Ambience, Groove & Distortion

Chris Hellstrom

Ambient soundscapes, heavy grooves, distorted guitars and orchestral instruments blended to create a dramatic collection instrumental pieces with a distinct cinematic flair.

"Ambience, Groove & Distortion" is a type of album I've wanted to make for a long time. I've always been very inspired by the dark instrumental pieces from bands/artists like Nine Inch Nails, Chris Vrenna, Celldweller etc. while also really enjoying what some electronic dace artist are doing. Ambience, Groove & Distortion is the result of taking all that inspiration and putting it through my creative filter and hopefully creating something cool and unique.

There's something very appealing about blending mellow soundscapes with heavy guitars and having a string section on top of some heavy percussion and drums. That contrast creates something really dramatic and interesting to me.

Had a great time putting this album together and I hope you enjoy it.
