A sonic epilogue to Fionnlagh’s debut album, 'What Came After' builds on the dystopian, cinematic style set out in predecessor, 'What Came Before', with help from some of ambient’s most talented atmosphere specialists. A mix of reinterpretations and original material, the album sees an expansion of earlier themes, often with the contributing artists’ musical trademarks adding new emotive colours.
Like its predecessor, What Came After is not for the faint of hearted, yet it goes beyond the mere scare tactics of typical dark ambient, by leaning into the cinematic imaginations of the likes of Zimmer, Goransson and Jóhannsson. The album further benefits from the experience of some of ambient’s top names, and provides a diverse yet coherent sonic experience.
