I do not want to unhold.

Arrangements for Hallows’ eve.

    Incrível!

  2. Tonamel :

    This may be the first time I’ve heard of a band before you guys posted about them. They’re pretty great, and if I had any sort of brain I would have recommended them to you ages ago!

  3. Erik :

    Interesting! “Embers” almost has a Portishead vibe… two very different sounding tracks, which is always a promising sign. Gotta go look them up now – thanks!

  4. Alex :

    I’m not so good at sarcasm on the internet, but Kyle’s nauseatingly florid descriptions are either clever hipster meta-humor, or the product of a careworn thesaurus and an unhealthy level of pretentiousness.

  5. Jentree :

    i am sorry to point this out being a horrible speller and all.

    but its actually spelled The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble

  6. Kyle :

    thank you Jentree. i don’t know where my mind goes sometimes.

    Alex, i’m a cartoon scientist, not a hipster.

  7. FireFly :

    Wow the cover freaks me out, it looks like something from an acid/ hell trip but the music is cool though!

  8. drew :

    neat.

  9. Debra :

    Most music blogs fall flat with me, but there’s actually some gems here, this included. I’m looking forward to future posts.
