I learned about the one-man sci-fi doom project of New Hampshire's Timothy Lang-Grannan a couple years ago via WFMU's blog, where Lang-Grannan is quoted as saying, "People tell me my music sounds like a combination of Vangelis and Burzum." This particular track, from the 2010 album VI, sounds pretty evil, but only if the notion of evil were conceived in the mind of a Muppet. See for instance whatever the hell happens at 2:05.

You can listen to Enslaved by Owls' entire discography at Bandcamp, and versions of the first three albums are available free via the Internet Archive.
