ABANDONED ASYLUM (PL)

The Łódź based musician and graphic designer Łukasz "Dani" Czajka has been active on the Polish industrial scene already for more than a dozen years. He debuted in 2002 with his Zoth-Ommog project, but it is the dark ambient Abandoned Asylum, set up two years later, that remains his most important artistic venture. The project boasts four releases, the last of which, entitled Derelicts of Distant Hope, was put out by the influential American label Malignant Records. There is no unnecessary experimentation in Abandoned Asylum's music - the emphasis is first and foremost on the creation of a thick, dark and distinctive atmosphere, enriched with tens of nuances none the less.
