Man’s fate was sealed when he learned the art of forgetfulness. The worst thing he ever told himself is that things come to pass.

When the lying mirror is one’s best advisor, he is prone to fail.


The label Ungaikyō Prod. is a French outlet to promote Ambient and Dungeon Synth-oriented Music, inspired by the Japanese culture and (archaic / ancient) sonic scene. It was formed quite recently by Julien Lacroix, who has some solo-projects within that very comparable scene.

Recently, for example, he did create and release a rather vampire-themed thing as Oupyr (probably I will write a review on this recording soon).


As you might know in the meantime, Moloch Conspiracy’s frontman Julien Lacroix runs the new label Ungaikyō Prod., which releases Electronic Music (from Dark Ambient to Dungeon Synth) that is inspired by the (ancient) Japanese culture. The label releases material from some of Julien’s own solo-outfits (like the one this review deals with), as well as from other artists.

This did result in some intriguing new experiments, i.e.
