This is the second release from Ange.Mac + Shaun Garea.
This full album is the soundtrack to the tabletop card game 'Doom Pilgrim' by War Claw Games which is available for purchase in both full retail and via 'print and play'.
The album features a number of fantasy and horror themed tracks jumping from dungeon crawls, to heroic voyages, through to dark churches, gloomy caves and beyond.
The game was designed by Waclaw Traier and he also provided the cover art to the album - see more of his fantastic work here HERE.
DOOM PILGRIM: Play the game, hear the terror...
Dark ambient/synth/drone/FX from New Zealand.
This new EP is a first‐time collaboration between NZ musicians Ange.Mac and Shaun Garea. This mish-mash of styles moves from dark ambient soundscapes to harsh industrial and experimental environments utilising piano, synth, and effects. The vocals, sometimes soft ‐ sometimes operatic, function as an anchor to the, at times, disparate sounds – helping to knit them together into a dreamlike collage.
The self titled EP was recorded, mixed and mastered at Ange and Garea's home studios over the lockdowns in NZ of 2021.
The tracks and EP can be found to purchase HERE.
Currently this is available as a digital only project - if any physical releases are scheduled links will be updated.

Forthcoming album of neoclassical/synth/ambient music.
This solo album by Shaun Garea will feature a series of themes and motifs built for the screen, for films that don't exist.
Galloping piano, gentle bells, miles and miles of reverb. Styles jumping between neoclassical, jazz, ambient, goth, and fantasy; this is the soundtrack to movies you may, after listening, want to watch - but just listen again and watch the scenes dance by in your mind.
Gentle to grandiose the album features; piano, analogue synth, modular synth, orchestral arrangements, vocals, and plenty of effects.
More information available shortly...
