Nightshade was a really naive attempt at making something dark sounding. At this point I hadn't even discovered dark ambient, and the closest thing I'd heard to it was Enigma and Enya. So Nightshade was essentially my attempt at making evil Enya, oddly enough. The production here is very choppy, perhaps even more so than Auditory Depressants. Still, I can't bring myself to let go of this one. There's a track here I've omitted, because it sucks - literally just a bunch of people talking backwards for a while. If you really want to hear it, it's on the big Silent Cicada compilation.
