Sorrow Leads To Salvation is the project of a Kyiv-based sound producer known under the alias Adam Maylow. Speaking of the sound, the artist tries to make it manifold, combining a lot of genres to reach a unique eclecticism across ambient, techno, instrumental hip-hop, IDM etc.
This record was inspired by works of an American poet Stephen Crane and features a trip through the darkness to the light with a bit of melancholy. Release name is taken from an upcoming final part of Robert Jordan’s “Wheel of Time” series. In Russia it is going to be published under the title “Memory of the Light”.
I was in the darkness;
I could not see my words
Nor the wishes of my heart.
Then suddenly there was a great light.
